    I loved the nose of the 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley. It just screams Pinot Noir with its spiced cherry, raspberry, white pepper, and sappy herb aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, nicely textured, fresh, and lively...

    Vivid ruby-red. Spice- and mineral-accented red berry, cherry and floral pastille scents show sharp definition and pick up suggestions of licorice and exotic spices with air. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering...

    A cuvée made for winemaker Brennen Leighton's wife and a field blend of 70% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, and 5% Syrah, the 2017 Gratitude ranks with the finest Mourvèdres to come from the state. Awesome notes of black...

    I’ve always loved the Two Acres cuvée from Officer, and his 2017 Two Acres doesn’t disappoint, although I think it’s a small step back from the 2016. Mostly Mourvèdre from deep loam and clay soils, it offers tons of...

    This wine is starting to show some age, but that's only making it more interesting, with soy, dried meat, mulberry and pepper aromas on the nose. Tertiary flavors of dried meat, soy and seaweed show on the briny palate as...
