2013 Fossil Point Edna Valley Pinot Noir

From the winery website, "When we say Fossil Point rocks - we mean it! Calcareous shale and coarse sand were uplifted from the floor of an ancient ocean and then weathered into place over millennia. It became a place of deep beauty and vast potential. Fossil Point is a rugged headland with sweeping views of the coastline stretching from Port San Luis to the Guadalupe Dunes. The Point is just five miles due west of the vineyards that are its namesake. Sunny afternoons are cooled by marine breezes sweeping off the Pacific Ocean, along Fossil Point to the v...

2013 Qupé "Bien Nacido - Y Block" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

Qupe should be on the radar of any California Chardonnay drinker who is interested in a wine with moderate alcohol and loads of character. Y Block is one of the older Chardonnay blocks at Bien Nacido. It’s located on the gravelly river banks of the Cuyama River, just opposite the winery. Qupé is the only winery that gets these grapes. Lucky for them (and for us), because this fruit-forward, though balanced Chard is wonderfully tasty and a considerable value, too!

2014 Kalinda Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc

We can tell you this much: our Kalinda private label hooks you up with awesome wine at a fraction of what you'd otherwise pay for this exact same wine under its normal label. While we have to remain quiet about the source of this beauty, we can tell you that it sells elsewhere under the winery label at a much higher premium. Get it while it lasts.

2010 Zaca Mesa Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The first winery to plant Syrah in the county continues to produce powerful but layered expressions. This delivers rich aromas of cherry, stewed plum and blackberry alongside sage and a wisp of vanilla. On the palate, it starts rich, until bright acidity and tannins bring balance amidst mocha and blackberry jam flavors and an oak-powered vanilla finish." (2/2015)

2013 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

Candied lemon, white flowers, almonds and chamomile add shades of nuance as the 2013 opens up in the glass.

Black cherry, plum, spice, menthol and licorice blossom into the supple, deeply expressive finish. The 2013 is a bit more Syrah-heavy than in some previous years, which contributes to its personality. Best of all, the 2013 is an absolute steal.

The style is bold and intense, with considerable up-front fruit and terrific overall balance. Once again, the Tous Les Jours delivers superb quality and value." (06/2015)

It was 70% destemmed and aged 10 months in neutral oak. It reveals terrific notes of cassis, peppered meats, blackberries, licorice and wood smoke to go with a full-bodied, ripe, yet beautifully balanced and layered feel on the palate.

2014 Brander Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Vinous: "The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley is laced with lemon peel, white flowers, sage and chamomile, all in a crisp, medium-bodied Sauvignon that offers lovely aromatic presence from a bit of the Musque clone, pliant fruit and terrific overall balance. The 2014 was made from an assortment of vineyards and aged in steel, with a touch of oak (5%) for added texture. This is a superb value from Brander. Brander is one of the historic wineries in the Santa Ynez Valley. The estate vineyard is located in Los Olivos, which is generally better suited to Rhône ...Read More »

2013 Talley "Estate" Arroyo Grande Chardonnay

From the winery: "Pale straw in color, this vintage of Talley Vineyards Estate Chardonnay has aromas of grilled nuts, honeysuckle, and lemon oil. Citrus notes of lemon curd and lime zest characterize this refreshing medium bodied chardonnay. The wine finishes clean with hints of minerality and crushed stone. Enjoy this wine with fresh swordfish or sautéed sea scallops."

2013 Palmina Santa Barbara County Dolcetto

Vinous: "Palmina's 2013 Dolcetto is soft, open and accessible, with plenty of bright flavors to match its vinous, inviting personality. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and tobacco abound in a pretty wine to drink now and over the next year or two. From top to bottom, this is a compelling set of new releases from Steve and Chrystal Clifton at Palmina. In addition to the current releases, the Cliftons poured two 2005 Nebbiolos, both of which were impressive. Although all of these wines are delicious, if there is one wine that delivers an especially compelling mix of ...Read More »

2013 Foxen "Bien Nacido Vineyard-Block 8" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An incredible, profound Pinot Noir, Foxen's 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 8 was completely destemmed and aged 17 months in 50% new French oak. Its deep ruby color is followed by sensational notes of sweet cherries, black raspberries, crushed flowers and a touch of licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multi-dimensional, with seamless texture, this is California Pinot Noir at its finest. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years. (JD)" (8/2015) 93 points Vinous: "A powerful, structured wine, the 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 8 is literally b ...Read More »

2014 Stephen Ross Edna Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Steve Dooley's entry-level bottling invites the nose with deep and dark black cherry, grape soda and even blueberry aromas, leveled by a hint of ethereal roasted game and dried sage. The purple note holds into the palate, which shows lavender and other potpourri elements. Editors's Choice. -M.K. abv: 13.5%." K&L Notes: This is an absolute steal! It doesn't say it on the label, but this is 100% Stone Corral Vineyard Fruit, their estate vineyard, which will usually run you between $40-65 a bottle. Stone Corral vineyard is east ...
