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!

9 3   P o i n t s 

"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 Basler Block Zinfandel

2018 Basler Block Zinfandel

9 1   P o i n t s

"From a single vineyard in Los Olivos, the 2018 Zinfandel Basler Block (there is 6% Petite Sirah in the blend) o!ers a more medium to full-bodied, fresh, focused style revealing lots of sweet blue fruits as well as notes of candied orange, violets, and spice. Brought up all in older barrels, it has loads of charm and character and will keep for 4- 6 years.” - Jeb Dunnuck

2018 Syrah, Zotovich Vineyard

9 4 +   P o i n t s

"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

9 3   P o i n t s 

"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

2018 Petite Sirah, Fox Family Vineyard

2018 Petite Sirah, Fox Family Vineyard

9 4   P o i n t s  

"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

2018 Syrah, Larner Vineyard

2018 Syrah, Larner Vineyard

9 5   P o i n t s

"The 2018 Syrah Larner Vineyard is another Ballard Canyon release, this one coming from a site in the middle to lower part of the valley. It has a classic nose of ripe blackberries, saddle leather, ground pepper, iron, and violets. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, pure, seamless Syrah that has no hard edges and delivers thrilling tannins as well as a great, great finish. It's one of the standouts in this stacked lineup. Count me impressed." - Jeb Dunnuck

 "...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

2018 Syrah, Kimsey Vineyard

2018 Syrah, Kimsey Vineyard

9 5   P o i n t s 

"Inky, rich and explosive , the Kimsey is endowed with tons of intensity. Blackberry jam, chocolate, new leather, licorice and lavender all build in the glass. This huge, potent Syrah packs a serious punch. ~ Vinous

¤

9 3   P o i n t s

 "Dense purple, with a vibrant nose of black and blue fruits as well as cracked pepper, violets, and bay leaf, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a pure, layered texture, good acidity, and outstanding length. This is a classic wine from this estate that brings serious richness and depth while staying nicely balanced and lively. It's certainly not for those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, though~ Jeb Dunnuck
