Lil Opal Farmhouse Ale 2016

Bottled 5/9/2016, Batch No. 002. No grapes in this brett’d saison, but the long aging in 70% French and 30% American oak results in big vinous character. — 6 months ago

Santa Ynez Valley Malbec 2014

Firestone is the oldest vineyard in Santa Barbara and thanks to Rosie, we had a really fun tasting experience here. We picked up this bottle because of the lush dark fruit rolled-in-baking-spice flavor, and the aftertaste that was pure American Spirit tobacco. — 4 years ago

Proximity Twenty Six Santa Ynez Valley Petit Verdot Blend

A nice, recent find. I'm usually not too much of a fan of Bordeaux blends from SB County but the 2013 vintage of this is nice. I don't think it has the holding power (read acidity or tannins) to last much longer before reaching its peak but what's there now is still pretty bold & fruit-forward. Had it with some slow-cooked pot roast & it paired quite nicely. — 4 years ago

Pierre á Feu Sauvignon 2019

“Pierre à Feu is sourced from Vincent's thirty year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines that are planted on the silex (flint and clay) soils that extend east from the Cher River. When I asked why he named the wine Pierre à Feu (French for "flint", or literally, "firestone"), Vincent smiled, "The name 'Silex' was already taken," [by Didier Dagueneau's estate, who produces a similar cuvée of Sauvignon grown on flint and clay; however, the cost of one bottle of Domaine Didier Dagueneau "Silex" is about the same as a six-pack of Domaine Ricard Pierre à Feu.]

In the glass, this shimmering pale yellow-gold Sauvignon Blanc reveals enticing aromas of white grapefruit, bergamot, lemon verbena, and gun smoke, along with apricot, green mango, sage and orange oil, as the nose evolves over time. On the palate, the wine is silky, polished, precise and persistent, with a fine core of yellow-green citrus and exotic fruit flavors that echo the nose, all seasoned with its namesake flinty minerality throughout a seemingly endless finish.” — Moore Brothers

Clone 174 Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

Firestone does a good job with Syrah. Deep and rich with dark fruit, earth/tobacco undertones and a bit of spice. It would be interesting to age this wine and see how it changes. — 3 years ago
