Commitment to Quality

We hand craft our wines with integrity using traditional methods from grapes sustainably grown in our Santa Barbara County vineyard. Since 1973, we have farmed and nurtured our vineyard to produce wines that are true to the unique spirit of our land.

 

 

  • 2012 Mesa Reserve Syrah

    "Not as deeply purple as other Syrahs, this bottling shows more broad red-fruit aromas of caramelized cherry along with lilacs, violets, crushed black rocks and vanilla cola. Mulberry, dark strawberry and plum elements bring intrigue to the palate, which also offers savory black sesame and hoisin notes." - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, October 2016 Issue

  • 2013 Chapel G Syrah

    "A wondrous array of blackberry, pepper, dried meat, soft lavender, well-integrated lilac and crushed graphite show on the nose of this bottling from a vineyard planted in 2008. A firm but not overpowering tannic structure and bright acidity present flavors of dried violets, blueberry and tar on the palate." - 92 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, October 2016 Issue

  • 2014 Z Blanc"The sunny, high-elevation Zaca Mesa estate is one of the warmer spots in the Santa Ynez Valley, its warmth bringing balanced ripeness to this blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier. The vines grow in soils based on shale and sand. There's no escaping the oak here, but the exuberance of the wine's tangerine flavor takes charge, melding with the oak into a mineral-tinged honeycomb flavor that lasts. Its sophisticated richness will match chicken liver mousse." - 91 points (Best Buy), Wine & Spirits Magazine, February 2017 Issue
