ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "A benchmark estate in the Santa Rita Hills, these first rate efforts are made by Steve Clifton and Read More...
Greg Brewer. The wines are all handled identically in the cellar, so what you get is exactly what the vineyard delivers. In addition, this estate is moving to only estate-farmed vineyards, with Gnesa, Machado, 3-D and Hapgood being the only single-vineyard releases going forward. These 2011s are fantastic and should not be missed!

"Coming from some of the oldest Chardonnay plantings in California (planted in 1982), the 2011 Chardonnay Sweeney Canyon is flat-out gorgeous. Offering up notions of white peaches, mineral, dried pineapple and white flowers, with a saline-like minerality coming through with air, it flows onto the palate with medium-bodied richness, impeccable balance and a great finish. While I would still error on the side of drinking it too young (i.e. over the coming 3-4 years), it should evolve gracefully well past that. Drink now-2018+."

and gamy. Dark red cherry, plum, tobacco and cured meats flesh out in a resonant, highly expressive Pinot endowed with notable depth, especially within the context of the vintage. Hints of dried rose petal and violets linger on the finish. From start to finish, the Encantada is superb.

Bill Wathen and Dick Doré have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Vineyards & Winery at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in Northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time their dedication has remained the same: the creation of small production, sustainably-farmed, vineyard-focused wines using a straightforward and minimalist approach to winemaking. They seem to be doing all the things right, as they now have an amazing following, and their tasting room has become a Santa Barbara Wine Country destination! This bottling comes entirely from the La Encantada Vineyard. This “charmed place” was planted by Richard Sanford in 2000. It is located on the western fringe of the Santa Rita Hills appellation, where its northern exposure makes it one of the coolest sites in the Santa Rita Hills AVA. Yields are minuscule, as Foxen typically gets less than 2 tons per acre, but scores tend to be high. This year’s release earned 94 points from Antonio Galloni!

Lafond is located in the Santa Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County, an ideal environment for growing intensely flavored, full-bodied Chardonnay. This AVA is distinguished Read More...
by a very cool and long growing season created by a convergence of unusual geography in this part of California. It is not uncommon to see high scores given to Chardonnays that are more modest in pricepoint from this region. A blend of fruit from two neighboring vineyards to Lafond, the 2010 Chardonnay "SRH" is Winemaker Bruce McGuire's selection to showcase the ripe, concentrated Chardonnay for which the Santa Rita Hills AVA is known.

Lafond's new blocks of Chardonnay are now in production, and have four additional clones along with their original Wente clone, which was first planted over 25 years ago. The new clones add to the complexity of the wineand introduce subtle flavors which add to its enjoyment and underline the remarkable qualities of the Santa Rita Hills 'terroir'.
The 2012 La Fond is a beautiful pale yellow color. Aromas of lemon meringue, melon tones, and honeysuckle. A full-bodied chard that is concentrated and packs a fantastic fresh finish.

individual characters. They don’t skimp on fruit or texture, yet they also have plenty of earthy, savory characteristics to go with that core of sweet fruit that California provides. In addition, they represent superb values!

"Starting off the Pinot Noirs, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is an outstanding effort that offers juicy black cherries, spice, earth and ground herbs in its sweetly fruited, rounded and supple style. There’s good concentration here, and it opens up nicely in the glass. Already delicious, it will thrill over the coming 5-7 years."
LIQUID FARM 13 CH WHITE HILL

Liquid Farm's "White Hill" bottling is the leaner and more Chablisiane of their two Chardonnay bottlings. Comprised of fruit from some of the best vineyards in the area (Bent Rock, Zotovich, Huber, Read More...
Clos Pepe, Kessler-Haak, Rita's Crown, and Radian), White Hill highlights the unique salinity that comes through in the ancient soils of Santa Rita Hills. The style of this wine will always be racier and predominately neutral barrel fermentation. Its profile is that of mineral, yellow peach, fresh Asian pear, salinity, linen, candied ginger, and lavender cream.

This wine is 100% from Melville's Sta. Rita Hills estate and is a combination of clones 4, 76, 95, and selections Mount Eden, Hanzell and Wente. It is their core Chardonnay and comes Read More...
predominantly from their west side vineyards that have several different types of sandy soils. Because the west side receives the brunt of brutal ocean-winds and has only poor soils, we feel this Chardonnay always captures the vibrancy, minerality and concentrated flavors that are hallmarks of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "Hold onto your hats, as these latest releases from Chad Melville and winemaker Greg Brewer are off-the-charts good!"

"The 2013 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills is a smoking effort that represent a fabulous value in Chardonnay. Made in a pure, clean style, it was barrel-fermented and aged 8 months in neutral oak. It gives up serious notes of lemon, lime peel, tinges of wild herbs and salty minerality to go with a medium-bodied, balanced and elegant profile on the palate that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s superb now, but will also age nicely for 3-4 years."

ANTONIO GALLONI 90 POINTS - "Lemon oil and white flowers are some of the notes that resonate in the 2012 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills. The combination of bright flavors, pulsating acidity and textural breadth is highly appealing. All the elements fall into place in an impeccable Chardonnay to drink over the next handful of years."

Started in 2010 by Rajat Parr (wine director for Michael Mina restaurants), Charles Banks (former owner of Screaming Eagle) and Sashi Moorman (winemaker for Stolpman), Read More...
Sandhi focus on crafting wine from select vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills area of Santa Barbara County. It is because of their focus for balance that these three are so determined to find vineyard sites from the Santa Rita Hills that are old-vine, have cold temperatures and windy exposures. They want wines with vibrancy, freshness and energy, so they prefer neutral barrel and concrete vessel, employing a conservative amount of new French oak, and all wines are wild-yeast fermented.

This wine showcases all the exuberance of Santa Rita Hills and is a great introduction to Sandhi's Pinot Noirs. It is a blend of their vineyard holdings in the Santa Rita Hills coming from our sections at La Encantada, Rita’s Crown, Sanford & Benedict and Bent Rock. It has bright, shiny, crunchy black raspberry fruit with great aromatic lift of fruit, flowers and cola spice. The wine is delicious now and will age gracefully for another 5-7 years. Neutral oak and 100% de-stemmed.

like raspberry and bing cherry with hints of pepper and dried flowers on the nose. The palate delivers silky berry flavors framed nicely by bright acidity and supple tannins.

WINERY NOTES - "Our 2011 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay comes exclusively from our two estate vineyards in heart of this cool climate appellation. The 2010 vintage was marked Read More...
by low yields due to spring frost. This resulted in intense flavors with bright acid. By gently whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation in French oak, this Charonnay has lovely texture to balance the vibrant palate. Our 2011 estate Chardonnay offers intriguing aromas of lemon peel, apricot and toasted hazelnut. In addition to the bright fruit, this wine has aromas of white flowers. On the palate the minerality and acidity give this wine great structure, which carries through its long finish. This full bodied wine has nice acidity to keep it in balance and makes a nice complement to most seafood, poultry and pasta with lighter sauces, and makes an excellent pairing with mushrooms (especially chanterelles and morels."
