Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Plump aromas of violet, candied boysenberry, black cherry and pie crust make for a very inviting nose on this bottling. The palate is even more complex, showing lavender, rosemary blossoms, bay leaf and white pepper, set against a ripe black-currant backdrop.

JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck

Made from 100% Syrah aged 18 months in neutral oak, the 2017 Syrah Williamson-Doré Vineyard gives up a vivid purple/plum color as well as a juicy bouquet of plum and black cherry fruits, spiced meats, ground pepper, and violets. Incredibly floral (especially with time in the glass), this medium to full-bodied Syrah has ripe, sweet tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. It's a classic, cool-climate Syrah from California that will evolve nicely for a decade.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

Scents of mulberry and five spice give an impression of mulled juice at first. The flavors seem muted, but still convey plummy intensity, the texture elegant, with a forest-floor feel to the tannins that calls for wild-mushroom pizza.

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.”
