  Alchemy “Hello My Name Is” Syrah
The first wine from young Nick Donahue, our Assistant Winemaker. This Syrah from Alisos Canyon Vineyard is a full-bodied Syrah that is ready to drink but could use a few years in the cellar. Of course, you’ll need strong restraint to keep from opening it while you wait for the deep blueberry, leather and anise flavors to meld. Buy it now and test yourself.
  Ashley’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
Ashley’s Vineyard is a 200-acre vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills appellation. The Santa Rita Hills has become known for producing some of the finest Pinot Noir in the world. This wine was made entirely from the Pommard clone, a clone derived from a highly acclaimed region of Burgundy, France. The wine has a dark cherry color with an earthy aroma that is followed by a crisp, round mouthfeel and a soft, delicate finish.
  Cabernet Franc
Santa Ynez Valley. This wine has an aroma of fresh roasted coffee and a soft smooth mouthfeel that has a hint of pepper on the finish.
  Carr Pinot Grigio
This Pinot Grigio marks the first harvest of The Turner Vineyard in Santa Rita Hills, as well as the first white wine from Carr Vineyards & Winery. The juice was cold fermented in stainless steel and aged only five months. This kept the flavors of crisp green apples and spiced tea fresh and intense like the day the grapes were picked. This is the perfect wine to serve with a fresh grilled Halibut on a warm summer afternoon.
  Carr Pinot Noir
Santa Rita Hills Three Vineyards *92 Points Wine Enthusiast * "A very fine Pinot. Medium-bodied and dry, it hits with tremendous spice and ripe red cherry flavors that are succulent. Although it's a silky wine, it has a great grip of tannins and acids that cry out for food. Achieves real complexity through the long finish."
  Clos Pepe Vineyard Pinot Noir
Clos Pepe Vineyard is one of the most recognized vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills appellation. The soft rolling hills and sandy soils have helped to produce some of the best Pinot Noir in the world. Only a handful of winemakers get a chance to make wine from this vineyard. In 2004 we were able to get 2 tons of fruit so we could produce this complex and delicate wine for you to enjoy.
  Grenache Noir “I Don’t Know What”
The grapes came from a vineyard in the heart of the Santa Ynez valley, from a mesa overlooking Foxen Canyon Road. Grenache Noir is a fairly rare varietal in California; being one of the noble Rhone grape varieties and the component of a number of legendary wines it has gotten a bit of a bad rap here in the states (think of the charming but cheeky White Grenache available in a box). The gigantic clusters fell like thunder into the crusher/destemer- ripe, as I like it, because it brings with it the more mature flavors of the fruit; with hints of blackberry and currant, you’ll enjoy its big mouth feel and great acid finish.
  Oreana "Question Mark" Chardonnay (California)
A blend of Chardonnay from two "cool climate" vineyards - one in Mendocino and one in Santa Barbara. Refreshingly crisp and fruit-forward, this is a white wine for red wine drinkers. As the weather cools and the food grows bolder with the season, a bottle of the mysterious Question Mark Chardonnay will ring in the harvest perfectly.
  Oreana Blanc de Noirs
The first bubbly effort from the Oreana Winery. This Pinot Noir-based sparkling wine was produced in the extremely time-consuming methode Champenoise, just like they do in the Old Country. Dry, pink and thirst quenching, this wine IS smmer in a bottle.
  Oreana Pinot Noir
Big, firmly structured and built to last, this Pinot starts off tight. But dark fruit flavors explode on the palate, delivering tons of plums and black cherries. The long, softly tannic finish suggests black raspberry aromas with nuances of tea and leather. This wine will be a friend for the long haul - buy it and hide it.
  Oreana Red Table Wine
A soft, satiny, sexy wine, with voluptuous black cherry and blackberry fruit, plus layers of chocolate and spices suggestive of cinnamon, mint and more. Powerful and complex, yet open and accessible.
  Oreana Syrah
An elegant wine with an elegant nose: soy, lavender and exotic spices open this delightful offering. The fruit, acids and tannins are so perfectly balanced, one could almost overlook the graceful structure and velvety mouthfeel. Seductive now, this wine will continue to be a wickedly enticing asset for years to come.
  Oreana Verdelho
Verdelho was once Portugal's most common white wine, but centuries of market trends towards chardonnay have left it nearly extinct . . . until now. With the flavors of tropical fruit and guava, and the supple body that makes Viognier so seductive, Verdelho is destined for popularity. A wonderfully rich honey-suckle wine that goes great with Asian cuisine, spicy foods and sushi, this wine will be gone before most people know what they are missing.
  Rouselle Chevalier Syrah
A beautiful balance of complex fruit and oak come together in this wine. The Syrah has intense cherry, rasberry and plum flavors. Fruit is sourced from the Thompson Vineyard and Great Oaks Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley.
The wine aged 20 months in French Oak barrels, making it a full bodied red with aromas of melted chocolate and hot caramel.
  Syrah “Beleza”
I found a great Syrah from the same mesa vineyard in Santa Ynez; the second year from this young but promising vineyard. I’ve made and tasted wine from the wineries dabbled along Foxen Canyon road for years and the fruit from this area has a distinct character, which I easily coaxed from this wine. The gamy character has hints of bacon and pepper with a smoky, herbacious finish from its extended aging in oak. This wine goes with anything and is ready to drink now; its been a big hit at a number of gatherings of my closest friends and family.
  Syrah “Savoir Faire”
I imposed on another of my former employers for this fruit for my favorite wine of the vintage. Across Foxen Canyon Road there are some small, hand-farmed vineyards which produce tiny, intense inky black berries in small, tight clusters. Ironically enough, this was the most disappointing wine as I tasted it during its years of barrel age. Its only recently come into its own: an intense, dark, polished wine with delicious fruit forward character and a classic finish. I can only wait and see what this wine does in the bottle, it gets better every time I taste it.
  Turner Vineyard Pinot Noir
Turner Vineyard is located in the Santa Rita Hills appellation of Santa Barbara County. Planted in 2000 by Ryan Carr, the vineyard has fifteen acres of Pinot Noir, three acres of Piont Grigio and three acres of Syrah. 2004 was the first harvest for the Turner Vineyard. The harvest was only one ton to the acres and each vine had no more than six of the most beautiful small, tight clusters on it. This young vineyard produced a delicate wine that is soft and smooth with hardy aromas.
