James MacPhail's Notes
The 2013 vintage in Sonoma County is widely regarded as one of the best of the 2000s. An ideal growing season led to beautiful fruit at harvest time, and this Pinot Noir from a truly wonderful vineyard certainly lives up to the hype. Age-worthy for 15+ years, this Fox Den Pinot Noir continues to evolve in complexity and will make a powerful statement in any collection or gathering.

Fox Den Vineyard
Named for a family of foxes who have occupied the Smith family’s idyllic vineyard for over 50 years, Fox Den Vineyard sits on the western edge of the Russian River Valley, with ideal conditions for growing world-class Pinot Noir. We partner with three generations of Smith family members to select grapes that bring balance, maturity, and structure to our Fox Den Vineyard Pinot Noir.Explore Vineyard
