2016 Byron "Nielson Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $40) (Elsewhere $40)
Top Pick!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chardonnay vines in the Nielson vineyard were originally planted in 1964; this wine comes from those cuttings used to replant. Youthfully shy on the nose, the 2016 Chardonnay Nielson Vineyard opens very minerally with aromas of saline, crushed shell, gunflint and toast with ripe Golden Delicious apple, baked quince, warm Meyer lemon, pie crust and peach. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rounded and silky, oozing layer after layer of ripe, savory, spicy fruits, framed with tangy acidity and finishing very long...

2017 Brewer-Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the great values out there, the 2017 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills offers thrilling notes of white flowers, white peach, currants, and toasted bread. This ripe, sexy wine is unquestionably at the same level as the more expensive single vineyard releases, and it will evolve for just as long. This was another thrilling lineup from Greg Brewer, and I consistently rate these wines as some of the greatest in the Sta. Rita Hills, as well as all of Santa Barbara County. In addition to the latest releases, I was also able to taste re...

2017 Sea Smoke "Ten" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
Winemaker notes: "Hand-harvested, clusters were sorted in the vineyard and then gently destemmed following an evening in our cold room. All ‘jack stems’ were removed on the sorting table. Musts were cold soaked in open-top fermenters for five days, and then inoculated with cultured yeasts to begin slow fermentation. Each tank was manually punched down two times per day, with a total maceration time of sixteen to twenty-eight days. Upon completion of primary fermentation and maceration, all free run wine was transferred to tank for settling, and then pres...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What's becoming the flagship Syrah for the estate, the 2013 Syrah Originals Estate comes from the original planting of the estate from 1992. It offers more texture, depth, richness and elegance over the Estate Syrah and possesses beautiful notes of creme de cassis, barbecue smoke, crushed pepper and violets. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and textured, yet always pure and balanced, it will have a decade of longevity. (JD)" (06/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2013 Syrah Originals is developing into a highly appealing ...

2017 Diatom "Katherine's" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay
Top Pick!
94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from the Santa Maria Valley (this label is by and large focused on the Sta. Rita Hills), the 2017 Chardonnay Katherine’s just jumps from the glass with a perfumed, tropical bouquet of ripe citrus, spice, dried pineapple, and mango notes. Showing more and more classic salinity and oyster shell characteristics with time in the glass, it’s medium-bodied, has bright acidity, a layered, viscous texture, and a beautiful finish. It’s going to evolve for 8-10 years at a minimum. " (10/2018) 94 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chardonnay ...

Vinous: "The 2014 Red is absolutely delicious. Red berry, herb, licorice, smoke, menthol and dark spice notes all flesh out in the glass. Pliant and super-inviting, the 2014 is going to be irresistible upon release. I can't think of too many California Cabernets that deliver this much quality and pure pleasure for the money. Drinking Window: 2017-2023 (AG)" (09/2017) K&L Notes: Made from the vineyard blocks that are either too young or don't fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed Jonata wines. The 2014 red blend is of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon...

2017 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah
Top Pick!
94 points Decanter: "In 2017, the Estate Syrah from Stolpman Vineyards is lively on the nose, deep and concentrated on the palate, and immediately accessible. 50% whole cluster fermentation, aged in 500L neutral barrels, and contains 2% Viognier. Aromas of wet violets, roasted blackberries and lavender. The palate is juicy and fresh with notes of boysenberry and blackberries. The finish brings one back for more, and the wine is remarkably tucked into place even at this early stage. Drinking Window 2019-2035. (ML)" (08/2019) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "...

2016 Talley "Estate" Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
92 points Vinous: "Lurid red. Spice-accented raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by hints of cola, candied rose and smoky mineral notes. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering lively red berry flavors and suggestions of floral pastilles and blood orange that emerge with aeration. Nicely concentrated but vibrant and precise in style, delivering solid closing thrust, while smooth tannins lend shape to the long, spice-accented finish. This wine is composed of 65% Rincon and 35% Rosemary's fruit and, like the Chardonnay, it's extremely impressive...

92 points Vinous: "Light bright yellow. Pungent, mineral- and spice-tinged citrus and pit fruit aromas show excellent clarity and a sexy floral overtone. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering vibrant Meyer lemon, pear and honeysuckle flavors and a sneaky touch of fennel. Finishes tangy and long, showing excellent clarity and a recurring mineral note. (JR)" (01/2019) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This appellation blend is a very down-the-middle style of classic California Chardonnay, with ample amounts of oak, butter, baked lemon and ripe apple on the...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Candied red cherries, concentrated rosewater and riper cola aromas show on the nose of this bottling, which is quite young and needs time to evolve. The palate's tannic edge is really firm right now, but will keep the flavors of plump red fruit and star anise fresh for a long time. (MK)" (08/2019) K&L Notes: Over 20 years ago, founding partner Thomas Stolpman discovered what they believe to be one of the greatest viticultural sites on earth. Hidden in the hills of California’s Central Coast, on a rare limestone outcropping &...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep ruby-purple, the 2017 Para Maria de las Tecolotes has an inviting nose of crushed blueberries, red cherries, wild blackberries and red berry preserves with violet, charcuterie, spice and potpourri nuances. The medium-bodied palate is energetic and offers perfumed, tricolored fruits, with a frame of gently chewy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long with lots of perfume. This will be a crowd-pleaser with its easy, Côtes-du-Rhone style. 4,400 cases produced. (EB)" (09/2019) 91 points Vinous: ...


94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The first vintage for this cuvée it was created with the idea to improve the quality of the single vineyard. The 2015 Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley is a stunning value that offers classic buttered stone fruits, toasted nuts and honeysuckle in a rich, texture, balanced style. It way over delivers at the price and is a terrific wine. It’s one of the larger production releases as well (536 cases), so hopefully you can find a few bottles." (08/2017) K&L Notes: Peake Ranch Winery is only a few vintages in, but already they're on to s...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage, Jim Binns’ 2014 Andremily No 3 is a blend of 89% Syrah, 8% Mourvèdre and 3% Viognier that comes from three great sites in Santa Barbara County: Larner Vineyard, White Hawk and Alta Mesa (Mourvèdre). Tasted twice, this totally profound beauty offers up heavenly notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, smoked meats, graphite and ample minerality in a full-bodied, expansive, yet pure, elegant and lengthy style. It needs to be forgotten for 2-3 years, and will have 15 years or more of...

2018 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah
Top Pick!
96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The deepest colored Syrah in the lineup, the 2018 Syrah Colson Canyon comes from a great vineyard located in the hills above the town of Los Olivos. Awesome notes of blackberries, toasted spice (there's some new oak in this wine), ground herbs, peppered meat, and earth all flow to a full-bodied, concentrated, deep, layered wine that has plenty of tannins, good acidity, and a huge finish. It's a magical Syrah from Tensely, and my money is on it being the finest to date." (10/2019) K&L Notes: Winery notes: Established in 1998, ...

Price: $24.95

92 points Vinous: "Lurid red. Candied red fruits, musky flowers and a hint of vanilla on the spice-accented nose. Juicy, energetic raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors slowly turn sweeter with air. Very nicely concentrated, but this Pinot is distinctly lithe in character, with no rough edges and silky tannins framing a long, red-fruit-dominated finish. (JR)" (01/2019) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Seafarer is outstanding. Brought up in 30% new French oak, it offers a medium ruby color as well as complex notes of cedary spice, un...

2015 Calera "Bien Nacido Vineyard - 40th Anniversary Edition" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $36) (Elsewhere $36)
Top Pick!
91 points Vinous: "An addition to the range, the 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido is a very pretty wine. Succulent peach, lemon confit, chamomile, orange peel and lightly buttered note all flesh out in the glass. The 2015 is an especially gracious expression of this famed Santa Maria site. (AG)" (08/2017) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard from Calera is an exuberant Chardonnay that gives up loads of buttered orchard fruits, honeysuckle, and brioche-like aromas and flavors. These carry over to the palate, where the wine is rich...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling from a coveted vineyard offers a little bit of everything for the Chardonnay lover. The nose begins with aromas of candied lime, tangerine pith, golden butter and cashew cream. The palate continues with toasted hazelnut, fresh lemon and then a crème brûlée finish, yet it's all wrapped in searing acidity and a chalky mouthfeel. (MK)" (11/2019) 93 points Vinous: "Light bright yellow. Expansive, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by suggestions of white flowers, toasty lees and sweet ...

90 points Vinous: "The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc McGinley Vineyard is quite soft in this vintage, with a lovely interplay between varietal fruit character and the soft curves that make the wine such a delight to taste now. Candied lemon, orchard fruit, white flower, chamomile and almond all grace a very pretty and expressive wine that emphasizes fruit over the green/grassy notes that are typical of many Sauvignon Blancs. (AG)" (09/2018)

Winemaker's Notes: "Composition: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 16% Syrah. A phenomenal value, this juicy red blend is approachable and rewarding. The dark ruby color has a nose of ripe berries. Fine-grained tannins with piquant acidity creates a structure which allows this wine to pair with a wide range of flavors: think of pairing this with homemade ravioli stuffed with Gorgonzola and fresh sage in a sauce of roasted heirloom tomatoes and garlic. Vineyard Sources: Los Olivos Vineyard (Estate): Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet...

91 points Vinous: "Lemon peel, tangerine, flowers and chamomile all grace the exquisite, creamy, vivid 2017 Chardonnay from J. Wilkes. Beautifully layered yet also light on its feet, with tons of Santa Maria character, the 2017 is a winner. Best of all, this absolutely delicious Chardonnay is a remarkable value. (AG)" (10/2019) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lime peel, green pear, lemongrass and wet river stone combine for an inviting and complex nose. There is strong chalky tension to the palate, where a flavor of Key lime pie is wrapped in bright acid. ...

92 points Vinous: "Tyler's 2017 Chardonnay (Santa Barbara County) is bright, precise and wonderfully nuanced from start to finish. White flowers, chalk, mint, white pepper and citrus give the 2017 striking detail and class. Aging in 500-liter barrels helps maintain vibrancy and tension. Once again, the appellation Chardonnay is a real overachiever.

Its ruby/plum color gives way to a great nose of blackberries, ground pepper, herbes de Provence, and licorice. Medium-bodied, with plenty of fruit and good balance, it’s California's answer to an outstanding Côtes du Rhône."

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Block UU comes from a great vineyard located just east of the town of Santa Maria and was brought up in 20% new French oak. A classic Bien Nacido bouquet of honeyed orchard fruits, crushed rocks, oyster shells, and white flowers flow to a rich, beautifully textured, concentrated Chardonnay that has everything you could want from this variety. With terrific balance, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish, it's brilliant stuff that should evolve gracefully for 5-7 years." (10/2018) 92 points ...

2016 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

Freshly cut flowers, spice, mint, blood orange and dried flowers give the Estate beguiling aromatic complexity and nuance.

This carries to a medium-bodied, ethereal, elegant Pinot Noir that has no hard edges, nicely integrated acidity, and beautiful overall balance." (10/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling by Matt Dees of Jonata and The Hilt fame is a great way to see what he's up to for a very affordable price. Aromas of dark red cherry and cranberry meet with dried tarragon on the nose. The palate's clean lines of black raspberry and wild cherry pick up soil-driven flavors of crushed gravel and a hint of sandalwood. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (06/2019) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From declassified The Hilt lots and raised in a mix of new and neutral oak, the 2016 Pinot Noir is a deeply colored effort that has subtle o...

90-92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Cabernet Franc Sans Soufre is insanely beautiful. Rich, vivid and explosive, with tons of fruit density and aromatic depth, the 2017 is captivating from the very first taste. A rush of dark cherry, mocha, spice, new leather and menthol hits the palate in a deeply satisfying, alluring Cabernet Franc. It's hard to say how the no SO2 bottling will age, but the wine is undeniably beautiful at this stage. The fruit was sourced from Happy Canyon Vineyard.

2017 Siduri Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Winemaker Adam Lee's first crack at a Santa Barbara County blend is a hit, and he plays in the lighter end of the Pinot Noir spectrum as well. Aromas of crushed slate, red cherry and rose petals lead into a bouncy palate that's tart in flavors of pomegranate and raspberry. *Editors' Choice* (MK) " (05/2019)

Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe apple, nectarine and lime-peel aromas make for a very accessible nose on this bottling. There is compelling tension to the palate, where bright citrusy and yellow-apple flavors get a white pepper lift and ride on fresh acidity. It's a great white wine for many occasions. (MK)" (03/2019) K&L Notes: This lovely Pinot Blanc has subtle melon aromas combined with fresh white peach and lemon zest.

Winery notes: We knew that the 2015 Golden Slope was going to be a hard act to follow, but once again the Sta. Rita Hills reminded us why it is (in our opinion) one of the best places on the planet for Chardonnay. Notes of toasted marcona almonds, lemon sorbet, and river rocks leap out of the glass followed by subtle hints of burnt marshmallow, brioche, and vanilla. This vintage is a great example of why we have endearingly nicknamed this wine the "Goldilox" Chardonnay.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Plump red cherry, rust, dried sage, wild thyme and baking spices show on the nose of this top-end regional wine from Bill Foley. The palate shows cohesive well-woven flavors of strong red fruits, turned earth, brown spice, cracked pepper and a menthol-like finish. The acidity is perfect, the tannins soft but structural. (MK)" (02/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale ruby, the 2016 Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley offers concentrated red and black cherries, cola, woodsmoke and earth on the nose with cranberry, rhubarb and dried leaves hints.

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Extremely clean on the nose, pure aromas of lemon mousse, coconut milk and white peach are cut by a chalky minerality and fresh lemongrass scent in this bottling. There's a pencil shaving touch to the sip, which is a tad riper than expected, with mouth-watering lemon cake and cream flavors.

Rita Hills release, the 2017 Pinot Noir C'Est La Vie Drum Canyon Vineyard (15 months in 50% new French oak) is more spice-driven and pretty, with an incredibly balanced, layered, seamless style.

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Yes, even for a California Pinot, this is a big, strong, full-bodied wine. Southing always is. It could almost morph into a Cabernet Sauvignon. But who cares? It’s compellingly delicious, and isn’t that what wine is all about? Flavorwise, it tastes of cherries, oranges, red currants, violets, raspberries, cedar and peppery spices, with 65% new oak."

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "The fascinating nose of this bottling is driven by wet stone, yet it also touches on orange rinds, fresh chives, lemongrass balm and a nearly basil-like aromatic without the green spice. It's lively on the palate with flint and crushed stone, showing very fresh and acid-driven flavors of lemon and ash, riding a firm tension through the sip.

Sourced from throughout the Santa Barbara County and aged 18 months in 78% new barrels, it offers a big bouquet of tropical fruits, pineapple, apple blossom, white flowers, and hints of spice. It's pure, silky and elegant on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity as well as big finish.
