Foley Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

'Highly recommended,' California Grapevine: Medium-light ruby; pleasant, herbal, toasty, cherry fruit aroma with an early note of sulfur that dissipated with airing; medium-full body; tight, cherry fruit flavors with firm acidity, and tending to be a bit lean on the finish; medium to medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. 14.2% alcohol; released September 2013. (Nov 2013)
