Mendocino County

94 Points - Christopher Sawyer "Sommelier to the Stars"

Deep, rich and generous, with a deep purple hue.  Aromas of crushed violets, ripe berries, blueberry pop-tarts, black currant, licorice, chocolate-coated espresso beans, allspice, and cedar box.  In the glass, deeper fruit notes are layered with earthy and spicy notes of black truffle, mineral, wild herbs, black pepper, cardamom, and a subtle hint of smoked hickory.  Full-bodied with a plush, velvety texture.  Coats the plate with fresh, juicy flavors of black raspberry, blueberry, boysenberry and dark plum.

This is one of those powerhouse California blockbuster blends that just works.   It just begs you to bring some to the party, splash it around, you get the idea.  Approachable now or cellar for up to a decade... if you can wait that long.  Grab a handful, bring on the meats and enjoy! 

Food Pairings:  To match the lavish flavors and grip in this brilliant blend, serve this wine with blue cheese aside nuts and dried fruits, charcuterie, risotto with wild mushrooms, juicy burgers, roasted squab, pan-seared duck with blueberry reduction sauce, Korean barbeque, gamey meats, or Osso Buco.

2017 Red Blend, Syrah-Cabernet
Santa Barbara County

93 Points, Vinous
A great example of where Cabernet's structure and depth are balanced by Syrah's jammy fruit-forward flavors. Savory aromas of dark berries, cassis, baking spices and vanilla that intermingle with earthy notes of dried tobacco, cigar box and saddle leather. Notes of dark fruit flavors carry on to the palate, with dark chocolate, vanilla and a hint of black currant.

2017 Chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley
Sierra Madre Vineyard

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Aromas bright orchard fruit, lemon confit and white flowers. The palate is crisp, fresh, ripe and savory all at once... a nice interplay of honeyed citrus fruits in the mouth, with a light to medium weight, juicy acidity presenting flavors of Asian pear, nectarine and Rainier cherry with a smooth textured finish of new French oak.
