This year I got crazy and found three great Californian classics, offered up at 30% their regular price when part of the six-pick. This one has a little something for everyone for sure. We have a fantastic Santa Barbara Pinot Noir courtesy of one of the most decorated winemakers in California in Adam Tolmach of Ojai. It’s a juicy 2020 Pinot that is absolutely bristling with energy. We have a fantastic Syrah-dominant red blend from rising Southern Cal superstar, Pete Stolpman that Wine Enthusiast absolutely raved about in their 92-point review saying, “It’s hard to find a better wine for the price than this blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Petite Verdot.” We also have our #1 most re-ordered Chardonnay of all time, the outrageously good value coming from Clos Julien’s Price Canyon Chardonnay.

The 2018 Syrah Estate is a fabulous example of both the estate and everything Ballard Canyon is about. Fabulously deep and expansive, the Estate captures tremendous character. The flavors are dark, brooding and so rich. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice and dried herbs abound. The 50% whole clusters are nicely integrated, but the tannins are equally imposing, so a measure of patience is critical. All of the other Syrahs in this range are compelling, but to me the Estate is the most complete. It’s a reference-point wine for the appellation.
