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."

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."

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."

Samsara "Turner Vineyard" Santa Barbara Syrah 2012

93+ Wine Advocate
95+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2015) "Once again, the 2012 Syrah Turner Vineyard is the star of the show at Melville. An exotic mélange of blood orange, violets and spices makes a strong first impression. Deep and beautifully layered on the palate, the Turner offers superb depth and plenty of tannin to back it up. An explosive, vibrant finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. This is a real head-turner from SAMsARA and proprietor Chad Melville."

92 Wine Advocate
(8/2015) "A blend of 16% 2011, 76% 2012 and 8% 2013, the NV Xi / Xii / Xiii Transcendentalist is a gorgeous blend of 46% Syrah, 41% Grenache and 13% Mourvedre that spent 10-34 months in 16% new French oak.

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $47.99!
93 Wine Advocate
(8/2014) "The 2012 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido is a medium-bodied, rich, textured, yet elegant red that has plenty of ripe black cherries, underbrush, salt block and wild herb aromas and flavors. Seeing 15% whole cluster inclusion and 17 months in 46% new French oak, it excels for it purity, as well as for its seamless, silky texture. I'd drink it over the coming 4-6 years, but suspect it will evolve for longer."

92 Wine Advocate
(8/30/2016) "Coming in at the value end of the spectrum and a straight up Terrific effort, the 2014 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County (aged 16 months in 30% new French oak) has tons of crisp peach, salty sea breeze, white flowers and citrus. It is medium-bodied and lively, with vibrant acidity and a clean, pure, elegant profile that just begs you to pour another glass. Buy a case and drink it over the coming 4-6 years."

Jaffurs "Thompson Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Petite Sirah 2014

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2016) "One of the many highlights in this range, the 2014 Petite Sirah Thompson Vineyard is another superb wine from Jaffurs. Here it is the wine's inner sweetness and perfume that stand out most. The firm Petite tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer voluptuousness of the fruit. Sweet red and blueberry jam, wild roses and a bit of sweetness from the 20% new oak barrels comes through nicely."
