2017 Ojai McGinley VineyardSanta YnezSauvignon Blanc

There is some cushion of fruit with elongated curves and more forgiving edges, but no shortage of acidity in the prickly fresh finish. Expect the familiar crunchy Asian pear, green apple, and mineral elements of this Sauvignon Blanc, but also enjoy the pungency of floral fragrance in the 2017, with some air the citrus blossom aromas get downright heady.







2017 Ojai Roll RanchVentura CountyViognier

The Roll Ranch Viognier is a beautiful wine, wafting from the glass with an understated bouquet of peach, apricot and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with nice juicy acidity and tension at the core, and a long, vibrant and perfumed finish. While this certainly possesses a texture and perfume that are unmistakably Viognier, it's a comparatively delicate







2017 Ojai Solomon Hills VineyardSanta Maria ValleyChardonnay

Very bright and refreshing aromas of kaffir lime, lime blossom and lemongrass meet with gravel and strong chalk on the pinpoint nose of this bottling.

2017 Ojai SyrahSanta BarbaraSyrah

I loved the 2016 Syrah Santa Barbara County, a wine to buy by the case. Elegant, perfumed notes of blue fruits, peppery herbs, violets, and a touch of minerality all give way to a rounded, fruit-forward, fleshy beauty that’s geared for drinking over the coming 4-5 years. 92 Jeb Dunnuck

2017 Belle PenteWillamette ValleyPinot Noir

Intense, highly perfumed red fruit and floral pastille aromas show excellent clarity, and a zesty mineral overtone builds in the glass. Focused on the palate, offering lively raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Juicy, pure and precise, finishing with very good focus and silky, even tannins that add gentle grip.
