James MacPhail's Notes
A moderate growing season in 2014 led to healthy, ripe fruit at harvest, and the Pinot Noir nurtured by the Smith family impressed as always. Age-worthy for 15+ years, this Fox Den Pinot Noir continues to grow in complexity and is the ultimate shareable bottle for a group, celebration, or gift.
- 10 months in 100% French Oak (35% new)

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
