9.1

Incredible how similar this seems to a Rioja! It has a little touch of mushrooms on the nose. Also medium+ intensity aromas of vanilla, cedar and toast. #staritahills #sbcountywines #sbcounty — 2 days ago

Dangerous Birds Sta. Rita Hills Syrah 2007

I need more of this in my life. Beautiful. This was a wine that I could just sit with for a long time. So much depth and complexity. So well balanced. First Saturday gathering. — 10 days ago

I’ve been on for about 6yrs myself. If you haven’t already, sign up for Andremily…no winery gets as close to SQN as they do. Often times I’ve found them to be just as good, if not better, at a better price point!

Thanks for that tip! I have a couple bottles that I have never opened. I will try one.

9.5

This 2012 is delicious it has a lot of dark red fruit and dark black fruit that’s with cherries so silky tannins and it’s just lovely to drink once it opens up there’s a little bit more tar and a little more mushrooms so I’d recommend if you have a 2012 vintage and your seller drink now or forever hold your peace — 9 days ago

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2020

Leading a tasting for some hotel guests. Different styles of Pinot Noir from around the world, starting with our own west coast. This wine features a core of explosive red fruits that define west coast Pinot making. Rich clove and and oak add a savoriness that helps to balance the wine. — 10 days ago
