  2. Melville Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills Estate 2016
    VM92
    $27.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! The 2016 Chardonnay Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is a gorgeous wine built on freshness and cut. Expressive floral notes add shades of nuance to this super-expressive, complex Chardonnay from Melville. The 2016 is the first vintage made by Chad Melville, and it shows a preference towards a less reductive style that characterized the wines during Greg Brewer's tenure. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
  3. Sine Qua Non Grenache Dirt Vernacular 2016
    JD100
    WA96
    $299.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points! One of the finest Grenaches to ever pass my lips is the 2016 Grenache Dirt Vernacular and it’s 78% Grenache, 11.5% Mourvèdre, 7% Touriga Nacional, and the rest Petite Sirah. Reminding me of an old vine Grenache cuvée from the Maurel brothers in Châteauneuf du Pape, it boasts a huge nose of black raspberries, kirsch liqueur, graphite, ground herbs, and pepper. This is one of those wines that offers incredible intensity and depth, yet still just glides over the palate with no sense of heaviness whatsoever. Full-bodied, rich, layered, and pure, it’s a riveting example of Grenache that could come from nowhere else. Drink it any time over the coming 15+ years. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  4. Sine Qua Non Syrah Ratsel 2016
    JD96-99
    WA96+
    $299.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96-99 Points! A not yet bottled blend of 81% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre, 5% Petite Sirah, and the rest Viognier and Grenache, fermented with 47% whole clusters, the 2016 Syrah Rätsel 16 is an inky colored beauty that has another level of depth and richness over the 2015. Black raspberries, cassis, white pepper, white chocolate, and hints of bacon fat give way to a full-bodied, seamless, elegant wine that has terrific freshness and purity, ultra-fine tannin, and a huge finish. Not too dissimilar from the 2014s, which have the same supple, sexy, and approachable style, it should drink reasonably well right out of the gate and cruise for 15-20 years in cool cellars. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  5. The Hilt Pinot Noir The Vanguard Sta. Rita Hills 2016
    JD94
    VM95

    Special Price $69.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points!  As is the case with the Old Guard, the 2016 Pinot Noir Vanguard is relatively buttoned up and less exuberant than it can be. And that is just fine. A powerful, resonant wine, the 2016 exudes intensity and structure, all in a compelling package that has so much to offer. Readers will have to give the 2016 at least a few years to come into its own, but it is positively stellar. The rich, resonant finish makes the 2016 nearly impossible to resist, even at this early stage.

    JD94
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  The 2016 Chardonnay Peake Ranch Vineyard comes from the estate vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and has slightly more minerality and salinity as well as notes of poached pears, spice, honeyed minerality, and toasted bread. It's supple, soft and rounded on the palate, which is very much in the vintage, yet finishes clean and crisp. Aged 18 months in 45% new French oak, drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

    93 Points!  Black cherries, black raspberries, smoked herbs, and hints of licorice define the bouquet of the 2016 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills, which is the entry level Pinot Noir of this estate. It's a rich, concentrated, powerful Pinot Noir that has moderate tannins, good acidity, and beautiful upfront charm. Aged 18 months in 62% new French oak, drink it any time over the coming 6-7 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

    JD95
    VM93
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points!  From a site in the Santa Maria Valley brought up in 22% new French oak, the 2016 Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard offers more minerality as well as an obvious salinity in its orchard fruits, crushed rocks, poached pear, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. Deep, rich, and medium to full-bodied, it’s certainly another brilliant Chardonnay from this estate. - Jeb Dunnuck

    92 Points!  The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc McGinley Vineyard is distinctly phenolic in feel, which is not surprising a half of the juice spent 24 hours on the skins. Candied lemon peel, chamomile and herbal notes abound in this super-distinctive Sauvignon Blanc. The 2017 McGinley is a wine of total class and pedigree.
