Sevtap 2012 Awesome Rosé Sangiovese (Santa Ynez Valley)
87POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

Nearly purple in color, it is equally intense in flavor, almost like sipping a straight red wine, save for the low alcohol. This bottling, made by Turkish-born, former oil rig construction worker Ertugrul “Art” Sevtap, begins with candied pecans and other nutty aromas, then brings red apple, light herbals, and hazelnut to the palate. Pair with everything from cedar plank salmon to turkey burgers.


Sevtap 2012 Wish You Were Here Sangiovese (Santa Ynez Valley)
88POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

Dark plum, cracked clove, tart berry and a bit of rockiness kick off this wine from tour operator-turned-winemaker Art Sevtap. Tart and tannic, flavors range from cranberry to raspberry. The wine would go well alongside pasta with red sauce or chicken enchiladas.


Sevtap 2012 Istanbul Sauvignon Blanc (Santa Ynez Valley)
90POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

Istanbul native Ertugrul “Art” Sevtap is former underwater oil worker and wine tour guide who started his own label in 2008 and makes a passion-driven line of wines. This Sauvignon Blanc, named after his hometown, offers nicely rounded melon aromas with saffron, toasted herbs and spiced nuts, scents which are pleasing if not varietally typical. The amazing nose goes a tad flat on the palate, where nuttiness overwhelms the acidity. But it’s soft and massaging to the mouth, and would make great partner for a croque monsieur.


Sevtap 2012 Pillow Talk Petit Verdot (Santa Ynez Valley)
86POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

This wine is dominated by darkness, giving aromas of upturned black earth and coffee grinds. The palate trends a tad redder, with lava rocks, but the blackness returns in the form of blueberries, espresso and soil.


Sevtap 2013 Bosphorus Sauvignon Blanc (Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara)
85POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

The nose is a bit curious, with hard vanilla, smoked melon and grilled citrus. Smoke carries to the palate, with charred applewood most prominent, making for an atypical but somewhat enjoyable Sauv Blanc.


Sevtap 2012 Zig-A-Zig-Ahh Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Ynez Valley)
87POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

The nose on this wine by oil worker-turned-winemaker Ert Sevtap offers lifting aromas of blueberry and mint. The spearmint notes carry to the palate as well, which also shows blackberry fruit and roasted beef meatiness.


Sevtap 2012 Nola Merlot (Santa Ynez Valley)
87POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

Very rich aromas of cherry, blueberry syrup and hot blackberry jam-filled pastry greet the nose. So the sour cherry and tart cranberry flavors are surprising on this medium-bodied wine, which also picks up interesting peppery notes into a lingering finish.


Sevtap 2012 Je T’aime Je T’adore Malbec (Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara)
91POINTS by Wine Enthusiast

Very fresh and ripe Bing cherries, black plums and roasted figs are balanced on the nose of this wine by chopped mint. It’s elegantly complex on the palate, rising in flavor through the sip, with red cherries, purple flowers, smoked meats and a dried garlic-meets-shiitake sense of umami. Firm tannins suggest moderate ageability.
