Foley Estate 2010 Pinot Noir, Rancho Santa Rosa, Santa Rita Hills
Named Wine Enthusiast Magazine's Person of the Year for 2010, William Foley II produces outstanding wines on his 460 acre estate in the Santa Rita Hills AVA in Santa Barbara County. In Matt Kramer's California Wine Book he says "Of all the Santa Rita Hills wineries, Foley has a shot at leading a very sophisticated and competitive pack." He call's the estate Vineyard, Rancho Santa Rosa where this wine comes from "The real jewel...", and it's easy to see why. This is rich, deeply flavored Pinot that's beautifully balanced. The estate has 31 different blocks of Pinot that are each harvested and fermented separately, then blended and aged in French oak for 12 months. Limited.
