Kick-On Ranch Riesling 2017

Rich, honeyed, and intoxicating nose. Mott’s apple juice color. Broad on the palate with persimmon and canned peaches. Botrytis.
Air was kind. Have a few more ‘17, so will see how it develops.

Küstennebel Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2021

2021 vintage. Pretty and floral in both the nose and the mouth with a cherry start and a strawberry finish. A bit of dirt/earth mid-palate to temporarily derail the beauty contest. Decently long finish. — a year ago

Sta. Rita Hills Syrah 2019

2019 vintage. A little cooler and less demonstrative than expected for Santa Rita Hills. Tight but nicely made. Needs time or a generous decanting. — 2 years ago

Hinter der Mauer Central Coast White Blend 2022

What a fun little number! Grassy and floral with white pepper on the nose, then the mouthfeel brings some fleshy grapefruit, pomelo, lime and a tropical lychee twist in a deliciously dry way — 3 months ago


Steinhugel Riesling 2021

Wow I love this wine. That classic rich mouthfeel that’s the hallmark of a good Riesling, the totally refreshing acidity and a clean lingering aftertaste. There is a tension in this wine that is really compelling. Love it! — 5 months ago


Heidi Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2015

Big - lots of whole cluster - quite fruit driven. Just 24 cases made. 13%. This will need so much more time for the fruit to mellow out. Made in honor of Grahams daughter birthday. I hope she enjoys it once she is 16 ahem. I mean 21. Quite herbaceous now. Cardamom, elderberry, celery. Not necessarily my style but this could be quite nice in years to come - made to age! — 2 years ago
