2016 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Red Blend Top Pick!
2016 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Red Blend

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Syrah, which is enhanced by 15% Petit Verdot, is one of the better wines from the region on the market for less than $25. Awesome aromas of pepper, blackberry and charred beef are intense and deep, while the palate is lifted by bountiful acidity and flavors of boysenberry, white, black and green peppercorns, incense and sagebrush. (MK)" (12/2017) 88-90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled, the 2016 Para Maria Red Wine is a partnership between vineyard managers Ruben and Maria Solorzano and the Stolpman Family. It’s a mix of 88% Syrah and 12% Petite Verdot that was fermented wit ...Read More »

2015 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Syrah Tous les Jours comes from a multitude of sites in the Santa Ynez Valley and is 100% Syrah that saw a touch of whole cluster and aging all in neutral barrels. I always love this wine and it reminds me of a youthful Côtes du Rhône with its raspberry, pepper and garrigue-scented bouquet. Forward, delicious, beautifully textured and ready to go, drink it over the coming 2-4 years. I’ve always loved the wines from Andrew Murray, and his latest 2015s are rock solid across the board. In addition, they all have singular, impeccably made characters ...Read More »

2014 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark aromas of black currant and black olive meet with charred beef and supple herbs of dill and anise on this wine's excellent nose. The sip is very full and hefty in body, allied with a juicy acidity and fruity character of concentrated blackberry that's imminently appealing. More elegant touches of lavender, rosemary and incense round out the palate." (3/2017) 91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Estate is surprisingly succulent for a young Stolpman Syrah, which Peter Stolpman attributes to warmer nights and softer extractions.

2015 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is very pretty, but like all of these 2015s, it also needs time to be at its best. Floral and lifted, with tons of energy and tannin, the 2015 is shaping up to be a real beauty. Hints of lavender, licorice, smoke, plum and black cherry build into the super-expressive finish in this soulful midweight Syrah from Melville. (AG)" (9/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Syrah Sta. Rita Hills is another terrific wine that's always a good value.

2014 Tensley Santa Barbara County Syrah

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2014 Syrah Santa Barbara is a sexy, sweetly fruited and voluptuous Syrah that offers up a rockin' bouquet of blueberry, blackberry, violets and pepper. It should drink nicely on release and over the following 5-6 years. Santa Barbara County’s Joey Tensley continues to make ripe, textured and voluptuous wines that deliver serious bang for the buck. The latest 2013s and 2014s are all outstanding. However, recent vintages are pushing on the sweetness level, and in a number of cases, there’s obvious residual sugar in the wines ...Read More »

2015 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard is a straight up, beast of a Syrah. Its glass staining purple color is followed by a smorgasbord of Syrah goodness; blackberry jam, plums, exotic flowers, hints of tapenade, scrub brush and violets all literally soar from the glass. This gives way to a full-bodied, unctuous, and concentrated 2015 that has sweet tannin, notable freshness and a great finish. It’s primary and incredibly un-evolved, and needs 2-3 years of cellaring, yet is a sensational wine.

2014 Shafer "Relentless" Napa Valley Syrah

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Checking in as a blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Petit Sirah, the 2014 Syrah Relentless is a killer bottle of wine that offers decadent notes of blackcurrants, barbecued meats, seaweed wrapper, lavender, exotic pepper, and liquid smoke. This is a rich, unctuous Rhône inspired blend that packs serious amounts of fruit and richness, yet the elegant, forward style of the vintage keeps it silky, polished and incredibly drinkable. While I haven't had every vintage of this cuvee (it was first made in 1999), my money is on this being up with the top handful of vinta ...Read More »

2013 Holus Bolus Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "#6 on Top 100 *Best of 2016, Editors' Choice* Though this bottling is Peter Hunken's least-expensive Syrah, it gives his single-vineyard expressions a serious run for the money for best of vintage. Amazing aromas of chipped asphalt, smoked beef, dense boysenberry, soy, cedar, sandalwood and soy drop into a palate of peppery berry juice, beef jerky, underripe blackberry and elderberry, and pepper-crusted teriyaki beef.

2014 Qupé Central Coast Syrah (375ml)

Wine & Spirits: "Bob Lindquist’s multivineyard blend has its typical savory bent in 2014-tobacco, dried herbs, bitter chocolate, tangy acidity. It’s lean and simple, a quaffable syrah for pork chops." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Qupé (pronounced 'kyoo-pay') is the Chumash Indian word for California poppy, and for many, is also the "first word" in the Central Coast area's Rhône-style wines.

Medium to full-bodied, fruit-loaded and forward, with tons of plum, cracked pepper and garrigue, it has notable tannin and a great, decadent and heady finish.

2015 Halcón "Alturas" Yorkville Highlands Syrah

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Syrah Alturas is also a beauty that has a passing resemblance to a good vintage of Guigal’s Côte Rôtie la Mouline (just with less oak). Violets, incense, spring flowers, blackberries and blueberry notes all flow to a full-bodied, elegant, seamlessly textured Syrah that has plenty of classic pepper and spice, solid mid-palate depth and ripe tannin on the finish. It needs an hour in the decanter if drinking over the coming 2-3 years, and will have 15+ years of overall longevity.

It's a huge, black fruited, smoked duck, olive tapenade and tobacco leaf scented beauty that has full-bodied richness, a wealth of fruit, ripe, present tannin and a great finish. It's a classic Herman Story wine that shows just a touch more focus and firmness on the palate than the 2014, which is the vintage profile. (JebDunnuck.com)" 93 points Vinous: "Bright purple.

2014 Baker Lane "Sonoma Coast Cuvée" Sonoma Coast Syrah

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Grown at the organically farmed Baker Lane estate, this shows the sunny warmth of the 2014 vintage, providing an unusually muscular expression of coastal syrah. It starts out with a compact, meaty black-olive flavor, then keeps gaining nuance with air, turning toward manzanita bark and peppercorn, spicy brightness breaking through the savory bulwark of structure and the alcohol warmth so that a fresh, iron-tinged woodland flavor lasts. If you happen to have a friend who hunts wild boar, this would make a great holiday gift. (475 cases)" K&L Notes: Winery Notes: "The ... Read More »

Black cherry, blackberry, cloves, leather and licorice give the wine its inner sweetness and textural richness, but there is also plenty of aromatic freshness and lift. Violet, camphor, savory herb and scorched earth give the wine a real sense of gravitas. I was quite frankly blown away by the wines I tasted at Marietta this year.

It is rich, full and fleshy with great varietal integrity, and its deep, very precise, blackberry fruit is infused with plenty of the grape’s distinctive pepper-and-game spice. It is at once both sturdy and surprisingly well-mannered with an inkling of polish that is bound to tempt early drinking.

2015 Ojai Santa Barbara County Syrah

90 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah (Santa Barbara County) is a gorgeous wine that punches above its weight. Sweet tobacco, herb, licorice, menthol and dark-fleshed fruit meld together effortlessly. Dark, pliant and inviting, but not at all heavy, the 2015 has much to offer. Floral and savory overtones from a combination of cool sites and 30% stems add notable character. The 2015 is a bit tannic for an appellation-level Syrah. Even so, this is impressive stuff. (AG)" (9/2017)
