Review The is another terrific set of new releases from The Paring, the entry-level range from the team at Jonata and The Hilt. Line priced at $25/bottle, these are some of the very finest values readers will come across. As for the wines themselves, they are absolutely delicious. - From Santa Barbara Dreamin'… Part One (Sep 2018) by Antonio Galloni. Wine maker notes This Cabernet-inspired blend shows the sanguine, focused fruit and shapely tannins that we've come to expect from the sandy soils and slightly cooler mesoclimate of these outstanding vineyard sites. Producer The Paring has an extraordinary pedigree. Made from the vineyard blocks that are either too young or don't fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed Jonata and The Hilt wines-The Paring is essentially a "chip off the old block. The grapes are sourced primarily from three Santa Barbara regions on the vanguard: Ballard Canyon, Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley. The Paring makes its own rules. The Paring Red and Paring Sauvignon Blanc wines explore different blending opportunities where experimentations with site and varieties are key; select vineyards are defined and farmed to our rigorous standards, wine lots are blended and aged together to reach balance and enjoyment. The Paring Pinot Noir, Rose of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah wines explore different styles and vineyards: from the precise and complex Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley to the deliciously rich and versatile Syrah from Ballard Canyon. The Paring wines are for pleasure. They make every effort to strike a balance between volume, and texture, both direct results of the beautiful Santa Barbara sun and cool oceanic winds.
