Foxlow is a new neighborhood restaurant on St. John Street in Clerkenwell in London. Zeren Wilson describes the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon on Foxlow’s wine list:
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful thing, but the opportunities to taste at the elegant end of the scale are rare. Hallelujah for the Smith brothers, whose estate in the prestigious Spring Mountain is planted on very steep slopes on the top of the mountain: the resulting grapes retain freshness which gives this wine’s great balance. Plush and seductive on the palate, dominated by cassis and black cherry, this is a great example of a restrained wine from a region better known for fruit bombs.
Julie Ann Kodmur is a second-generation Californian who was born in San Francisco and grew up in La Jolla. As an eighth grader she was the runner-up in the state spelling bee. She’s lived in Italy and New York and now lives in the Napa Valley with her family. She is a marketing and publicity consultant in the wine industry. Her business life can be seen at http://www.julieannkodmur.com. This is the home for the overflow. The ‘title’ is a reference to a sculpture honoring an Argentinean journalist who practiced his craft in the 1930s before literally dying for his words. No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
