Much more delicate and retiring than the 2010 Fox Den, the 2011 is still an elegant and flavorful mouthful. Light, transparent ruby, with an earthy, floral nose that follows through in the flavors. Fruit leans towards blueberry and raspberry. Good Pinot, but certainly not in the top echelon of D-G wines. Drink up: this wine is ready to drink and I think will not develop any further. - HK 2017-09-17
