90Wine Spectator

Distinctive and elegant, showing a hint of honeycomb to complement the ripe, fleshy peach, melon and apricot flavors, with a fresh thread of acidity and hints of matcha green tea and fennel on the finish.

90Wine Enthusiast

Slightly honeyed aromas kick off the nose of this bottling, which also shows orange blossom, struck stone, baked apple and a hint of wax. The palate tangs with grapefruit peel before leading into roasted apple and an array of floral flavors.


United States, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County

Santa Barbara County is not an AVA, but a region just south of San Luis Obispo that includes the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley appellations. Wine has been produced in the area since the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted vineyards. It wasn’t until the 1990s, however, that producers focused on growing premier grapes for fine wines. During the 1990s more than 10,000 acres of vineyards were planted, and today there are nearly 20,000 acres of vineyards. The region received a big bump in recognition and prestige when the popular film “Sideways” was shot there in 2004. Because the region is affected by maritime weather, it is relatively cool climate makes it ideal for Chardonnay. Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and an increasingly adventuresome number of varietals are also grown successfully in Santa Barbara County.
