Tyler is one of the biggest players in Southern California. It’s a relatively new winery, but with some serious old and well-established vineyards amongst its holdings. Dierberg, La Rinconada, Bien Nacido, and Sanford & Benedict Vineyard are four of the seven that the winery utilizes to make their 12 wines. All of them have huge scores. All of them are reasonably priced. It’s why these guys are such a hot ticket.
Their 2021 SBC Chardonnay is an outrageously good cool-climate domestic Chardonnay. The Santa Barbara County Chardonnay is composed of grapes from the Bien Nacido, Dierberg, La Rinconada, and Sanford & Benedict vineyards. Aromatically the wine has notes of flint, white chalk, with a combination of stone and citrus fruits and a hint of florality. On the palate, the wine is extremely mineral-driven with notes of white pepper and green apples.

The 2021 Chardonnay overdelivers for its appellation-wide status. It has pretty scents of quince, poached pear, spring honey, chalk and roasted almonds. The medium-bodied palate is satiny, savory and expansive with dynamic flavor layers and a very long finish.
93 Pts, James Suckling
A very bright and clear wine with lightly cooked fruit and pastry character. Medium-bodied with creamy texture and a crispness at the end. Lemon and lime in the finish. Drink now.
