Wine tasting in Santa Barbara County for best wines

Blair Fox Cellars is passionate about the production of small lot, hand crafted bottlings of wines from the most premium vineyards in Santa Barbara County. All these wines are vineyard designated and you can truly taste the "terroir" in each glass.

We search for vineyards, which produce grapes with beautiful concentration and intense varietal character. These grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted, fermented in small lots, and basket pressed to ensure the highest possible quality and true expression of the vineyard.

We produce predominately vineyard designated Syrah, estate grown Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Vermentino, and a small amount of Viognier. The red grapes are lightly crushed, partially de-stemmed and punched down by hand throughout fermentation. After fermentation is complete the wines are basket pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for aging. These red wines are aged for two years in barrel prior to being bottled.

The Viognier and Vermentino grapes are hand sorted and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the fresh, floral, and fruity qualities of these amazing varietals. The juice is then fermented in older French oak barrels and a small percentage of stainless steel while preventing malo-lactic fermentation to promote bright, crisp acidity.

2014 Foxy Bubbles

2014 Foxy Bubbles

The 2014 Foxy Bubbles were disgorged, capped and labeled the last week of December 2016 of this year after resting in bins on their secondary fermentation lees for over twenty months.  The lees add complexity and give the sparkling Grenache rosé a nice biscuity aroma and flavor to go along with the beautiful fruit flavors of strawberry, cranberry and raspberry. Every bottle has been touched at least 10 times from bottling, riddling and disgorging!

2014 Petite Sirah, Fox Family Vineyard

2014 Petite Sirah, Fox Family Vineyard

The Petite Sirah grapes for this wine are grown on a steep, South-West facing, rocky hillside block of the Fox Family Vineyard in the hills of Los Olivos.  This tiny vineyard is planted to the “Rockpile” clone of Petite Sirah, with the original cuttings sourced directly from the Rockpile Vineyard in Sonoma, and farmed entirely by hand.  These grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted, 100% destemmed without being crushed, leaving approximately 90% whole berries, into a small, open top fermentor.

2014 Larner Vineyard Syrah

2014 Larner Vineyard Syrah

The Larner Vineyard is located on the Southern end of the Ballard Canyon A.V.A.  I use the Estrella River Clone of Syrah, which is one of the oldest Syrah Clones in California.  The vines are planted on a south facing slope in pure sand.  This vineyard produces cooler climate Syrah characteristics with purity of fruit and vibrant fruit flavors. The grapes were 80% destemmed without being crushed, leaving over 95% whole berries and 20% whole-cluster, into a 1.5-ton open top fermentor and cold-soaked for five days prior to inoculation.  The addition of whole-cluster adds structure and vitality to the final wine.  I feel the stems add an interesting savory element to this wine that I enjoy.  This wine was aged in barrel for an additional twenty-two months prior to being racked from barrel and bottled.

2015 Viognier, Paradise Road

2015 Viognier, Paradise Road

This vineyard possesses red, iron rich, nutrient deprived soils at a much higher elevation than most other Santa Barbara County vineyards.  These Viognier grapes are always the first to be harvested and fill the winery with beautiful, exotic aromas.   Beautiful aromas of freshly cut white flowers, honeydew melon, peach and nectarine jump from the glass while mouthwatering flavors of ripe, juicy peaches, nectarine and citrus lead way to bright, crisp acidity to refresh your palate.
