Foley Estates Vineyard & Winery at Rancho Santa Rosa is the realization of vintner Bill Foley's dream to produce world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Santa Barbara County. A historic parcel located in the Sta. (Santa) Rita Hills region of the Santa Ynez Valley, Rancho Santa Rosa was formerly a thoroughbred horse ranch. In 1998, the 460-acre property was purchased and planted to 230 acres of vineyard. Devoted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah, the vineyard has been subdivided into 59 micro-blocks with each being farmed, harvested and vinified separately. The handsome stables have been refurbished to house the winery, with tremendous detail going into the planning of a modern facility, while honoring age-old winemaking tradition. Read less

Intense aroma of plums and dark cherries with a hint of earth. Gentle oak. Ripe and lush, with moderate acidity. Long finish. Superbly balanced. One of Foley's best.

This 2008 Pinot Noir opens with enticing aromas of dark berries, chocolate and toasty oak. The palate is laced with cherries, blackberries, vanilla and lavender. This is a rich, fleshy wine held together with a solid backbone of silky tannins and firm natural acidity. It drinks beautifully with duck, turkey, grilled meats and salmon.
