This wine was harvested from low-yielding vines in the windswept hills of San Luis Obispo which produce tiny grapes, absolutely packed with flavor. The 2018 Petit Grains offers the perfect combo of green apple, hazelnut and mineral freshness. Just a dynamite bottle of American Chard, priced to drink every day.
The 2016 Chardonnay is a product of cool-climate vineyards from Santa Barbara County, just one ridge away from the Pacific. This is the best source for Chardonnay that marries the richness and fruit that many people love with a bracing acidity and mineral freshness that makes the wine so good with food. Oh, and the price is silly!
In San Luis Obispo it’s all about the farming. San Luis Obispo is right on edge of where grapes get ripe but in the right hands, home to some of the most exciting examples of Chardonnay that I ever tasted. Juliana Layla Chardonnay is a lively, cool-climate wine, loaded with crisp green apple and pear fruit, kissed with just a touch new wood.

The latest from OJAI Winemaker Adam Tolmach and his Assistant Winemaker, Fabien Castel. The Ojai Chardonnay Puerta Del Mar 2017 has an Asian pear flavor that’s mixed with green apple, fresh apricot, Meyers lemon and a hint of vanilla. Antonio Galloni says it “bristles with energy” and gave 94 pts!

The Peter Michael “La Carriere” 2017 is a tightly wound, charged up wine that takes time to unravel in the glass. It is loaded with aromas and flavors of citrus rind, white flowers, green apple and pear with a distinctive sense of minerality that flows throughout the wine.
The secret to the Stolpman wine’s freshness and balance is the fact that they do not irrigate. Sure, it stresses the vines but it forces the roots to go really deep, tapping into the groundwater that is seriously affected by the limestone. The grapes are tiny, packed with flavor and brimming with the stony minerality that only the limestone can bring.

The Stolpman Syrah Estate Ballard Canyon 2017 is a beauty, with a mouthful of fresh cherries and red berries, a hint of herbs and a slight white peppery finish. 93 pts and a rave review from Antonio Galloni. Another generous write-up and a 92-pt score from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
Matt Cline’s Three Wine Company’s 2016 Mataro delivers the goods, packing a Superman-sized wallop of incredible black fruit. This is a winter wine, dark and spicy with a fresh, vibrant finish that both speaks to the 100-year old vines it was sourced from and makes it spectacular for any cold-weather feast.
