94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Intriguing lemongrass, Asian pear, chamomile, jasmine and pink grapefruit aromas arise on the nose of this dynamic single-block bottling. Tons of energy show on the sip, which is light and yet offers lots of intriguing flavors, from white sesame and chalk to lime peels and grippy yellow grapefruit pithiness."

"Foxen's 2014 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU is one of the quirkiest California Chardonnays readers will come across. The plant material here is Chardonnay grafted onto own-rooted Riesling rootstock that was originally planted in the early 1970s. Oddly enough, this wine often shows distinctly tropical, Riesling-inflected notes, as it does again in 2014. White peach, ash, slate, pear and crushed rocks show superb energy allied to power in a Chardonnay with searing intensity, fabulous balance and tons of personality."

93 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

" The 2014 Chardonnay Tinaquaic Vineyard presents a much deeper and more phenolic expression of Chardonnay. Oily and viscous, with tremendous fruit intensity, the Tinaquaic offers superb nuance and complexity throughout. Scents of hazelnut, orange blossom and honey give the wine its distinctive exoticism and overall feel. Dry farming seems to give the Tinaquaic much of its distinctive personality and pedigree. This is another superb wine from Foxen."

2013 Chardonnay Tinaquaic Vineyard – 91-93 points Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Sweet lemon peel and floral notes emerge from the 2013 Chardonnay Tinaquaic Vineyard. This bright, impeccably textured Santa Maria Chardonnay is built on silkiness, energy and texture. There is a lot to look forward to. The partial malo style and the choice to not stir the lees yields a beautifully focused Chardonnay.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"One of the more anticipated alternative whites from Santa Barbara County each year, this wine shows light honey brittle, sour tangerine and a touch of sour cream on a bright and lithe nose. The palate offers delicate cherimoya and soft nectarine fruit cut by lime juice and orange rinds, proving light but bursting with energy and flavors."

89-91 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2014 Chenin Blanc, which emerges from 50 year-old vines, is rich, phenolic and intense to the core, with a real sense of apricot/peach pit character that dominates. Sweet floral and spice notes add nuance as the wine opens up, but the Chenin remains quite structured and intense, at least today. This is one of the most distinctive Chenin Blancs readers will come across."
