A little bit too much. I wouldn’t drink a whole bottle and for me that’s the telltale. #sbcountywines #sbcounty #calichard — 2 years ago

August Red Santa Ynez Valley Syrah Grenache 2015

MICHAEL COOPER
9.0

The flavours and aromas are a strange blend between #châteauneuf and #calipinot for me. Medium+ intensity of aromas. Blood, garrigue and sagebrush. Citrus and red currant. It has surprisingly tangy acidity and yet lacks the polished and balanced finish one would expect for the price of this wine. It also lacks mid palate weight/concentration. I’m not familiar with the vineyard, but it seems like the winemaker wanted to control the alcohol and the ripeness of #santaynezvalley and either harvested early or directly added water. The finish is long #gsm #blend #californianwine #sbcounty #sbcountywines — 7 months ago

Rodney's Vineyard Dry Riesling 2013

8.9

#Riesling is a grape I wouldn't particularly believe well suited to #sbcounty and would imagine difficult and resistant to a hot Mediterranean climate like ours. This wine was very interesting and enjoyable and a more than just noble attempt at a Riesling. It was very good — 4 years ago

Very interesting white wine from #sbcounty I was expecting high alcohol and thickness and I discovered balance and good natural acidity and a intricate wine. — 4 years ago
