Fox Den Vineyards sits on the Western boundary of the Green Valley AVA in the Russian River Valley, 12 miles from the coast. The microclimate has moderate daytime temperatures, cool nights, and early-morning fog, resulting in a long growing season that is perfect for Pinot Noir. The grapes boast good sugar levels, ripe tannins, and high acid, resulting in dense and complex wines.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A bright nose of delicate blackberry and vanilla. The palate is finely structured but holds ripe, juicy black & blue fruits with depth and balance.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted, and gently crushed. They underwent a seven-day cold soak followed by fermentation with a combination of punch down and pump-over maceration techniques to enhance flavor extraction.
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 vintage in Russian River Valley was exceptional. The combination of a cold spring and prolonged drought conditions throughout the year led to an early harvest and lower yields than past vintages. However, a sunny growing season, along with a few key days with rainfall throughout the year, resulted in wines that are complex and have balanced tannins, beautifully concentrated flavors, rich color, and the ability to age for a long time.
