The White Hawk Vineyard is planted on ancient sand dunes on the south facing slope of Cat Canyon, a side of the Los Alamos Valley in Santa Barbara County. It's 21 miles west of the Pacific and 2 miles north of Los Alamos and planted at 900 feet elevation. This region is recognized as a top producing wine region. Fog often embraces the small vineyard in the morning before gentle afternoon breezes chase it away to allow the sun's rays to slowly ripen the fruit. We custom farm using sustainable and primarily organic viticulture. The yields are miniscule and the berries intense with a strong core of acidity is complemented by elements of meat and blackberries. Although Chardonnay is also planted in this 75 acre vineyard, much of White Hawk's vineyard is planted with Syrah clone 1 on 5c rootstock or Syrah clone 6 on 140R rootstock. Fruit from White Hawk vineyard is shared with other prominent wineries including Ojai Vineyard, Andrew Murray Vineyards, Herman Story Wines, and Sine Qua Non. White Hawk vineyard Read more »

  • The Ojai Vineyard White Hawk Vineyard Sangiovese 2012


    Very attractive red color in the glass. Not the biggest nose in the worldmostly, earthy, slightly musty herbal thing. Very light (for red wine) bodied, and, wow, tart. I love the acidity of Sangiovese-based Chianti, but this is way, way over the top. There are some red-fruit flavors herecherry, raspberrybut they are also very light. Its sim... Read More

  • Back at the home front.Well, the Morroccan dinner last Thursday at Ojai Vineyards was a lot of fun.   We were the first to arrive and were able to engage Fabian and Bill in some fun conversation and enjoy a glass of Viognier--which was, happily, not as flowery as most Viogniers I have previously had--and an excellent "no sulfites added" Syrah fr...

Deep purple with blueberry, huckleberry and lavender overtones, and even a hint of bacon fat - really a terrific wine, particularly with a pork tenderloin or roast duck.9. Your top win... Read More

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk).  Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

  • The Ojai Vineyard Santa Barbara County Syrah White Hawk Vineyard 2006


    Something of a murky purple in the glass. Very smooth on first taste. Not a fruit bomb--that's a good thing. Some attractive hints of plum and, maybe, cherry. Some woody character. Very easy on the back of the palate where I often get bitterness or alcoholic heat. There is some tannin and some acid, but neither are obtrusive. Very pleasant,... 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
