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 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Light raspberry-sorbet notes meet with fresh fennel fronds, pepper and cinnamon on the nose of this bottling from Chad Melville and family. It's tight and tart on the palate, with dried cranberry, pine needle and eucalyptus flavors that juxtapose with the more fruit-driven nose. (MK)" (2/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Spice box, wild herbs, black currants and black cherry notes all emerge from this nicely fruited, plump, mouth-filling 2014 Pinot Noir Estate, which has present tannin and a solid finish. Mostly destemmed and aged 11 months in neutral barrels, it's a good value and w ...Read More »

2014 Stolpman "Originals" Ballard Canyon Syrah (Previously $40)

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "One of the first wineries to see Ballard Canyon's potential as an important locale in which to grow and make wines from classic Rhône varieties, Stolpman is very much an original and continues to produce some of the state's finest Syrahs. This particular effort shows great varietal definition and depth with loads of peppery spice and a strong gamy streak indelibly marking it as nothing other than Syrah. It is a big, intense, fully ripe, well-constructed wine that does not abandon structure and balance in its successful pursuit of richness, and, in the en ...Read More »

2014 Domaine de la Côte Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $45)

97 points Decanter: "Sashi Moorman and Rajat Parr make their Pinots taste effortlessly elegant, but it’s a fine-tuned approach in the cellar and ultra-attentive viticulture that achieve those mouthwatering results. Their estate bottling is like a juicy cross between Burgundy’s Volnay and Beaujolais’ Morgon. (CD)" (12/2016) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman farm several former Evening Land vineyards, planted in 2007 in the far western Santa Rita Hills. You can taste the extremity of these cool, windy sites in the wine: a salty crunch, the acidity bright and appetizing, like biting i ...Read More »

2013 Lincourt "Steel" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (Elsewhere $15)

Connoisseurs Guide: "No matter that this unoaked bottling treds a direct, green apple line with few complex adjuncts in its makeup, such is the way of Chardonnays of its ilk, and this one makes a pretty good stab at capturing lively, somewhat juicy fruit. There is a not unexpected bit of fresh, slightly candied fruit here and little in the way of the rich, buttery side of the variety to be sure. Yet, all in all, this wine is both easy to take and easy on the wallet. *One Star, Good Value*" (7/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This stainless-steel take shows lime juice, golden apples and white pepper on t ...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. (MK)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: From the winery: "The 2013 Holus Bolus Syrah is sourced entirely from John Sebastiano Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. This wine... Read More »

2015 Cambria "Benchbreak" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chardonnay Bench Break offers up notes of ripe apricots, honeydew melon and grapefruit with touches of brioche and toasted almonds. Medium-bodied, it has a pleasantly creamy texture with tons of stone fruit and citrus flavors, finishing long. Awesome value! (LPB)" (9/2017) Jeb Dunnuck: "Showing plenty of reductive qualities on the nose, the 2015 Chardonnay Benchbreak is fruit forward, nicely textured and charming on the palate, with plenty of texture. I expect it would improve with a vigorous decant. (JebDunnuck.com)" (8/2017) K&L Notes: Cambria takes pride in being an "est... Read More »

2014 Star Lane Santa Ynez Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Star Lane Santa Ynez Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Star Lane Vineyard is bold, pungent and bursting with fruit. Deep and unctuous in texture, but with considerable aromatic lift, the 2014 offers a terrific expression of Happy Canyon. Black cherry, blackberry, grilled herbs, menthol, sage and licorice infuse the rich, inviting finish. (AG) 95+" (9/2017) K&L Notes: Praise for the producer from Antonio Galloni: "Tyler Thomas has done a remarkable job since taking over at Dierberg and sister property Star Lane in 2013.

2013 Jonata "Todos" Central Coast Red Blend

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lastly, the entry level 2013 Todos Proprietary Red Wine is a smokin’ wine that’s made from 78% Syrah, 15% Sangiovese, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Viognier, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. Full-bodied, supple, elegant and concentrated, with impeccable balance, it offers lots of purple fruit characteristics, spice, dried flowers and underbrush aromas and flavors. It’s one of the more approachable wines in the lineup, yet it will evolve for a decade or more on its purity and balance. This Ballard Canyon estate pulls from estate vineyards, a ...Read More »

2014 Gainey "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (Elsewhere $22)

92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay is very pretty, supple and nuanced. Apricot, orange blossom, mint, butter and sweet spices flesh out. Supple, forward and tasty, the 2014 is a solid choice for drinking over the next few years. The 2014 finishes with lovely brightness and intensity. This is very nicely done. Gainey makes as many as twenty different wines in each vintage, many of them sold directly at the winery. These four offerings represent the core of the estate's production.

2015 Brewer-Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay Top Pick!
2015 Brewer-Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills checks in as a blend of the 3D, Acin and Machado Vineyards, and it’s brought up identically to the single vineyards. In addition, there’s really no barrel selection made, so don’t think of this cuvee as a second wine. Like the Hapgood, it’s a seriously rich, unctuous beauty that offers notes of buttered citrus rind, candied lemons, honeycomb and hints of minerality. Deep, rich and thrillingly textured, it’s certainly the smart value play of the lineup as it’s half the price, but more than half the wine. (JebDunnuck.com ...Read More »

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. Black olives, pepper, gamey meats and both kirsch and blacker fruits all emerge from this elegant, se ...Read More »

2014 Talley "Estate" Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Vinous: "(aged for 14 months in French oak, 26 percent of it new): Brilliant ruby-red. Highly fragrant, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves and floral pastilles; a hint of vanilla emerges with air. Expansive raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are energized and lifted by juicy acidity and a late jolt of white pepper. Packs a solid punch but comes off lithe, finishing with excellent focus, well-knit tannins and strong persistence.

2015 Margerum "M5" Santa Barbara County Rhône Blend

92 points Vinous: "The 2015 M5 is a delicious Grenache-based blend. Sweet floral notes, expressive red berries, tobacco, herbs and licorice add nuance, but it is the wine's silkiness and polish that stand out most. Without filtering, the wine would probably have a bit more textural richness. Even so, this is nicely done. (AG)" (9/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 M5 checks in as a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Cinsault that was had each of the varieties aged separately in mostly neutral barrels. It has a lively, elegant style as well as classic notes of raspberries, crushed ...Read More »

This is another hugely appealing, exuberant wine from Gainey. Gainey makes as many as twenty different wines in each vintage, many of them sold directly at the winery. These four offerings represent the core of the estate's production. Once again, I was quite impressed with what I tasted.

This is a classic Santa Maria Chardonnay built on energy and tension. (AG)" (6/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The aromas are restrained and mellow in this bottling from winemaker Tyler Thomas, showing mostly yellow apple and citrus peel notes. The palate is racy, high-toned and steely in structure, framed by a razor-sharp edge of zippy acidity, with only faint background notes of ripe stonefruit. (MK) ...Read More »

2014 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah

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.

2016 Tatomer "Meeresboden" Santa Barbara County Grüner Veltliner

92 points Vinous: "The 2016 Grüner Veltliner Meeresboden is intensely stony and mineral, with a real sense of phenolic drive that underpins the varietal fruit. Far from an easygoing white, the Meeresboden is going to need at least a year or two to show at its best. In 2016, the Meeresboden is a real overachiever. Picking this fruit across a range of dates helped achieve notable complexity and nuance. (AG)" (9/2017)

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)

The palate shows chai and Indian spice-accents to the cranberry fruit that rides a fine line between ripe and tart. Although light in body, the tannic structure is firm enough to cellar for decades. Drink now-2033." (8/2017) 95 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Knox Alexander is bright, focused and beautifully delineated.

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 »

There’s a kick of tannin, yet ripe and polished. Give bottles a year or two and drink through 2024. This Santa Maria estate is run with incredible talent and passion by Bill Wathen and Dick Doré, who have been making wine together since 1985.

2014 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is rich and powerful in the glass, yet also shows good energy and overall translucence, especially for such an ample, broad-shouldered wine. Orange blossom, mint, spice and butter are front and center. With time in the glass, more tropically-leaning notes begin to develop. This, too, is, very nicely done. It will be interesting to see how things develop at Melville now that Chad Melville has taken over winemaking from Greg Brewer.

92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Roussanne L'Avion is very beautiful and subtle, with striking varietal character and nuance, but no excess heaviness. Apricot, peach, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes are pushed forward in this delicious, super-expressive Viognier from Stolpman. With time in the glass, the wine gains in precision and focus. This is very nicely done. (AG)" (9/2017) Jeb Dunnuck: "A deeper gold color and obviously hazy, the 2015 L'Avion was completely barrel fermented and I suspect bottled unfiltered.

2015 Belle Glos "Clark & Telephone" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

Wine Spectator: "Notable for the distinctive edge of sassafras and cherry cola, driven by oak and rich flavors that are pure, focused and persistent, this ends with oak and berry elements hand in hand. Drink now through 2023. (JL, Web-2017)" K&L Notes: Belle Glos is the project of Joseph Wagner, son of Caymus winemaker Chuck Wagner of "Special Selection" Cabernet fame.
