  • Foley Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Rancho Santa Rosa 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Hugely ripe on the nose, simple, woody and jammy with obvious alcohol. Candied in the mouth with underlying dry tannins. This is undrinkable with too much of everything. Super fruity sweet, oaky and alcoholic but I know some folks like this style. 80pts Read More
