The Tom Hill Archives
The Los Olivos Wine & Spirits Emporium
presents the musings and reflections of Tom Hill. We think it's great that
Tom, who has sampled so many wines, has shared his tasting notes with us.
We do have, or have had for sale a few of the wines Tom writes about, and
we include a link to our stock page whenever it is a producer we carry
(but since the stock page is kept up-to-date and the wines are sold, don't
expect any but the newest of wines to show up in our stock!). Mostly though,
since we specialize in County of Santa Barbara Wine and Central Coast Wine,
we don't carry a lot of the wines Tom writes about. But we think it is
important that you be able to have an idea what they're like in case you
are planning to buy some somewhere, or have them in your own collection.
Here are Tom's notes from April 10, 2002:
