2006 Foxen "Toasted Rope" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

SKU #1041653 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Even more brilliant is the Cote Rotie look-alike, the 2006 Syrah Toasted Rope. A blend of 85% Syrah and a whopping 15% Viognier (an hommage to Guigal’s Cote Rotie La Mouline?), it reveals exotic lychee nut and honeysuckle characteristics interwoven with notions of sweet cassis, kirsch, and licorice. Medium to full-bodied with fabulous concentration, a velvety, voluptuous texture, and superb length, this is an amazing effort from the Santa Ynez Valley. Anticipated maturity: now-2015. I hope readers have recognized how gorgeous the Foxen wines have been over the last five or six years. Their individuality and distinctiveness as well as high quality are evidenced in their newest releases. Kudos to Foxen for producing these four brilliant efforts! (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Spice, nutmeg, roasted coffee and dried berry flavors are bold and intense in a rich, mouthcoating style. Best from 2010 through 2015. (Web-2008) Inner quote mark
