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
“Tart and ashy aromas of yellow apple, lemon peel and grapefruit zest make for a racy nose on this bottling. There's a great textural edge to the palate, where lemon pith and crisp acidity cuts through broad nectarine and salty almond flavors.”

2020 Sanford & Benedict Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills | $64
... a beauty, o!ering classic Sanford & Benedict focus, purity, and minerality. Ripe raspberries, red cherries, chalky minerality, and white flowers all emerge on the nose, and it's medium-bodied, has outstanding balance, and a great finish. The tannins here are present yet ripe and integrated, it has good acidity, and is clearly a standout. It’s going to evolve for a solid decade."

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."
