2015 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Vinous: "One of the highlights in this tasting, the 2015 Monte Bello will soon take its place among the greatest Monte Bellos ever made. Powerful, deep and explosive, the 2015 possesses magnificent concentration and richness in every dimension. Even with all of its raciness, the 2015 has terrific aromatic presence and regal tannins. The 2015 is a bit less showy than it has been in the past, but it was also just bottled two weeks before this tasting. Readers who own it will be absolutely thrilled. (AG) 98+" (8/2017)

2014 Mindego Ridge "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay is one of the most distinctive wines being made in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Graphite, smoke, peach, mint and honey give the 2014 much of its exotic flair. Dramatic in both its flavors and phenolic intensity, the 2014 is absolutely gorgeous. The aromatics are slightly reductive, so I would give the 2014 a good bit of air. There is no question the 2014 is a stunning wine, although it shows the most extroverted, flamboyant side of what is possible in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

2013 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is developing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cassis, tobacco, bay laurel, dark chocolate and rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, multidimensional and concentrated, with wonderful savory depth, fine grained but firm tannins and a long, taut and tangy finish. While this is firmly shut down today, its potential for the future is fully evident: expect it to begin to come into its own around its tenth birthday.

2014 Mindego Ridge "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

95 points Vinous: "As good as the Chardonnay is in 2014, the Pinot Noir is even better. Rich, dramatic and full-bodied, yet with remarkable translucence, the 2014 takes hold of all the senses and never lets up. Violet, lavender, mint, dark spice and leather come together in a crescendo of aromas, flavors and textures that is hard to describe. Readers who can find the 2014 should not hesitate.

2013 Thomas Fogarty Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice and #14 in Best 100 of 2016* From one of the preeminent Chardonnay producers in the country comes their least expensive yet perhaps most stunning bottling, showing strong lemon rind, sea salt, Gravenstein apple and a floral touch of honeysuckle on the nose. The wondrously zippy and saline palate is framed by a grippy, grapefruit-rind-led tension, but opens just enough to allow the slightest hints of lemon curd and delicate marzipan warmth. (MK)" (9/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Fogarty's 2013 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains is delicate and beautifully layered in ...Read More »

2013 Thomas Fogarty Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Though not one of the producer's single-vineyard bottlings, this estate blend manages to stun the nose and palate nonetheless. Tart mulberry, Kalamata olive, hibiscus, rose hips, red plum and sandalwood aromas wrestle attention immediately, then the sip delivers bergamot, cedar ash, exotic cranberry and rosemary depth. It delivers an excellent combination of wood, fruit and herb. (MK)" (10/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A killer value, there’s roughly 4,000 cases of the 2013 Pinot Noir from the Santa Cruz Mountains, and it saw 33% whole clusters and 11 months in ...Read More »

2013 Varner "Hidden Block-Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Hidden Block is a very pretty, lifted wine. Sweet red cherry, mint and floral notes grace the palate in an understated, surprisingly gracious Pinot from the Varner brothers. The Hidden Block is one of the more delicate, acid-driven Pinots I have tasted from Varner. This is the first block that is picked, which likely contributes to the wine's laid-back personality and expressive aromatics. I have to admit, my most recent tasting with Bob and Jim Varner was bittersweet. The Varners have ended their collaboration with the Neely family, ...Read More »

2014 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay Estate from Mount Eden is terrific, offering up a youthful bouquet of buttered apples, pear, toasted nuts and brioche that reveals more and more nuance as it sits in the glass. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, pure and racy, with a satiny attack, deep core and bright acids. The finish is long and mouthwateringly chalky. This is one of the best recent releases of the Estate Chardonnay, and it comes warmly recommended." 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Chardonnay Estate comes from 43% of the average yields (it was a tiny crop due to the drought) and was b ...Read More »

2013 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the latest release Chardonnays, the 2013 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is a screaming effort that got a few wows in the notes. More ripe and rounded than the Alpine Vineyard (at the moment anyways, as Kevin commented that this cuvee continues to pick up more and more focus with bottle age), its light/medium gold color is followed by tons of ripe white peach and orchard fruits, toasted nuts, crushed rock and white flowers. Rounded, concentrated and rich on the palate, yet with vibrant underlying acidity that cuts through the finish, give it ...Read More »

Those deep fruits and exotic spices show on the sip as well, where a tense acidity leads into a tart cherry finish." (10/2017)

2014 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Seeing one-third whole clusters and 12 months in barrel, the 2014 Pinot Noir Estate has a subtle, nuanced style as well as terrific notes of dried strawberries, red currants, spice-box and forest floor. It's elegant, seamless and silky on the palate, with fine tannin and impeccable balance. Give it a few years to develop more complexity (although I'd happily drink it today) and it's going to keep for 10-15+ years."

Pliant, open-knit and super-expressive, Ridge's Merlot is a terrific choice for readers who are just starting to get to know the Ridge wines, as it can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. What a joy it is to taste the 2014 today. Sadly, there will be no 2015, as yields were punishingly low.

It's a lighter style on the palate, with bright red plums, crushed river rock and a good helping of herb flavors." K&L Notes: Winemaker's notes: "Own rooted, ninety-three year-old vine Zinfandel from a cool spot up against the Santa Cruz Mountains.

2014 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay Estate opens with inviting aromatics. Bright, floral and nuanced, the 2014 offers striking complexity and energy. There is a hint of reduction, but that is not a negative. Readers who enjoy focused Chardonnays will find much to admire in the 2014. This is a gorgeous wine from Ridge. Lemon, white pepper and mint add the closing layers of nuance. In 2014, Ridge bottled less of their Monte Bello Chardonnay than the norm, which may be one of the reasons the Estate is so expressive.

Raspberry jam, pomegranate, white flowers, mint and spices are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. A wine with a distinctly red-hued profile, silky tannins, no hard edges and exceptional overall balance, the 2012 Monte Bello is simply magnificent.

Osocalis Rare Alambic California Brandy (750ml)

Osocalis is a small, artisanal distillery in Soquel, California. The name Osocalis is the original Native American name for Soquel, today part of the greater Santa Cruz area. They use a small (100-gallon) antique alambic Charentais still, imported from Cognac, to produce brandies using grapes and apples from the cooler coastal regions of California. They strive to create products that have the length, elegance and finesse of old world brandies, such as Cognac and Calvados, but with the fruit intensity and structure of California wines.

Redwoods, coastal shrubs, and pines fill out the borders. The 2015 vintage presented two challenges: the severe drought and two anomalous rainstorms that came during flowering and during set resulting in a dramatic drop in yield.

Winemaker's Notes: "In the South Eastern slopes in the Santa Cruz Mountain range - almost at Gilroy - This little 5 acre vineyard parcel of 50yr old vines on the southern border of the larger "Bates Ranch" on the backside of Mt. Madonna is dry farmed, own rooted and head trained. The vineyard does not look "conventional". Ian had his eyes on it - and he was right - the wine is fantastic.
