94pointsHappy Canyon Vineyard 2015 Piocho Red (Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara)

Aromas of black plum, olive and bittersweet chocolate show on the nose of this Merlot-led blend, but it is the underlying minerality of crushed rocks and turned earth that's most compelling. The palate is smooth, with everything from oak and cocoa to rose buds, violets and black currants. The tannins are expertly polished and the density is ideal. Matt Kettmann
