2011 Jorian Hill Viognier Santa Ynez Valley

The cool 2011 vintage produced an impeccable expression of Viognier filled with inviting floral aromas, a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel and lovely stone fruit flavors. On the nose, layers of honeysuckle and orange blossom mingle with biscotti and sweet cream notes. Lush and pure white peach flavors glide across the palate. Though this wine is full and complex, enlivening acidity adds lightness and poise, making this a great food wine.

2012 Jorian Hill "Hope Springs Eternal" Rosé Santa Ynez Valley

This wine reflects a careful selection of our Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre lots most suited to creating a bright, floral rosé with excellent purity of fruit. Practically speaking, this means that these lots generally came in with lower sugar, higher acids and lower pH, qualities that reinforce the lithe and lively character of a great rosé.

The 2012 vintage was perfect for making a pure and poised dry rosé. The color of a fresh cut watermelon, this inviting wine reveals lovely layers of ripe summer strawberries, cool wet stone, sandalwood and saltwater taffy. An early pick of Grenache for this wine, combined with a second lot which was allowed additional ripening, has yielded a rosé that is light on its feet, without sacrificing depth and complexity. The finish is filled with sweet fruit, mouthwatering acidity and a mineral snap.

2010 Jorian Hill BEEspoke Blend

Inspired by the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this blend highlights prized lots of estate-grown Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre to achieve a layered expression of Jorian Hill winemaking. Aromatically, it shows off all three varietals, wrapping Syrah's smokier side and Grenache's vibrant red fruit in a leather jacket of Mourvèdre. On the palate, it displays lovely raspberry and strawberry elements, as well as sophisticated layers of leather and fresh-tilled earth. The cool 2010 vintage produced a slightly lower alcohol. At the same time, there is a lush purity and concentration from the low yields that make this wine robust and deliciously approachable after a brief decanting.

2010 Jorian Hill Syrah

From its deep purple color to its alluring Syrah aromas of blackberry, smoke, spice, espresso and wild game, there is a voluptuous concentration to this wine from the low-yielding 2010 vintage. On the palate, it is juicy and mouthcoating, but with a lively acidity that lifts the lush blue fruit flavors. The finish is fresh and long, and while chalky tannins bode well for a long life, the wine's purity and charm make it remarkably approachable in its youth.

2009 Jorian Hill "Hope Springs Eternal" Rosé Santa Ynez Valley

This wine reflects a careful selection of our Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre lots most suited to creating a bright, floral rosé with excellent purity of fruit. Practically speaking, this means that these lots generally came in with lower sugar, higher acids and lower pH, qualities that reinforce the lithe and lively character of a great rosé.

We think this is the best rosé we have ever made. In the glass, this enticing wine is the vibrant bright-pink color of a fresh cut watermelon. From this inviting starting point, the wine reveals lovely layers of ripe summer strawberries, cool wet stone, sandalwood and saltwater taffy. In 2009, we added a small amount of Mourvèdre to our Syrah and Grenache rosé lots to add color, complexity and structure. The result is a wine that has both depth and lightness, with sweet fruit, mouthwatering acidity and a mineral snap.

2009 Jorian Hill BEEspoke Blend

Inspired by the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this blend highlights prized lots of estate-grown Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre to achieve a layered expression of Jorian Hill winemaking. Aromatically, it shows off all three varietals, wrapping Syrah's dark berry richness and Grenache's vibrant red fruit in a leather jacket of Mourvèdre. On the palate, it displays lovely pomegranate, raspberry and strawberry elements, as well as darker fruit notes and a dash of Mourvèdre's spice. Excellent acidity, youthful, chewy tannins and a streak of minerality add structure and sophistication that bodes well for long-term aging.

2009 Jorian Hill Syrah

Syrah from the Central Coast never has a problem with color and this wine is no exception. It shows a youthful dark purple core with a beautiful rich raspberry rim. Aromatically pleasing, it offers juicy blackberry and raspberry jam notes as well as hints of smokiness and pepper. On the palate, this Syrah shows lush, mouthcoating flavors of bright cherry and raspberry. A subtle impression of sweet French oak is nicely balanced by crisp acidity and youthful, chalky tannins. Though drinking beautifully now, this Syrah has the depth and structure to age gracefully for many years.
