Foxen Santa Maria Pinot Noir 2015
A very pretty and attractively fresh nose features essence of red cherry, raspberry and soft lavender notes. I like the sense of vibrancy to the nicely detailed flavors that terminate in a refreshing and dusty finish where a hint of bitter cherry appears. Delicious and gulpable in the best sense.

Wine AdvocatePale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir is scented of violets, cinnamon stick and Ceylon tea over a core of red cherries and raspberries, plus a hint of dried Provence herbs. The light to medium-bodied palate offers up a fantastic intensity of perfumed red berries supported by soft, silky tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with a lovely herbal lift.
