Santa Barbara Winery

Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2018

Great value. This winery is always a solid choice for great value entry level wines. At $13, this would easily be double if it was from another area. — 24 days ago

Los Alamos Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

This way over-delivers. Cranberry, black tea, bergamot, tobacco, camphor, dried mushrooms and a distinct loaminess. Perhaps a tad austere for the average bloke, with some elevated VA to boot. But this is a rather serious Pinot Noir with plenty of potential for extensive aging. I’m getting decidedly Old World vibes. — 23 days ago

Cobolorum Kick On Ranch Petillant Naturel Santa Barbara County Riesling 2020

2020 was the first disgorged vintage. So no explosions with this one 😅. Citrus and ripe pear. Not the zippy acid of as past vintages, a bit rounder maybe a little sweeter compared to past vintages (this is not a sweet wine though.) — a day ago


Sybarite Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Outstanding value. This is acidic and tropical. Huge amount of flavor with some stone fruit, tart apple, not much grass at all, but well balanced. Margerum’s wines were some of my first in exploring SB terroir and this one reminds me of the excellence he had at wine cask. — 14 days ago

Koukou Crown Point Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2019

Hint of smoke….bitter(ish) fruit that works well…I enjoy the fact that this is a wine to drink at leisure.
