Villa Maria

Dolin Estate Wine

Solomon Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

A nose like a candied Apple, with hints of hazelnut.

Medium bodied and an explosion of flavor.
All of your classic red and blue berries, high and racy acidity. Long, lingering finish.
This wine has aged beautifully, and is drinking great right now. Perfect hot summertime PN.

Bien Nacido

Santa Maria Valley Syrah 2014

Inky ox blood color. Nose of dark berry, earth, white pepper. Mouth coating tannic structure with acidity down the side of your tongue. Pallet has this wet leaves, dirt, peppery quality with juicy dark fruit coming through. Almost like a black raspberry at first. This wine definitely has a few more years on it at least. — 14 days ago

Bien Nacido Hillside Estate Syrah

Tangy, leather raspberry smell, hot at first sip, but bite mixes with a body that strong but fresh/light in own way, grippy and consistent acid, leather and raspberries — 15 days ago

Not too young at all! But you could hold on to it for some time too... — 3 days ago

Nuits-Blanches au Bouge Chardonnay 2012

My opinion may illicit a sideways glance here but this is arguably one of the finest Chardonnays for the value in California. Drink or hold at 7 years young. There’s plenty of structure here for longevity. — 2 days ago

Nice @Neil Valenzuela ! The 2016 we release last year is probably my favorite vintage so far!

"Il Padrino" Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah 2014

Drinking great, captures what I often love in Santa Barbara Syrahs; CA sunshine in the fruit, generous without overbearing, balanced acids. Ripe black and blue fruit, almost liqueur-like, sweet spices, licorice whip, roasted coffee. Certainly NW in style but very well made. — 16 days ago

Right time to crack this bottle of 2005 Syrah. Paired great with bbq’d meats after being chilled slightly. All around good value for the quality. — 13 days ago
