Sea Smoke "Sea Spray" Blanc de Noirs 2011

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $79.99!
Winemakers Notes
"Hand harvested in late August of 2011, the Pinot Noir for this methode champenoise sparkling wine is the result of a careful cluster selection from Sea Smoke's estate vineyard. Following six months of sur lie aging in barrel, the wine was bottle aged an additional 16 months en tirage prior to disgorging. The wine was finished with no dosage, to preserve its finesse. The nuanced nose expresses cranberries, lavender, fresh bread and lemon curd. The wine enters the palate with energetic freshness and finishes with delightful length."

Peake Ranch "John Sebastiano Vineyard" Sta Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2014

96 Wine Advocate
(8/30/2016) "Another stunning effort from winemaker Paul Lato, the 2014 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard (raised in 60% new oak) offers another level of purity and focus over the straight Sta. Rita Hills release. Chambolle-Musigny like with its elegant, ultra-pure and nuanced bouquet of framboise, flowers and spice, this beauty has no hard edges, perfect balance and a seamless, silky texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It's beautiful already, yet should keep for 7-8 years, possibly longer."

A.P. Vin "Clos Pepe Vineyard" Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2012

93 Wine Advocate
(10/2014) "The 2012 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard is a beautiful effort that excels on all accounts. Loaded with notions of cherry blossom, cassis, sweet spice, potpourri and flowers, it flows onto the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, solid mid-palate depth and high quality tannin that come together nicely on the finish. This is classic expression of this top-notch vineyard, and it will continue to thrill for 4-6 years."

The Hilt "The Vanguard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2012

93+ Our Score
93+ Wine Advocate
(8/2014) "The 2012 Pinot Noir Vanguard comes mostly from the Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, yet has 15% of the blend coming from Bien Nacido. Aged in 45% new French oak, it's a rich, muscular effort that has lots of underbrush and herbs to go with toast, spice, black raspberry and currant-styled fruit. This concentrated, yet layered and seamless beauty will drink well for over a decade."

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

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $49.99!
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."

Peake Ranch Sta Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2014

93 Wine Advocate
(8/30/2016) "The entry level cuvee, and one that delivers the goods, the 2014 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills comes all from the John Sebastiano Vineyard and was fermented and aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. It's another killer wine that gives up medium-bodied richness and depth as well as classy notes of crushed flowers, sweet cherries, strawberries and forest floor. Drink this elegant, silky and downright seamless Pinot Noir over the coming 4-5 years."

The Hilt "The Old Guard" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2011

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $43.99!
94 Wine Advocate
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(7/2013) "A fascinating contrast to the Vanguard, the 2011 Chardonnay Old Guard is much more airy, precise and delicate. Hints of lemon, pastry and white stone fruits all flow in a Chardonnay that stands out for its pure class and personality. Bright, saline-infused notes support the finish. This is a first-class showing. The 2011 was aged 68% in neutral oak and 32% in steel, with partial malolactic fermentation (25%) and weekly batonnage."

Brewer Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

91 Our Score
91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(12/2014) "Bright ruby-red. High-pitched red berry and floral scents are sharpened by suggestions of white pepper and allspice. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become fleshier and sweeter with air. Fruit-driven and accessible, finishing with strong punch, repeating florality and slow-building supple tannins."

Melville Sta. Rita Hills Estate Chardonnay 2014

92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2016) "The 2014 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is rich and powerful in the glass, yet also shows good energy and overall translucence, especially for such an ample, broad-shouldered wine. Orange blossom, mint, spice and butter are front and center. With time in the glass, more tropically-leaning notes begin to develop. This, too, is, very nicely done. Drinking window: 2017 - 2022."

Lompoc Wine Company Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2014

What do you get when you combine a talented winemaker, a James Beard award-winning sommelier and one of California's longest growing seasons? The most impressive sub-$20 Pinot Noir we have tasted in a long time!
92 Our Score
(6/2016) Sashi Moorman and Rajat Parr founded Lompoc Wine Company in 2012 with a commitment to creating affordable, terroir-driven wines. Using fruit sourced from some of the best vineyards in the area: Sanford & Benedict, Rita's Crown and Bent Rock, this beautiful 2014 bottling is packed full of flavor yet remarkably light on its feet. Flavors of dark cherry, raspberry, spice, rhubarb, white pepper and herbs are backed with bracing acidity and smooth tannins. We enjoyed our sample bottle over a period of six days. It was still delicious on the last day, absolutely amazing! The other wines this dynamic duo make retail for two to three times more than this gem. At $19.99 per bottle, this is one you can't miss!
