"Foxen's UU Block from the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard fights it out every year with the estate Tinaquaic Chardonnay for top honors. In this cool vintage, the former wins out by a hair. Dry, steely and crisp in acidity, it shows vast tropical fruit, orange, vanilla, honey and buttered toast flavors that are delicious and refined. The richness and elegance strongly suggest pairing it with lobster."

"The 2011 Chardonnay Tinaquaic Vineyard wraps around the palate with sensual layers of fruit. This is a slightly richer, more textured style than the Bien Nacido, largely owing to much lower yelds in the vineyard. Honeysuckle, orange blossom, mint and spices flow through to the creamy finish."
