Winemaker's Notes

We are proud to introduce the 2000 Foothills Reserve—Foxen's answer to Cheval Blanc. Due to the overwhelming reception for the inaugural (and extremely limited) 1999 Foothills Reserve, we decided to make this special wine an integral part of the Foxen family. The fruit is sourced from the exciting new Happy Canyon viticultural area (located in the eastern portion of the Santa Ynez foothills, at the base of the Los Padres National Forest), and from a hillside vineyard (overlooking the Alamo Pintado corridor in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley).

This wine displays aromas and flavors of bright red currant, licorice, cherry, vanilla, chocolaty earth and exotic spice. The soft and plush merlot meets the firm structure and tannin of the cabernet franc. There is a long lingering aftertaste.

91 Points: "Cool and firm in its structure, this blend of merlot (70 percent) and cabernet franc is richly fruited yet tense and fragrant, suited to lobster in the same seaside logic as an austere Bordeaux. An oceanic red." - Wine & Spirits
