The folks at NoRTH at La Encantada are unveiling the newest vintage of Fox Restaurant Concept's custom-crafted wine from 3 to 6 p.m., Friday, Dec. 23.
The new vintage was made at Misha's Vineyard in New Zealand and is the eighth signature vintage Sam Fox's restaurant company has produced. The wine will be available
My wine expertise sort of grinds to a halt whenever the price tag goes over $11.99 - I'm working on it - so for the time being here's a description from the folks who handle public relations for the company:
The Fox Block Eight is a landmark vintage in several ways for Jasper and Fox Restaurant Concepts. It fulfills the goal of producing an international Pinot blend, created with renowned New Zealand winemaker Olly Masters of Misha’s Vineyard. As the popularity of Fox Block continues to grow, it also signifies Jasper’s success in finding Pinot high-end producers that own their land, and are capable and willing to commit a significant “block” of their vineyards and resources exclusively to a Fox Block vintage. From producing 140 cases of the initial Fox Block One1, Fox Restaurant Concepts will now release over 2,200 cases for the New Zealand Fox Block Eight.
