2016 Varner "El Camino Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Chardonnay (Previously $25) (Previously $25)
Top Pick!
92 points Vinous: "Bob and Jim Varner's 2016 Chardonnay is terrific. Orchard fruit, white flowers, mint, tangerine oil and light tropical overtones infuse the 2016 with notable character. Los Alamos Chardonnays tend to be a bit more lifted, but there is plenty of depth here. Most of the wine was aged in large foudre, which further helps in retaining energy. (AG)" (09/2019) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lots of flinty minerality, crushed citrus, lime, and white flower notes emerge from the 2016 Chardonnay, which is racy and vibrant on the palate, with good ac...

Top Pick!
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard has a pale garnet color and a classic nose of woodsmoke, cranberries, Bing cherries, tree bark, dried citrus peel, pipe tobacco and dusty earth. In the mouth, it’s light-bodied and delicate with finely grained tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long and amaro-tinged. (EB)" (09/2019)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite of the Chardonnay releases is the 2018 Chardonnay 3D, and this beauty has everything you could want from a Sta. Rita Hills release. Medium gold-hued, with a stunning nose of stone fruits, white currants, crushed stone, toasted bread, and a hints of green almonds, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. It's one of the finest Chardonnays in this report." (08/2020) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chardonnay 3D is a stunni...

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 White Wine from Tenshen is made from a blend of Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Chardonnay sourced from sites throughout the Central Coast. Brought up mostly in neutral barrels, with a small part in stainless, it offers rich, full-bodied aromas and flavors of buttered peach, tangerine, honeysuckle and flowers. Richly textured, balanced and with a clean, dry finish, it’s a terrific white Rhône blend readers should check out."

2019 Tatomer "Hinter de Mauer" Central Coast White Blend
Top Pick!
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This unique, twist-top blend of 80% Grüner Veltliner and 20% Riesling is Graham Tatomer’s white table wine, and it begins with aromas of dried lime peels and rocky seashore. The palate also shows dried lime and orange peels, as well as unique flashes of white pepper and thyme.

2019 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Red Blend

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This extremely affordable blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Petit Verdot always impresses. Expertly captured aromas of berry juice, pepper and thyme are savory yet soft on the nose.

2013 Humanitas "Rio Vista Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
With almost eight years of age since the vintage date, this wine is absolutely singing in the glass. The fruit is still lush and full on the palate, but it is tempered by stunning savory notes of mushroom and forest floor. The acidity is still fresh and bright, making this a great food wine. This is a great example of how a fuller bodied Pinot can age gracefully and retain a beautiful balance if made well. Named after the Latin word for "philanthropy," Humanitas gives back to regional charitable institutions from their winery proceeds, with a focus on hu...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: " One of the few winemakers to tackle this Burgundian variety each vintage, Jim Clendenen presents aromas of dried lemon peel, yellow melon, light mint and a touch of savory wood on the nose of this bottling. The palate offers dried citrus and nut flavors, from Meyer lemon peel to cashew, with a beach-sand minerality. (MK)" (03/2021) K&L Notes: Thought you were savvy to some of the more obscure, "Burgundian" bottlings of California's Central Coast? Try Aligoté. Burgundian?

2018 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah
Top Pick!
94 points Vinous: "The 2018 Syrah Estate is a fabulous example of both the estate and everything Ballard Canyon is about. Fabulously deep and expansive, the Estate captures tremendous character. The flavors are dark, brooding and so rich. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice and dried herbs abound. The 50% whole clusters are nicely integrated, but the tannins are equally imposing, so a measure of patience is critical. All of the other Syrahs in this range are compelling, but to me the Estate is the most complete. It's a reference-point wine for the appella...

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The entry-level Syrah, the 2017 Syrah Tous Les Jours was brought up all in neutral barrels. Coming entirely from sites in the Santa Ynez Valley, it offers a deep ruby/plum color as well as a juicy bouquet of smoked black fruits, olives, sappy herbs, pepper, and scorched earth. Medium-bodied, juicy, balanced, and about as quaffable as they come, it's a no-brainer effort to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years."

Top Pick!
94 points Wine Enthusiast: "There's a purity of fruit and herb to Greg Brewer's style that shines through even on this appellation blend. Aromas of candied raspberry and strawberry pair with damp sage, pine oil and green peppercorn on the nose. The pristine palate's crisp pomegranate and fresh raspberry flavors are instantly cut by eucalyptus and green tobacco leaf. *Editor's Choice* (MK)" (09/2019) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Zesty and well-sculpted, with forest floor notes to the dried fruit and spice flavors.

93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc is one of the most expressive wines in the Lieu Dit range. Perfumed, generous and inviting, the 2017 has so much to offer. The Chenin emerges from Happy Canyon Vineyard, where the first Chenin was planted in an appellation that is better known for its Bordeaux varieties. Justin Willett fermented the 2017 in stainless steel and aged the wine in neutral oak.

Juicy dark red/purplish berry fruit, mint, lavender, spice and licorice notes are all pushed forward. Even with all of its fruit intensity, the 2018 retains terrific freshness and plenty of verve. It's the sort of wine that disappears in an instant at the dinner table.

Readers will have to be patient, as the 2018 is not at all forthcoming. This is an especially brooding, potent style.

Winemaker's Notes; "The 2019 takes its charms from the slightly richer vintage, and a relatively small crop. A touch of botrytis in 2019 also lends additional texture and presents a deceptively honeyed and pear-like expression of the variety. A suggestion of mandarin blossom and a resurgent, dry, almost electric finish recalls wet stone, and the quartz and limestone soils that help make this ungrafted Late Disco Era site next-level delicious. After harvest in the middle of the night, we let the fruit sit overnight and pressed the next day at lunchtime. A...
