Nose doesn't give away much, or my fall allergies have arrived. On the palate, it's an elegantly structured wine with savory flavors of cherry, red currant, cola and sandalwood. Rich and dark. The savory nature comes to a head on the finish with roasted meat jus.

2008 was a great vintage for Taz, and this Santa Barbara bottling is a great value. It really delivers, offering a dry, elegantly structured and complex wine. The silky texture houses savory flavors of cherries, red currants, cola and sandalwood, with an umami taste of bacon. Just delicious for drinking now. Editors' Choice.

Started by legendary viticulturist Bob “Taz” Steinhauer using the grapes from the vineyards he's planted like the famed Fiddlestix vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills. Taz knew with the amazing quality fruit he was growing that he'd be able produce some very fine wine, and he's done just that. This 2008 is a blend from two vineyards; his North Canyon vineyard in the Santa maria Valley and Fiddlestix vineyard. The flavors are distinct and full. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points saying "2008 was a great vintage for Taz, and this Santa Barbara bottling is a great value. It really delivers, offering a dry, elegantly structured and complex wine. The silky texture houses savory flavors of cherries, red currants, cola and sandalwood, with an umami taste of bacon. Just delicious for drinking now."
