||| $65 | Foxen 7200 “Tinaquaic” Cabernet Franc

Description

Bill Wathen and Dick Dore have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery & Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time, their dedication has remained the same – the creation of very small production, sustainably-farmed, vineyard-focused wines using a “minimalist” approach to winemaking. Foxen is named in memory of William Benjamin Foxen, an English sea captain and Dick’s great-great grandfather, who came to Santa Barbara in the early 1800s and purchased the Rancho Tinaquaic. Captain Foxen adopted the distinctive “anchor” as his cattle brand, which became the trademark of the winery. Foxen is at home on the history Rancho Tinaquaic with its solar-powered winery, tasting room and 7200 “shack.”

Foxen 7200 is a range of Bordeaux wines from the team at Foxen. These bold, intensely savory wines showcase the potential of Bordeaux varieties in various sites within Santa Barbara.

 

“The 2019 Cabernet Franc Tinaquaic Vineyard is beautiful and expressive, with plenty of varietal character in its red fruit, grilled herbs, leather, mocha, menthol and spice. Savory notes are beautifully woven throughout. The 2019 is undeniably appealing, and will drink well right out of the gate.”
