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."

(3/30/2016) "A rock star in the vintage, Peake Ranch's 2014 Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard (100% Chardonnay aged 14 months in 70% new French oak) gives up a fabulous array of lemon curd, charcoal, citrus blossom and brioche.

Dierberg "Dierberg Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2012

93 Wine Advocate
(8/2014) "The 2012 Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard shows the darker side of Pinot with its earthy, forest floor, red and black fruit and spice aromas and flavors. Coming all from sandy loam sois and aged 18 months in 35% new oak, it's beautifully balanced, has solid mid-palate density and a terrific finish. Enjoy it over the coming 4-6 years."

Au Bon Climat "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay 2012

95 Wine & Spirits
(10/2016) "Jim Clendenen made his first Bien Nacido chardonnay in 1989. He knows his way around the sprawling hillside and benchland vineyard better than just about anyone, and makes this exclusively from K Block, a bench of shale-laced gravelly loam that was planted to own-rooted gewurztraminer in 1973. The block was grafted over to chardonnay in the 1990s, leaving the roots intact, so the grapes continue to benefit from some of the oldest root systems in Santa Barbara County. The wine spent 18 months in new oak barrels, but you'd hardly know it-the intensity of the fruit is the first and last impression, fresh and clean as a breeze through an orchard, suggesting orange blossoms, peach pits and pollen. The wood feels more like the detailing of the wine than the frame, polishing the fruit into a satiny, harmonious form. This is a California chardonnay that will last ten years or more in the cellar-vinous, energetic and deep. (332 cases)"

Folkway "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Merlot 2013

91+ Our Score
(2/2017) Bien Nacido is one of Santa Barbara's greatest single vineyard sites, and Folkway is the only one to bottle Merlot from here. This rich, full-bodied red gives off plenty of delicious black cherry and plum fruits complimented by baking spices, toast and a hint of smoke. The texture is wonderfully velvety and makes the mouthfeel round and plush. Pair this super sexy Merlot with blue cheese crusted Filet Mignon and see what Miles was missing out on in Sideways. What an awesome value!

Cambria "Julia's Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2013

88+ Our Score
(6/2016) This soft and bright Pinot Noir offers up warm and inviting flavors of cherry, strawberry and raspberry that are garnished with sweet notes of vanilla and baking spices. This great value single-vineyard bottling clearly demonstrates how well Pinot Noir does in the cool climate of the Central Coast's Santa Maria Valley. Soft enough to drink on its own, it will also partner up beautifully with fresh salmon, pork or grilled sausages.

Cambria "Benchbreak" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay 2014

At the winery this sells for $22. As we went to press, our price beat every single online listing!
90 Our Score
(4/2016) Formerly labeled as "Katherine's Vineyard," the new "Benchbreak" Chardonnay from Cambria is outstanding. From the foggy, cool climate vineyards of Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley, this wonderful California Chardonnay is completely layered with very tasty flavors of white pear, golden delicious apple, pineapple, mango and lemon zest. The texture is soft, creamy and buttery while fresh acidity keeps it bright and lively. Additional notes of hazelnut, candy corn and caramel add to the palate and the finish. Enjoy this tremendous value all on its own or pair it with creamy pastas, butter poached lobster or baked seafood dishes.
