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.

2017 Syrah, Larner Vineyard

2017 Syrah, Larner Vineyard

 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.

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.

The perfect summertime wine!   It has beautiful aromas of freshly crushed strawberries, raspberries, watermelon and framboise jump from the glass while mouthwatering flavors of watermelon, strawberry, cranberry and crisp acidity refresh your palate.  A must have for barbeques, brunch, sitting poolside, an afternoon on the porch or relaxing at the end of the day! An excellent pair with a large variety of dishes including Mexican food, sushi, barbeque chicken, burgers and many salads.

2017 Grenache, Fox Family Vineyard

2017 Grenache, Fox Family Vineyard

The Grenache grapes for this wine are grown on a steep, South-East facing, rocky hillside block of the Fox Family Vineyard in the hills of Los Olivos.  This tiny vineyard is planted to the 362 clone of Grenache and farmed entirely by hand.  Our 2017 vintage exudes a fruit driven palette with a wonderfully soft and subtle long finish.  An elegant wine that keeps inviting you back for another glass.

This is our 12th vintage of Vermentino from the Fox Family Vineyard!

2016 The Dare

2016 The Dare

95 Points

"The 2016 The Dare (100% Syrah) also has a smoky, meaty bouquet of cassis, violets, scorched earth, and charcoal. Beautifully pure, full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with ultra-fine tannins, it opens up nicely with time in the glass, has a layered texture, and a great, great finish. It’s another remarkable effort from this estate that will shine for over a decade". - Jeb Dennuck
