Foley Rancho Santa Rosa Pinot Noir Srh 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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

(Tasted 1/21/2011) Pretty garnet color, not terribly dark. Oaky aromas with some cinnamon(?). Medium bodied on the palate. Lightly fruited--I often seem to taste cherries in Pinot Noir, and while I get some cherry, it is not big. Very drinkable. Some tannic astringency and nice light acid. Some alcohol on the finish, but that is the first place that pops up. Peggy is making Boeuf Bourguignon, tonight. So, this wine was picked in keeping with the spirit. US$40.00 at the winery in 2009.
