"For a world that’s gotten used to jammy, ultraripe Zinfandel, this is a refresher course reminding us that Zinfandel made in a more restrained fashion can be fresh, exuberant and spicy. Foxglove is perennially a source of good values from the Central Coast of California. It’s the second label of Bob and Jim Varner, who make fine Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from the Santa Cruz Mountains."~Eric Asimov

"The 2015 Zinfandel is bright, refreshing and full of energy. Sweet red cherry fruit, floral notes and tobacco are all given an extra kick of aromatic and acid-driven brightness. Medium in body and lithe, the 2015 delivers serious quality for the money. The 2015 is 80% Zinfandel and 20% Petite Sirah. Don't miss it."~Antonio Galloni

"At the core of Foxglove is Bob Varner, also the winemaker at Varner Wines. Beginning with their first vintage in 1991, Bob sources the wine from a variety of places, all of which are in Edna Valley. The resulting wine has Central Coast appellation pricing, and is full of complex fruit flavors that the Edna Valley appellation is known for.

Edna Valley, a relatively small appellation, grows mostly Chardonnay on about 1000 acres. The entire acreage is tightly controlled by a few owners employing the most up-to-date vineyard practices that give the valley impressive evenness. Located just south of San Luis Obispo, its vineyards are some of California's closest to the Pacific Ocean. Mild winters, cool, foggy summer, and clay-loam soils produce a combination of flavors that have been described as "textbook Central Coast."
