Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2018

Just tried a third bottle over past 6 months. A light style Pinot, something I would find from OR, not Santa Barbara, however this bottle was a bit more pronounced in aromas and flavors. Medium Ruby with aromas of red fruits and spice. On the palate ripe raspberry and wild juicy cherry with cola, oak and earthy notes. Developing with integrated soft tannins, well defined, elegant with underlying richness, long finish ending with flinty mineral character. Outstanding value! — 4 days ago

Bar-M Vineyard Chardonnay 2009

Delectable Wine
9.1

Diatom’s 2009 Chardonnay Bar-M, from vineyards in Los Alamos, is a gorgeous wine and a fabulous value. Tangerine oil, white flowers and light tropical accents give this curvy, airy Santa Barbara Chardonnay so much appeal. Breezy saline notes linger on the wonderfully inviting finish. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020) — 15 days ago

Santa Barbara County Rosé Grenache Syrah 2019

This bottle was left at my birthday picnic, so we took it home not thinking much of it.

Roses, gummy bears, and strawberries.

Wow, unexpectedly great. Always a wonderful feeling when you’re not expecting anything.

Blood oranges flirt with rose petals, and threesome with grapefruit gummy bears to make a tart, refreshing, savory, and slightly pleasingly astringent autumn wine.

Huntington Pinot Noir 2016

This is comfort food Pinot. I paired tonight’s bottle with homemade chicken and biscuits veggie pie. Heaven! Perfect cool climate cherry forward wine with foresty flooriness. Also married well with the truffle Brie appetizer. Fall season delight! — 21 hours ago

To much FOMO from looking at @Paul T- Huntington Beach ‘s Korean short rib posts so had to order my own. To young, but the wine will be an absolute rockstar in a few years. — 13 days ago

Watch Hill Vineyard Grenache 2017

A food-loving Grenache from CA—yay! Plenty of cran-ripe acid. Lighter on the spice, higher on the acid. Grilled veggies, charred tomatoes and bell peppers, and a nice Italian Beyond sausage: just what this glass calls for! — a day ago

Finally got our couch! And our coffee table lesgoooo!

Sage leaf, orange zest, honey in the bouquet. And a little funk.

Wow. Zing! Karpow! Boom! I call this a comic book wine because it literally jumps off the page and into your taste buds.

Not bad at all. Thanks NYT.

Sandlands

San Benito County Mataro 2015

Opened two bottles of the 2015 back to back. So good. By far my favorite Sandlands wine to date. I was starting to develop the view that they excelled on the whites and the reds were sort of basic, but this one really impressed me. It was a little sharp straight out of the bottle but was especially excellent on day two. Good structure, layered berry notes, appreciable tannins. Yay! — 8 days ago
