Foxen Red Rhone Blend Santa Ynez Valley Cuvée Jeanne Marie 2006

Member Review by jmoose28:

Color: Deep Ruby color with very fine tannins for a young wine. Smell: Light vanilla with tobacco and leather notes on the nose. Taste: Dried Cherry with lingering plum and spice notes. Spice notes include anise and clove. Overall: Drank this wine with pasta with light pancetta and tomato sauce. Could pair better with heartier foods including game meats and duck. Really enjoyed this wine!

Since that time, their dedication has remained the same—the creation of very small-production, vineyard-designated wines using a "minimalist" approach to winemaking. The winery is named in memory of William Benjamin Foxen, an English sea captain and Dick's great-great grandfather, who came to Santa Barbara in the early 1800's. In 1837, this Santa Barbara County pioneer purchased the Rancho Tinaquaic, a Mexican Land Grant that originally totaled nearly 9000 acres and comprised most of what is now known as Foxen Canyon. Captain Foxen adopted the distinctive "anchor" as his ranch cattle brand, which has become a trademark of the winery. It is very fitting that FOXEN has made its home on the 2000-acre Rancho Tinaquaic, which remains in family hands. With the completion of FOXEN’s new solar-powered winery and tasting room in August 2009, the historic and beloved “tasting shack was renamed “foxen 7200”, where Bill and Dick now feature their Bordeaux and Cal-Ital-style wines, under a newly designed label. FOXEN pinots, chardonnays and Rhône-style wines will be showcased in the new tasting room at 7600 Foxen Canyon Road. Read less
