Comes from the ridges in the vineyards with shallowest soils and most limestone influence. All spontaneous fermentation. Limestone gives great ripeness, helps hold the acidity, ... Read More

  • I’ve already written up the Grenache based wines I tasted during my time in Santa Barbara, they can be found here: Grenache - The Next Pinot Noir?  so today I am focusing on most of the remaining wines that I tasted while in the region. I’ll save the few Pinots I Tasted for a Pinot round-up, which might surprise some folks. You see I went to San... Read More

  • Harrison-Clarke Cuvee Charlotte Estate Santa Ynez Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    In barrel 23 monthsThis offers up a simply classic syrah nose rich with inky black pepper, leather, teriyaki, black plum, and lightly minty aromas. On entry theres a tight mineral note followed by a rich, round wine with angular tannins filling out the palate. The wine pops with lovely inner mouth perfumes, blackberrying pie filling, a bit crea... Read More

  • Harrison Clark Syrah Cuvée Charlotte Ballard Canyon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Wow nose with simply huge aromatics of dry dusty soil, blackberries, raspberries and a lovely framing note of baking spice. This lacks some of the savory notes Im looking for but is a big and a bit chewy mouthful of Syrah with gorgeous happy fruit. Id like to see this in another year. 93pts Read More

    10% syrahOn the nose this shows off gorgeous aromatics that are topped with floral notes and laced with hints of cinnamon and angelica root along with a real wild herb/garrigue element that helps highlight the raspberry, strawberry fruit. This is very fresh and lively in the mouth with juicy acids and lovely fruit tannins offering crisp, lively ... Read More

  • Harrison Clarke Grenache Santa Ynez Valley Harrison Clarke Vineyard 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Inky on the nose with layers of floral, cinnamon spice and white pepper overtones to the gorgeous red fruit aromas that pop in the glass. This is bright tense and clear in the mouth with a gentle savory cast yet plump with red cranberry, currant, and strawberry flavors that are supported by a super juicy, gently tannic structure that lends a tou...
