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, Tierra Alta Vineyard

2018 Syrah, Tierra Alta Vineyard

The Syrah grapes came from a very steep hillside block of Clone 1 planted in shallow calcareous soils.  Located in the Ballard Canyon of Santa Barbara County with a cool marine influence and long, cool growing season these grapes possessed excellent purity and depth while the vineyard produced a meager 2.3 tons per acre crop with excellent concentration.

2018 Ambush

2018 Ambush

9 4   P o i n t s

"Based on 56% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Petite Sirah, and the rest Zinfandel, the 2018 The Ambush Fox Family Vineyard reveals a medium ruby/purple color to go with notes of kirsch, peppery herbs, bouquet garni, and herbes de Provence. This layered, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured beauty o!ers rocking levels of fruit and texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. Drink this pleasure-bent, gorgeous Rhône-like blend over the coming 7-8 years."  ∼ Jeb Dunnuck

“Opulent, heady Grenache-based blend packs a serious punch. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice all race out of the glass. This is a terrific example of Blair Fox's style. There is plenty of sumptuous fruit, and a good deal of structure, too.”  - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

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 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

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

2018 The Dare

9 2   P o i n t s

"More ground pepper, leather, cured meats, and savory herbs notes define the 2018 Syrah The Dare, a 100% Syrah sourced from the finest barrels of Kimsey, Fox Family, Larner, Zotovich, Thompson, and Tierra Alta Vineyards. Medium-bodied, nicely textured, and concentrated, it has a complex, savory, layered, Hermitage-like style that's going to shine for a good 7-8 years."  ∼  Jeb Dunnuck

"This site has produced a perfumed, savory, complex red ...Violets, incense, herbs de Provence, and loads of pepper all flow to a medium to full-bodied, seamless wine that shines both for its complexity as well as richness and length.  This is a brilliant, elegant, classic high-quality California Syrah" - Jeb Dennuck of the 2016 vintage
