Happy Canyon Of Santa Barbara, Central Coast

Stolpman Vineyards

Combe Pet' Nat Ballard Canyon Trousseau 2019

Bone dry, yeasty and a great showcase of Trousseau grapes. Not very sweet but lingers nicely after each sip. Lovely effervescence reminiscent of a champagne. A slight hint of apple on the nose and some earthyness on the finish. — 15 days ago

Gainey Vineyard

Santa Barbara County Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Medium ruby hue with high saturation. Aromas of cola, raspberry, sage, strawberry, and vanilla. Medium body, with medium tannins and medium-plus acidity. Silky mouthfeel, though the finish remains a bit oaky and tannic. A worthwhile, highly quaffable Santa Barbara Pinot. — 16 days ago

Herman Story

Tomboy White Viognier 2019

Pale gold; medium plus intensity aromas of fresh nectarine, canned peaches in syrup, pineapple, mango, rose petals, intense vanilla, cream, cedar, toast; off dry, medium minus acid, high alcohol, full body, pronounced intensity flavors consistent with aromas; this is a big, thick, ripe wine; decadent in its flavors and new oak treatment; delicious, but drink sparingly (very high alcohol) — a month ago

Belle Glos

Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

This is a nice Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara.

Showing black fruits with tobacco, earth, wood, vanilla, chocolates, barnyard, smoke, spices, coffee and mocha.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate and very fruity.

Tangy finish with soft tannins.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show the complexity.

Drinks more like a Syrah blend from California. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. After 3 hours in the decanter, it really feels like a Syrah.

This 5 year old is peaking now.

Aged in French oak barrels for 9 months.

14.7% alcohol by volume.

91 points.
