This long lasting wine opens up with aromas of earthy green notes followed by dark ripe cherries. The palate has definite oak spice followed by a long finish of rich dark cherries and baking spice with tamed but noticeable acidity.
Description

Exclusively planted for Foxen in 1996 by Bien Nacido Vineyard, the eleven-acre Block 8 sits on the highest point and one of the steepest sections of this Santa Maria Bench vineyard. Upon harvest, the grapes are whole-berry destemmed into small, open-top fermenters as individual clonal lots, where they see a 2-day maceration. The wine ages for 16 months in French oak, of which 44% is new. The wine is bottled within fining or filtration.
