One of the best kept secrets at Foxen is their Chenin Blanc made from the oldest planted vines in California Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard was planted in 1966. This wine has incredible depth and complexity and has an aging potential of a decade or more.
WINE WATCH REVIEW: There were only 900 cases of the 2019 vintage of Foxen’s Chenin Blanc produced and this wine has a wonderful bouquet of quince kiwi and starfruit with notes of lightly toasted oak spice and a distinct minerality, white flowers and more as this wine opens. Rich and creamy on the tongue with a solid core of fruit, zesty acidity and a long-layered finish. Try this wine on the second day after the bottle is opened it is even better!

2018 Foxen Vineyard & Winery Chardonnay Block UU Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley
Price: $37.50 Your Price: $33.00 Quantity in Stock: 12
(93 Points) The 2018 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU sports a light gold color as well as a pure, crystalline bouquet of honeyed apple, pineapple, citrus blossom, spice, and white flower. It has a kiss of background oak, but it's beautifully integrated, and the fruit is front and center. With good acidity, a balanced, layered texture, and a great finish, it’s already drinking nicely yet should keep for 7-8 years, if you're so inclined. Jeb Dunnuck

2017 Foxen Pinot Noir Block 43 Santa Maria Valley
Price: $75.00 Your Price: $66.00
(93 points) "The 2017 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 43 is bright, punchy and full of character. Next to the Block 8, the Block 43 has more overt fruit, while floral and savory notes lie in the background. Sweet red cherry, plum, and blood orange build in a supple, absolutely engaging Pinot that will drink well right out of the gate. This is such a pretty wine." - Vinous
