2013 Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

93 points Vinous: "Domaine Eden's 2013 Chardonnay is subtle, poised and gracious to the core. Dried pear, dried flowers, sage, mint and chamomile grace the palate in this understated, exquisite Chardonnay. Hints of smoke, slate and dried pear reappear on the super-classic, expressive finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. Quite simply, the 2013 Domaine Eden Chardonnay is a tremendous wine for the money. In 2013, the blend is approximately 72% declassified Mt. Eden juice and 28% wine from the Domaine Eden estate proper. Jeffrey Patterson is one of the most laid back producer ...Read More »

2012 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*** Cellar Selection *** Extremely elegant and restrained at first on the nose, this bottling eventually shows gravel and crushed rocks, with hints of blackberry and forest underbrush also emerging. A very firm structure weaves together an incredibly well-integrated wine, with dense mulberry and dried-fennel notes that morph into crushed herbs with time. Drink 2018-2032.

2013 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Estate is one of the stars from the appellation, and the vintage. Offering fabulous notes of black cherries, currants, crushed rocks and sous bois, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, building tannin and a killer finish. This is a sensational Pinot Noir that can be enjoyed today, or cellared for a decade or more. Looking at the 2013s from Jeffrey Patterson, these are serious wines that need to be on your short list for purchasing, and both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are in the top handful of wines in t ...Read More »

2014 Varner "Amphitheater Block-Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay Amphitheater Block wraps around the palate with striking depth. Creamy, ample and expressive, the Amphitheater is all about texture. Orange peel, mint, graphite, candied lemon and sweet floral notes abound in this deeply nuanced Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay. There is a lot to like here. (AG)" (7/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Varner's 2014 Chardonnay Amphitheater Block Spring Ridge Vineyard spent eight months in 25% new French oak.

2013 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

The palate is very energetic and tangy, with orange peels, crushed sea shells and a touch of salt hanging from an extremely well-chiseled structure. (MK)" (11/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pure silk on the palate, the 2013 Chardonnay Estate offers textbook notes of buttered apples, brioche, toasted bread and hints of minerality to go with medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful pur ...Read More »

2013 Varner "Upper Picnic Vineyard-Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Upper Picnic is endowed with a real sense of explosive energy that elevates it in this range. The flavors are dark and intense throughout, but it is the wine's center and overall depth that are most compelling at this stage. Still quite primary, the Upper Picnic could use a few years in bottle to enter the sweet spot. The Upper Picnic offers a compelling interplay of intensity and freshness. These own-rooted vines were planted in 1981. I have to admit, my most recent tasting with Bob and Jim Varner was bittersweet. The Varners have e ...Read More »

Fresh and juicy midpalate, featuring a finish loaded with dried fig accents. (JL)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: This Chardonnay is sourced from Ridge's famed estate vineyard, Monte Bello, which has fractured limestone soils over decomposing Franciscan green stone mixed with clay and loam.

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 »

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.

2014 Trail Marker Wine Co. "Saveria Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Saveria Vineyard is a big step up from the 2013. Intensely floral and savory notes open up first, followed by generous dark red cherry, plum and spice flavors. The combination of the vintage and a bit more of a hands-off approach in the cellar has resulted in a deep, highly expressive Pinot Noir endowed with real class and personality. The inclusion of 50% whole clusters adds to the wine's aromatic and palate presence. The 2014 was not fined or filtered. Readers should expect a slightly cloudy wine. (AG)" (2/2016)

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

Deep and ample on the palate, the Picnic shows the more virile, masculine side of Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir. This is an especially dense, meaty Pinot Noir. Graphite, black pepper, game, smoke and scorched earth add the closing shades of nuance. The chewy tannins will benefit from time in bottle to soften. This is an especially big, ample Pinot from the Varners. I have to admit, my most recent tasting with Bob and Jim Varner was bitterswee ...Read More »

It's a beautiful, layered and classy wine to drink on a special occasion over the coming 5-10 years. (JD)" (9/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium, amber-edged red.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 50 Spirits of 2011* From a small family-run distillery, this blend of 'older' California brandies has a vibrant golden-orange color and a sweet apples-and-honey note. On the palate, creamy citrus flavors finish big and rich, with caramel, ginger and cinnamon notes, and a soft texture. Pair with a fruit dessert, like apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Come to think of it, this brandy would be dynamite simply poured over ice cream, too. (KN)" (12/2011) K&L Notes: Brand new from the local legend of Osocalis (based in the Santa Cruz Mountains)!

2015 Calera Mt. Harlan Chardonnay

The Mt. Harlan Chardonnay Vineyard was planted in 1984 on the same south facing slope as the Mills Pinot Noir. This vineyard was planted on its own roots using plant material from stray Chardonnay vines that were found interspersed among the Pinot vines of the original vineyards. Each year, this vineyard yields only slightly more than 2 tons per acre of very intense flavorful Chardonnay fruit. Leaner and more mineral than a typical California Chardonnay, the wines carry a creamy texture and a leanness that are unique due to the limestone soil.
