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.

2018 Syrah, Ampelos Vineyard

2018 Syrah, Ampelos Vineyard

This is our first vintage of Syrah from Ampelos Vineyard and we are so excited!  This vineyard has so many characteristics that we love...certified organic, biodynamic, amazing Syrah clones and excellent quality.  What pairs well with this wine?  Another glass!

93 Points

"It offers lots of darker, almost blue fruits as well as Crozes Hermitage-like peppery herbs, earth, chocolate, and gamey nuances. Medium to full-bodied and nicely textured, with beautiful fruit, it’s another fabulous wine from Blair."  ∼  Jeb Dennuck

2018 Syrah, Zotovich Vineyard

2018 Syrah, Zotovich Vineyard

94+ Points

"Deep purple-hued, with a decidedly cool climate nose of white pepper, cedar, smoked game, and assorted black (and some blue) fruits, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a layered, pure, nicely focused texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish."  ∼  Jeb Dunnuck

2018 Syrah, Fox Family Vineyard

93 Points

"Classic Syrah blue fruits, violets, cracked pepper, and spice notes all emerge from the 2018 Syrah Fox Family Vineyard, a full-bodied, round, sweetly fruited and sexy red that pushes on the ripeness pedal while still holding on to that classic 2018 liveliness and freshness."  ∼  Jeb Dunnuck

2017 Ambush

2017 Ambush

92 Points

"Based largely on Grenache, the 2017 Ambush Fox Family Vineyard includes 52% Grenache, 24% Syrah, 12% Petite Sirah and 12% Zinfandel, and was brought up in a mix of new and once-used barrels.  Smoky black fruits, licorice, cured meats, and toasted spice notes all emerge from the glass.  This big, rich, sweetly fruited blend has plenty of upfront charm and texture as well as a great finish."  ∼ Jeb Dunnuck

2018 Petite Sirah, Fox Family Vineyard

2018 Petite Sirah, Fox Family Vineyard

94 Points 

"Blockbuster stuff, the 2018 Petite Sirah Fox Family Vineyard doesn’t pull any punches and has loads of pure black and blue fruits as well as medium to full body, a seamless, layered mouthfeel, velvety tannins, and solid pepper, herbal, and earthy aromas and flavors. As with almost all of Blair’s wines, it brings the fruit, opulence, and texture."  ∼  Jeb Dunnuck

94 Points  "... it has a ripe, sexy style as well as lots of cedary spice, mulled red and black fruits, chocolate, and peppery aromas and flavors. Beautifully balanced, with good freshness and purity..." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

¤

95 Points "...Inky blue/purplish fruit, leather, smoke, licorice and tobacco infuse the 2017 with striking layers of complexity...The Dare is unctuous and full-bodied, qualities that emerge fully with a bit of time in the glass" ~ Antonio Galloni
