2013 Foxen Chenin Blanc Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Old Vines ($25) 90	 points

2013 Foxen Chenin Blanc Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Old Vines, 90 points

The 2013 Chenin Blanc Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Old Vines is soft, supple and accessible. Pear, melon, almonds and spices inform the expressive, silky finish. This is an impeccable white from Foxen to drink now and over the next few years.


Cellar Favorites

2002 Salon - Magnum

Tasted from magnum, the 2002 Salon is utterly magnificent. The flavors are finely sculpted throughout in a Champagne that impresses for its tension and total brilliance.
