Foley Estate Winery Pinot Noir
Foley Estates Vineyard and Winery at Rancho Santa Rosa is the realization of vintner Bill Foley's dream to produce world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Santa Barbara County. A historic parcel located in the Santa Rita Hills region of the Santa Ynez Valley, Rancho Santa Rosa was formerly a thoroughbred horse ranch. In 1998, Bill purchased the 460-acre property and planted 230 acres of vineyard. Devoted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah, the vineyard has been subdivided into 59 micro-blocks with each being farmed, harvested and vinified separately. The handsome stables have been refurbished to house the winery, with tremendous detail going into the planning of a modern facility, while honouring age-old winemaking tradition. Highly regarded by leading wine critics and sommeliers, Foley's Burgundian-influenced portfolio has become a flagship property in the South Central Coast.

TASTING NOTESAromatics of juicy cherry cola, raspberry sorbet and faint notes of black pepper awaken your senses. The aromas are accented by flavours of red cranberry, soft oak and vanilla bean with angular tannin and a bright acidity. Notes of toasted graham cracker, sweet cigar and black tea come through on the finish.
FOOD PAIRINGPair this wine with rare filet of steak or carpaccio.
