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.

2016 Ambush

2016 Ambush

Ambush is a top barrel selection blend from all of the red varieties - Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel - planted at our estate vineyard, Fox Family Vineyard.  The vineyard is densely planted, organically grown and farmed entirely by hand in the hills of Los Olivos.  The steep slopes and rocky/shale soils lead to very light yields in the 2-2.85 tons/acre range with extraordinary concentration and purity of fruit.  My goal is to create an Estate Blend, which demonstrates the best of what this vineyard has to offer.

2017 Syrah, Kimsey Vineyard

2017 Syrah, Kimsey Vineyard

92+ Points "Dense purple-hued, with a juicy bouquet of ripe black and blue fruits, dark chocolate, graphite, and ground pepper, it's full-bodied and has a rich, concentrated texture, good acidity, and a great finish. " ~ Jeb Dunnuck

¤

94 Points "One of the standouts in this range, 2017 Syrah Kimsey Vineyard is terrific.  The personality of this site works so well with Blair Fox's style.  Bold and explosive, the Kimsey packs tremendous punch in its dark blue/purplish fruit.  It is a Syrah endowed with considerable energy and drive." ~ Antonio Galloni

2016 Linger

2016 Linger

96+ Points from Jeb Dennuck

"The 2016 Linger from Fox Family Vineyard checks in as an interesting split of Syrah and Petite Sirah that spent 22 months in used French Oak.  This inky colored effort offers loads of black fruits, road tar, licorice, and liquid smoke aromatics.  These give way to a concentrated, rich, beautifully textured blend that has terrific purity of fruit, fine tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish." - Jeb Dennuck
