This Foxen vintage is part of their Rhône style portfolio of wines. It's a co-fermented 82% Syrah and 18% Viognier blend from the Vogelzang vineyard. That unusual pairing leads to some very interesting flavors on the tongue - stone fruit and light red berry in a medium bodied juicy red wine. This one came in my December shipment and is always a wonderfully drinkable wine. ~$44 | #foxen #syrah #santaynez #vogelzang
