Foxen 2004 Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Chenin Blanc (Santa Maria Valley)

Editors' Choice

Winemaker Bill Wathan loves making this wine, which is the best Chenin Blanc in California. Made from 40-year old vines, barrel fermented, bone dry and aged in older French oak, it will change your mind about this variety. Long in lemongrass, kiwi and licorice flavors, with bracing acidity, it has a rich, creamy mouthfeel, great complexity, and a long, interesting finish.
