Foxen Vineyard & Winery, 2015 Foxen Chenin 'Old Vines' Ernesto Wickenden

"The 2015 Chenin Blanc Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard is rich, lush and forward, with quite a bit of old-vine intensity that gives the wine its shape and volume. Powerful and exquisitely beautiful as it opens up in the glass, the 2015 has a lot to say. The Ernest Wickenden Chenin remains one of the most distinctive whites being made in California today. Readers should expect an especially phenolic, savory style."
