2021 Syrah, Santa Barbara County

This a deeply colored Syrah that demands your attention. 2021 was an outstanding, balanced vintage, with great weather during the growing season. Sourced from a few local vineyards, the wine is mostly Syrah with just a touch of Grenache thrown in. The various lots were fermented separately in small open top fermenters with manual punch downs twice daily. Aging was done in mostly neutral French oak barrels for about 12 months before bottling. The wine has gobs of crushed berry fruit with a distinct spice character. The acid is bright but will soften with time. Enjoy with barbecued ribs and oak grilled pork chops. $45.00


2020 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County

This is creamy, silky Chardonnay with flavors of apple, citrus, and a touch of nutmeg and vanilla from the oak. The fruit was sourced from local vineyards including Los Alamos. The grapes were carefully handpicked and sorted in the vineyard. After harvesting, the grapes are whole cluster pressed, and juice is quickly settled and chilled to begin barrel fermentation. Malo-lactic fermentation was completed and the wine aged in somewhat neutral French oak barrels for about 12 months. It is a food friendly Chardonnay that is refined and subtle. $45.00

2018 Pinot Gris, Santa Barbara County

Our crisp Pinot Gris is picked with low sugar and high acidity. The fruit is harvested by hand, whole-cluster pressed and barrel-fermented in neutral French oak. Upon completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the wine is sulfured and rests surlees. The brisk acidity of the Pinot Gris was softened by malo-lactic fermentation. This secondary fermentation gives the wine some richness. The wine was aged a brief time in barrel, about 6 months, before bottling. This is a fruit forward wine with structure. The combination makes for food friendly wines. A crowd pleaser. Bottle Price: $35.00

2021 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County


From Santa Maria Valley (Bien Nacido) and Los Alamos (Kick-On and Los Alamos Vineyard) fruit, this Pinot has the best of both worlds. Santa Maria provides the cranberry/cherry fruit notes with sage and spice overtones in the nose that carries through to the palate. Los Alamos increases the richness and depth. The wine was fermented and aged for about 10 months in French oak barrels. Beautiful now and will continue to develop for years to me. Bottle price: $45.00
