Reviews
• Wine Enthusiast: 91 Toasty aromas or brioche and hazelnuts meet with chalk and crème fraiche on the nose of this county-wide blend. The palate tangs with lime and grapefruit zest before a softer almond cream aspect rises in the midpalate and extends toward the finish.
• Vinous / Antonio Galloni: 90 The 2016 Chardonnay (Santa Barbara County) is a terrific appellation level wine from Ryan Deovlet. Bright and delineated, with plenty of citrus character, the 2016 offers lovely persistence and class, especially at this level. The 2016 is a blend of 55% Sanford & Benedict and 45% Zotovich fruit.
