2022 Winter Wine Releases

Posted: Feb 16, 2022

We release five new wines to our wine mem­bers each quar­ter, four of which are pro­duced in extreme­ly lim­it­ed quan­ti­ties and are only avail­able direct­ly from our Los Olivos win­ery. One of the new wines is usu­al­ly pro­duced in larg­er quan­ti­ties and is avail­able in dis­tri­b­u­tion across the country.

The five wines are first shared exclu­sive­ly with our wine mem­bers and are then made avail­able to the gen­er­al pub­lic the fol­low­ing quar­ter. These excep­tion­al, small pro­duc­tion wines often sell out quick­ly, so join­ing will ensure your allotment. 

These are the five wines we released to our mem­bers in Feb­ru­ary 2022

2020 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Grenache Blanc

Lime zest, green apple, and a flo­ral note jump from the glass of the 2020 PMV Grenache Blanc. Rich tex­ture and juicy acid­i­ty high­light the mouth where more lime zest, green apple, Asian pear, and min­er­al fla­vors unfold on a very long fin­ish. Drink this wine over the next 3 – 5 years.

Drink: 2022 — 2027 | 200 Cas­es Pro­duced | Bal­lard Canyon AVA

Retail: $32


2020 Cuvee le Bec

Our name­sake red wine blend is back with anoth­er remark­able vin­tage! The 2020 Cuvee le Bec is a blend of 51% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 6% Mourve­dre, and 5% Counoise, with stun­ning and dense aro­mas of ripe red and black fruits, spices, and flo­ral notes. The mouth is filled with more dark fruits and spices which bright­en on the back end as the Grenache and Counoise express them­selves on the lift­ed fin­ish. Anoth­er very spe­cial vin­tage of the Cuvee le Bec, as bal­anced and deli­cious as ever! Drink this now and over the next 12 years.

Drink: 2022 — 2034 | 3,950 Cas­es Pro­duced | San­ta Ynez Val­ley AVA

Retail: $28


2020 Estate Grenache

Ripe and gen­er­ous, the 2020 Estate Grenache is filled with aro­mas and fla­vors of hol­i­day spices, kirsch, white pep­per, pome­gran­ate, straw­ber­ries, and milk choco­late. The 2020 vin­tage was hot and our Grenache vines and fruit loved it, pro­duc­ing a gor­geous crop of epic fruit. Full, lush, and down­right sexy on the palate, this wine is a knockout! 

Drink: 2022 — 2032 | 380 Cas­es Pro­duced | Los Olivos Dis­trict AVA

Retail: $56


2019 TLB

Dense, pen­e­trat­ing aro­mas of black­ber­ry, dark cher­ry, mocha, earth, and choco­late are com­plex and lay­ered in the 2019 TLB. The mouth is dark and dense as the 85% Caber­net fruit mix­es with the 15% Syrah, show­ing rich notes of plum, black­ber­ry, choco­late, men­thol, and a hint of spice. The fine tan­nins frame the bold fla­vors across a long fin­ish where the fla­vors con­tin­ue to deliv­er. Drink this now and over the next 20+ years! 

Drink: 2022 — 2042 | 450 Cas­es Pro­duced | Los Olivos Dis­trict AVA

Retail: $75


2019 EXP Aggregate

Dark and deep aro­mas and fla­vors of black and blue fruits, spice, and mocha high­light this seam­less blend of all our bar­rels pro­duced in 2019; a blend of 39% Grenache, 38% Syrah, 20% Caber­net, 1% Mourve­dre, 1% Counoise, and 1% Mer­lot. Open, round, and ele­gant, this deli­cious blend is ready to con­sume now and over the next decade. One of the most fun EXP wines we make every year; drink this now and over the next 7 – 10 years!
