2013 Ojai Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard, Santa Barbara
On Sale $42.99
The 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard has lots of black raspberry, flowers and crushed-rock nuances as well as a full, layered, beautifully textured feel on the palate. I normally find something masculine and mineral-laced from this vineyard, but this 2013 is all polish and elegance, with rocking purity of fruit.

2013 Ojai Pinot Noir Kick On Ranch, Santa Barbara

Masculine and muscular…the 2013 Pinot Noir Kick On Ranch exhibits lots of wild strawberry, black cherry, crushed violets and distinct minerality to go with a tight, energetic and vibrant feel on the palate. Possessing plenty of acidity and structure, give it a few years in the cellar.

2012 Ojai Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard, Santa Barbara
On Sale $42.99
Medium to full-bodied, beautifully proportioned and seamless, with a layered, silky texture and building tannin on the finish, it could use a tad more mid-palate concentration, yet it’s still a brilliant Syrah that does everything right.

2013 Ojai Sauvignon Blanc McGinley Vineyard, Santa Barbara
On Sale $22.99
Possessing a Loire style in its grassy herbs, citrus, white flowers and striking minerality, it’s medium-bodied, racy and even borderline tart on the finish. Possessing fabulous purity of fruit and a clean, dry finish, I’d drink it over the coming couple of years, but certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see it have a long, interesting evolution either.

Winemaker’s Notes

2012 Foxen Syrah Williamson-Dore Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley
On Sale $43.99
The 2013 Syrah Williamson-Doré Vineyard is shaping up to be a real beauty. Deep, powerful and structured, the 2013 possesses superb depth, with plenty of dark, varietal Syrah fruit and enough intensity to drink well for many years. Next to the sturdier Tinaquaic Syrah, the Williamson-Doré is a bit richer and sweeter through the middle. Both wines are superb and full of potential. The 2013 is 100% Syrah.
93 Points, Vinous Media
