Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Crystallized boysenberry and lilac aromas are boosted by black peppercorn on the clean nose. There is chalky grip and bright acidity on the full-bodied palate, where jasmine and violet flavors lead into a candied grape tone.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Combines elegance and brooding power, offering layered blueberry, spiced cinnamon and smoked meat accents that dance on a long finish, ending with refined tannins. Drink now through 2026.
JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck
From the Los Olivos District and mostly destemmed and aged in 50% new French and Hungarian oak, the 2016 Syrah Williamson-Doré Vineyard sports a saturated purple color to go with notes of blackberries, singed cedarwood, ground pepper, and charred meats. It shows the focused, more firm style of the vintage yet has notable concentration, ripe tannins, and a good finish. It's a powerful yet elegant Syrah that's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and shine for 7-8 years.

Foxen Vineyard, California
Foxen Vineyard Winery Image
Bill Wathen and Dick Dore have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery & Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time, their dedication has remained the same - the creation of very small production, sustainably-farmed, vineyard-focused wines using a "minimalist" approach to winemaking. Foxen 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 1800s and purchased the Rancho Tinaquaic. Captain Foxen adopted the distinctive "anchor" as his cattle brand, which became the trademark of the winery. Foxen is at home on the history Rancho Tinaquaic with its solar-powered winery, tasting room and 7200 "shack."

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
