Sea Smoke

Southing Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2015

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Sea Smoke and for good reason. Well made for sure just too over the top for me now — 18 days ago

Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2018

On with ABC. Five year old chard this time. Not as crisp as it’s younger counterparts and aging a little better than expected. There’s exuberant pineapple on the nose, palate, and finish, somehow it works… Not overpowering but refreshing, like pineapple shaved iced from childhood… High acidity, medium alcohol, slightly oaky and beginning to show sings of integration. Cheers. — 3 months ago

Santa Barbara Highlands Grenache 2020

375. Feminine. Nice length. Good purity. Has a candied/confectionary note that’s surprisingly pleasant. Fruit forward and pretty. Best at cellar temp. // Edit: paired this with roasted beets and fancy balsamic and GOTTDAMN — a month ago

PS Santa Barbara County Syrah 2016

One of the best new world syrahs I’ve ever had. Old world savory stem, peppercorn and violets with the amplifier cranked up by a notch or two on the ripe, glossy blackberry and raspberry fruit component. Abundant freshness and tannic structure to frame the opulent fruit — a month ago

Man, I have had mind blowing wines from them and really mediocre wines. Glad you found a good one!
