95 points                            
Beautiful New Pinot Noir release from Foxen - limited.

95 Points Wine Enthusiast:  "Fresh and tart wild cherry and crushed cranberry meet with intriguing touches of fennel fron, mustard, rose hips, potpourri and tons of garrigue on the now of this bottling. The palate packs vibrancy into each sip, redolent with flavors of tomato leaf, cherry tomato, kalamata olive, underripe raspberry, anise, bay leaf and even earthy mugwort. It conveys and extreme sense of place."

93 Points Robert Parker:
  "Spicy and complex, with lots of sour cherries, dried underbrush and crushed flowers, the 2014 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard (aged 17 months in 50% new French oak) is medium-bodied, silky and polished on the palate. It has fine tannin and a clean, classy, balanced style that's already hard to resist. Nevertheless, it will evolve for 5-7 years...

...This Santa Maria estate is run with incredible talent and passion by Bill Wathen and Dick Doré, who have been making wine together since 1985. They completed construction on a new winery in 2009 and they fashion a number of whites, numerous single vineyard and appellation Pinot Noirs, two Syrahs, and three Bordeaux blends. The wines are always impeccably made and shine more for their elegance and nuance than sheer power and richness.
