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. – Description from mriskic

  • Foley Rancho Santa Rosa Pinot Noir Srh 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

  • Foley Estates Syrah Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Rancho Santa Rosa 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful dark purple in the glass. Woody aromas with some pruney thing. Very pleasant on the tip of the tongue--fruit flavors, blackberry. The wine flows very nicely over the palate. A touch of tannin, but nothing to be concerned about. A very firm wine, but very mellow on the back of the palate. US$30.00 at the winery in 2009. Read More

  • I know there have been at least one or two conversations about buying wines at Costco, but I happened to catch the one hour documentary about Costco on CNBC, last night.  They actually spent a significant portion of the program (8-9 minutes) about wine sales.  Here is the thing that blew me away.  Apparently, annual wine sales at Costco exceed a...

  • Foley Estate Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Rancho Santa Rosa 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I found this bottle at Costco and thought it would be a good value. First, I love the Santa Rita Hills appellation. The weather changes here dramatically as you work your way from the coast to the eastern most part of the region, near Happy Canyon where they are making some fantastic Cabernet. West of the 101 you'll find the jewel of Pinotlandia... Read More

  • Foley Rancho Santa Rosa Pinot Noir Srh 2007

    Snoothrank:

    (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 ... Read More

  • Foley Estates Pinot Noir 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent pinot, excellent value. Strong dark fruits but an underlying earthy/smoky/vanilla(?? is that possible?) flavor. I love this wine, but they don't often pop up in NH. Probably among my favorite pinot noirs. Read More
