Belle Glos "Las Alturas" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2013

93 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2014) "Highly Recommended - Spares no expense, with lavish smoky, black licorice-scented oak framing a rich core of dark berry, anise, boysenberry and savory herb notes. Full-blown and expressive through the persistent and mouthcoating finish. Drink now through 2024. 4,344 cases made."

Booker Vineyards "Oubile" Paso Robles Red Blend 2013

94 Wine Advocate
(8/2015) "The ruby/semi-opaque colored 2013 Oublie is a sensational blend of 46% Grenache, 34% Mourvedre and 20% Counoise that offers a seamless, layered and complex array of blueberry, black raspberry, dried flowers, vanilla bean and spice on the nose. Pure silk on the palate, with full-bodied richness and no hard edges, this impeccably balanced red has a full, layered mid-palate, sweet tannin and a terrific finish. One of those wines where the bottle's empty before you know it, drink this beauty over the coming 5-8 years. Drink: 2015 - 2023"

Herman Story Wines "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah 2013

96 Wine Advocate
(8/2016) "The 2013 Syrah Bien Nacido is silky, elegant and ethereally textured, with killer aromas and flavors of black olives, smoked game, black fruits and pepper. A textbook example of Syrah from this cool climate, marine-influenced site, drink this full-bodied, gorgeously fresh, pure and lengthy Syrah anytime over the coming decade. This was co-fermented with 3% Viognier and spent 24 months in 100% new French oak, which has been completely adsorbed by this sensational wine."

Mount Eden Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mtns Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

94+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
96 Wine & Spirits
(10/2014) "Most of the fruit for this restrained, savory cabernet comes from cuttings Emmett Rixford purportedly sourced from Château Margaux in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated his own cuttings from that selection to plant in this vineyard's shallow, shale-laced soils at 1,800 feet of elevation in the 1940s and 50s, and later Jeffrey Patterson replanted it in the 1980s with a selection from those vines. Is it just a coincidence that, tasting this blind, my thoughts turned to a 1985 Margaux I tasted recently? Maybe it was the gentle elasticity of the texture, the vibrant acidity, the rosy glow streaming through a curtain of ripe, earthy tannins. This feels layered with complexity: Beyond the pure cassis tone you might find lavender, graphite, redwood bark, black olive and green herbs. But you don't need to go fishing for descriptors to appreciate its nuances: just think of it as lovely, integrated, old-school California cabernet. Buy a case and try not to drink most of it until 2030. (1,505 cases)"

Foxen "Block 8 - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2012

94 Wine Advocate
(8/2014) "The 2012 Pinot Noir Block 8 Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley is pure class, with fabulous purity of fruit and an elegant, seamless style. Exhibiting notions of sweet red fruits, crushed flowers and sweet spice, it shows the suppleness of the vintage, yet has solid richness, a layered, balanced feel and a terrific finish. Completely destemmed and aged 17 months in 50% new French oak, it's an awesome Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 5-8 years."

A Tribute to Grace "Besson Vineyard" Santa Clara County Grenache 2014

92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2016) "Another gorgeous, expressive wine, the 2014 Grenache Besson Vineyard has a palpable sense of boldness to it, within the context of Angela Osborne's style, of course. The flavors are deep, dark and bold, with plenty of old-vine intensity that these head-trained vines planted in 1910 confer."

The Hilt "The Vanguard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

91+ Wine Advocate
95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(8/2015) "Dark, pliant and seductive, the 2013 Pinot Noir Vanguard wraps around the palate with striking depth and pure textural richness. Smoke, tobacco, licorice and spices inform the super-expressive aromatics. With time in the glass, the 2013 shows a deeper, darker register. Drink this bold, racy Pinot over the next decade or so. The 2013 is 100% Sanford & Benedict, done with fully destemmed fruit and aged in 40% new oak."

The Hilt "The Old Guard" Santa Barbarra County Chardonnay 2013

94 Wine Advocate
95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(8/2015) "A wine of precision and translucent purity, the 2013 Chardonnay Old Guard is superb. Here, the greater reliance on Santa Maria fruit over Sta. Rita Hills, aging in neutral oak and mostly blocked-malo style come together to yield a vibrant, pulsating Chardonnay built on energy. Lemon peel, white flowers, green orchard fruit and chalk are all given an extra kick of brightness of acidity on the finish, where a slight element of Burgundian-inflected reduction adds further nuance. This is a stunning Chardonnay from The Hilt and Winemaker Matt Dees. Drinking window 2016 - 2025."

A Tribute to Grace Santa Barbara Highlands Grenache 2014

90 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2016) "The 2014 Grenache Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard is one of the most lifted and perfumed wines in Angela Osborne's lineup, although of course, all the wines are aromatic in style. Dried leaves, tobacco, wild flowers and spices waft from the glass in a delicate, nuanced Grenache. Eccentric in style, the 2014 is not as varietally as some of the other wines in the range, but instead provides plenty of insights into Osborne's deeply personal style. The 2014 was done with about 2/3rds whole clusters and aged predominantly in neutral oak."

Jaffurs "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah 2013

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
95 Wine Advocate
(8/2016) "Blackberries, crushed rocks, peppery herbs, violets and hints of salty minerality all emerge from the concentrated, full-bodied, beautifully layered 2013 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard. Aged 22 months in 24% new oak, this sensational Syrah has serious richness, yet never seems heavy, has building, fine tannin and a rocking finish. Hats off to this team for another terrific effort."
