2021 Rodney's Vineyard Dry Riesling
Santa Barbara County /$25
In 1989 the Fess Parker family planted its first block of own-rooted Riesling at the home ranch. Later renamed to "Rodney's Vineyard" in memory of Fess' late son-in-law, this Riesling block has delivered fantastic quality and been a mainstay of our Rieslings over the years.
Our Dry Riesling is a beautiful wine aromatically showing notes of white flowers, ginger and Meyer lemon. On the palate, you will find flavors of lemon and Key lime as well as a light mineral character, backed by a lively, crisp, sleek texture.
2020 Ashley's Chardonnay
Sta. Rita Hills | $44
“...deep, potent wine built on real structural intensity. Readers will find an especially savory, mineral style of Chardonnay. Sage, mint, chamomile, crushed rocks and dried flowers open over time, while the fruit is more in the background.”
94 points - Vinous
2021 Ashley's Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills | $64
“The 2021 Pinot Noir Ashley's brings another level of depth and is medium-bodied and as elegant as they come, with beautiful cherry and framboise fruits, subtle nuances of white pepper and leafy herbs, flawless balance, and a great finish...this brilliant effort will evolve for 7-8 years, although I see no reason to hold off either.”

2020 Syrah Santa Barbara County
Santa Barbara County | $30
A smoking little gem of a Syrah, the 2020 Syrah Santa Barbara County has lots of upfront plum and blueberry-like fruits to go with bouquet garni (bay leaf, leafy herbs) and pepper. It has a cool climate-like bouquet but brings plenty of fruit and texture on the palate."
