ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "No one has done more to carry the banner for the Santa Rita Hills than Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton. Read More...
Both together at Brewer-Clifton and separately in their other projects, Brewer and Clifton consistently deliver delicious wines that are also deeply thought provoking with regards to the potential these vineyard sites hold. The Pinots in particular are compelling. The 2009 Pinots saw a seven day cold soak and fermentations that lasted a total of 35-40 days, with 100% stems.

"The 2009 Chardonnay 3-D is quite fresh and vibrant. Lime, lemon, minerals and saline notes emerge from this energetic Chardonnay. The wine’s vibrancy follows through nicely to the focused finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019."

growing season, which allows full phenolic maturity at reasonable sugar levels. In 2011 Dragonette obtained fruit from four separate blocks, consisting of clones 113, 115, 667 and 777 in precise locations in the vineyard. Each clone contributes unique characteristics, adding complexity to the final blend; however, the wines all bear the signature characteristics of Fiddlestix.

As always, the grapes were harvested in the early morning (or night), and are personally hand sorted the clusters in the field. Dragonette processed the fruit within hours; some is fully destemmed without crushing, some is fermented with a percentage of whole clusters (approximately 15-20% of the final blend). The grapes are cold soaked for 4 to 7 days before permitting fermentation to commence with native yeasts, and using a mixture of pigage, pumpovers and gentle punchdowns for extraction. A t dryness, free run juice was drained directly to barrel and the remaining berries gently pressed separately. The wine was aged on its lees for 18 months in French oak barrels, 25% new, without racking, before rigorous selection, blending and bottling without fining or filtration. Only 300 cases were produced.

Dragonette's Tasting Notes: Despite its youth, this wine already displays terrific depth and complexity within its medium bodied frame. The nose is a mélange of high toned red fruits; black cherry, raspberry and pomegranate, interspersed with smoky notes of charcoal, nori and black licorice and Asian spices of cardamom and star anise. On the palate is medium bodied, presenting classic Santa Rita Hills black cherry fruit with notes of dried cranberry, rhubarb, strawberry jam, complicated by energetic citrus notes of blood orange zest and pomegranate pith which then merge with herbs (thyme), wet earth and stony minerals. The wine has solid acids and fine grained tannins providing lift and a long, complex and fascinating finish.

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.

LIQUID FARM 12 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.

STEPHEN TANZER'S INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 91 POINTS - "(made from fruit grown in the Bent Rock, Zotovich, Huber, Clos Pepe, Kessler-Haak, Rita's Crown and Radian vineyards; aged mostly in neutral oak, with 18% in stainless steel): Light, bright gold. Spicy pear, Meyer lemon, honeysuckle and a subtle touch of smoky lees on the nose. Deep, sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are complicated by sweet butter and mineral notes, with a note of anise building with air. The incisive, long finish strongly echoes the floral and mineral qualities."

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. Yields were 4.2 tons/acre. White-gold in color and with great delineation, this bottling reminds us of lemon verbena, yellow cucumber, chalk and grilled pineapple. Other intriguing aromas drift towards star anise, salt-water taffy, white currants, sage and hazelnut. The wine attacks the palate with its acidity finishing with great weight wrapping continuously around your palate.

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - “Crushed red berries, mint, flowers and cinnamon lift from the glass in the 2012 Pinot Noir Estate Sta. Rita Hills. This Read More...
is one of the most polished, refined and aromatically expressive wines I have tasted from Melville. What a gorgeous, radiant and totally sexy wine this is.”

Melville has become a nucleus for Rhone & Burgundy varietals from Santa Rita Hills. Nestled in the heart of Santa Barbara County, Melville has always focused on their vineyards, knowing that the vineyard is where great wine begins! After studying at U.C. Davis, brothers Brent & Chad, who manage the family’s estate vineyards, focused on giving winemaker Greg Brewer (also of Brewer-Clifton fame) the best fruit they could possibly produce. In turn, Greg has crafted wines that receive high scores and rave reviews year-in and year-out…and this year is no different! As always, their Pinot’s are a prodigious effort; medium-bodied & richly nuanced and oh so polished!

ESTATE SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL
Item: #241220
Bottle Size:750ml
$27.98

Picked over a three day period in mid November, the fruit for this wine comes exclusively from Melville's Santa Rita Hills estate and is a combination of two different Syrah clones (Read More...
Estrella and Clone 99). The Estrella is from Donna’s block which is planted on well drained, nutrient deficient sand. The neutrality of this soil always lends an intoxicating and high toned bouquet of flowers and spice while the Clone 99 from Block I is planted on denser sandy loam soil, bringing depth and richness to the resultant wine. 15% whole cluster fermented in small 1.5 ton bins, total skin and stem contact averaged 30 days (7 day cold soak, 2+ weeks fermentation, and 1+ week extended maceration). From the press the wine was transferred directly to neutral barrels (5-20 year old French oak) where it remained sur lie with no sulfur until May when it was gently pressure racked for the first time and prepared for bottling in August.

Inky garnet in color, fresh and vivid aromatics of boysenberry cream, plum cobbler, allspice and mincemeat emanate from the glass. In the background, herbal notes of Mexican oregano, fennel seed, clove and chili powder intermingle with deeper components of liquid smoke, menthol and roasted blue corn. The palate impression is tender and polished with a firm presence finishing with significant weight and focus. Only 839 cases were produced!

Winemaker Rick Longoria lovingly farms this terrific site and generously allows Ojai to purchase a small portion of his vineyard's production. Rick and Adam Tolmach (owner and winemaker Read More...
at Ojai) agree that there is only a moment in time when the character of the vineyard fully expresses itself. Picked a couple of days too soon or too late and all is lost. The raw material here at Fe Ciega is so interesting--it has the acidity that is needed for good balance and it possesses a unique vineyard personality that is intriguing. While it is always fruit filled, deeply colored and dense, it is not particularly fruity—this is a wine that speaks of its earthy origins!
