Nice crisp stone fruit (apricot and white peach) aromas and flavors and a touch of tangerine. #losolivos #sbcountywines #sbcounty #santabarbaracounty #santabarbara #grenacheblanc #garnachablanca #picpoul #viognier #marsanne #roussanne — a year ago

"My Friend Matt's Vineyard" Los Olivos District Syrah 2017

8.7

There are a lot of seriously amazing #syrah that is coming out of #sbcounty from #santamariavalley and #staritahills like #storm #dragonette and #holusbolus #zotovich yet this seems like an antithesis to what I love about those wines. This smells and tastes like chocolate milk on acid. Where’s the crushed pepper? Where’s the rich black fruit and herbs? Reminds me of the Wendy’s commercial “where’s the meat?” For me the oak isn’t noble. Seems like staves or chips. This is a 2017 it should be showing complexity and tertiary but it’s just one-dimension fruity raspberries, milk chocolate and acid. Not my thing #losolivos #overrated — 2 years ago

Saarloos & Sons

Extended Family Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

Not sure what to think about this one. My friend liked it. I on the other hand did enjoy it as much. Seemed to me to be sort of a creamy fruit forward Pinot. It may have been because this was a second bottle of the night my palate was off a bit. Normally I love this producer so I will revisit and see if anything changes. #saarloosandsons #staritahills #losolivos #pinotnoir #winestagram #california #centralcoastwine — 4 years ago

Big Brother Grenache Noir 2013

I tried a new wine which was the 2013 Saarloos and Sons Big Brother Grenache Noir. Wine is like your real life family, some you love, some you tolerate and........well some you don't want to mention. The Big Brother Grenache Noir is like that distant cousin you just met that you wish was your sibling. Upon opening this up to breathe I was greeted with licorice and spice and to me a touch of earth. Once I drank it I was greeted with velvety touches of tobacco, pepper, dark cherries and well balanced acid and tannins. This wine lingered on the palate like a good family memory should. Not knowing what to expect I was very pleasantly surprised with this wine. It will be added to my wines for my family's gatherings and wine times. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I did. #saarloosandsons #windmillranch #losolivos #ballardcanyon #grenachenoir — 7 years ago
