Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2016

After Jim Clendenen graduated with a pre-law degree in ’76, he was assistant winemaker at Zaca Mesa Winery for the 1978 harvest, and in 1981 he pulled a “triathlon” and handled three harvests in one year as Jim worked crush and directed the harvest at wineries in Australia and France. Small crop, early ripening with concentrated fruit, aromas of tropical fruits and toasty notes. On the palate fresh pineapple and pear with oak tones, a bit creamy, almost buttery, a bit overdone, but still a good value. Medium finish with a round mouthfeel and bits of mineral on the ending. Tasting Sample. — 5 days ago

Huntington Pinot Noir 2015

Warmth of Santa Barbara with that beach cool finish. Heated Oaked berry forward with mineral qualities that reminisce sea salt air and stainless contact. I love love love this wine. — 15 days ago

Especial Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard Mourvèdre 2018

Light, sprightly, and tasty. Chill this down and crush it by the water glassfull. Raspberry, boysenberry, and cranberry juice notes...simple, but ultimately satisfying with smoked pork loin. I understand the criticism on wines like this, but I’m happy with the option for different levels of concentration or intensity. Simply put, a fun food wine perfect for some March Madness. — 20 days ago

Misfit Syrah Blend 2015

Always a proprietary blend, in 2015 winemaker Mattias Pippig has composed the 'Misfit' using Syrah with Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Petite Syrah and Viognier. Inky and dense in the glass, the wine slowly yields intense aromas of mocha, Asian spice, crème de cassis and damp earth aromatics that all build in the glass. The palate shows sensational weight and texture, while the Viognier adds some floral tones on the mid-palate. Dense dark fruits connect with coffee grounds and creosote flavors as it displays a sensational combination of weight and poise. An absolutely fabulous wine, this should continue to evolve beautifully for over a decade. Drink 2019-2035- 94 — 10 days ago

Crawford Family

Santa Barbara County Albariño 2017

Light green tints in color, touch of grass on the nose. Medium weight with crisp acidity being the first impact... clean, lifted notes of citrus ( primarily key lime). Nice weight in the mid-palate, with some tartness snd salinity on the finish. Thirst quenching and vibrant on the finish, this wine sings with food. — 7 days ago
