  • 2014 Cabernet Franc
    Our Cab Franc happily grows on a rocky, loamy cliff in our vineyard overlooking the Sisquoc River. Complex aromas of sweet berries and firm French oak combine with fat, soft tannins and a spicy slap on the finish. Enjoy with a grilled rosemary, sage and thyme rubbed pork chop.
  • 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
    Cloves and fresh baked pie are delightful on the smoky nose. Blueberries and concentrated fruit fill the palate while edgy tannins carry intense oak flavors for a bold, smooth finish. Pair with a filet mignon topped with gorgonzola cheese, followed by a rich coffee bean gelato.
  • 2013 Cellar Select Meritage
    Our showcase blend is dark and rich in color and fills the nose with an essence of blackberry and oak. Only our best grapes are used to craft this wine, delivering layers of dark, dense fruit and polished tannins that continue to open as the blend breathes, leaving a smooth finish. Decanting will only deepen the tasting experience.
  • 2014 Chardonnay
    Powerful orange blossom, pear and rose aromas blend with a rich acidity of perfumed grapefruit to fill the palate and leave lingering flavors of sweet yet rich oak on the finish. Pair this wine with roasted salmon or a rich Gruyere cheese.
  • 2014 Malbec
    Complex layers of extracted fruit and minty acid lighten on the mid palate while candied sweet oak and rich plum combine for a velvety finish. Enjoy with braised short ribs or a rich and dark chocolate truffle.
  • 2014 Merlot
    One of our flagship wines, this Merlot shows the true aroma and flavors of the ranch. Coffee, clove and cedar on the nose, followed by powerful blackberry and rich plum with lingering supple vanilla oak on the finish.
  • 2014 Pinot Noir
    Sweet oak and pepper on the nose, bright acid rounded out with white chocolate followed by smooth, opulent and balanced finish
  • 2015 Riesling
    Our Riesling vines are over 45 years old and continue to deliver uniquely mature wine. The drought stressed year pushed these vines to deliver ripe stone fruit aromas, gentle vanilla and lemon bar on the palate, and lingering honey and hints of coconut and cinnamon on the finish.
  • 2015 Sauvignon Blanc
    Our Sauvignon Blanc grows warm, long and happily, lingering on the vines to be harvested at full flavor potential, giving us this large, pure fruit forward wine. Hints of honeysuckle and fresh squeezed lemons.
  • 2015 Sisquoc River Red
    This fan favorite is a blend of each of the red grapes grown in our estate vineyards. Aromas of clean cedar and black cherry with hints of molasses and layers soft tannins on the mouth. Pairs well with Santa Maria Style BBQ.
  • 2015 Sylvaner
    Rancho Sisquoc is one of the only producers of Sylvaner in California. Soft aromas of dried apricots, fresh picked pears and hay lead to a mellow mouth feel of honey and peach pie. The soft touch of acid balances the hint of sugar to bring the delicate fruit to life. This is a perfect picnic wine and pairs wonderfully with brie and sliced pears.
  • 2014 Syrah
    Plums, cool menthol and rich oak are layered on the nose. Dark chocolate and rich burnt oak are followed by lively acidity with a finesse of integrated acid and tannin on the finish
  • 2014 Tre Vini
    Dry cherries and ripe fruit from the Sangiovese combine with spicy pepper and slight earth from the Syrah and Merlot. Overall, an interesting combination of what our vineyard has to offer.
  • Wine Club #13 Rosé “bleed”
    We produce a unique wine each year as a thank you to our valued Wine Club members. We call it our Wine Club Series. Wine Club #13 is a Rosé blend crafted using a French method called Saignée, which means "to bleed". This technique is used during the processing of both our Pinot Noir and Syrah grapes. By removing some of the juice before fermentation, the color and flavor become more intense due to higher grape to juice ratio. The Saignée juice is then fermented separately in French oak barrels and aged for nine months. The strawberry and bright fruit qualities of our Pinot Noir and the intense spice found in our Syrah are balanced on the palate with a hint of light oak.
