93pointsAnn Albert 2017 Martian Ranch Gamay Noir (Santa Barbara County)

Editors' Choice

This bottling by Talley winemaker Eric Johnson of a grape that shows incredible promise in this region slowly opens on the nose with aromas of fresh cranberry, wet gravel, lanolin and tart red plum. It's tightly wound on the palate, and spread its wings over the hours and days that it's opened into flavors of bright red currant, rainy cement and crushed stone. Matt Kettmann
