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 Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay Top Pick!
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 »

2014 Mindego Ridge "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay Top Pick!
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.

2015 La Honda "Sequence" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "There are a lot of intriguing and unique aromas on the nose of this bottling, from candied pomegranate and wild blueberry to olive, rosewater, cinnamon and carnation. Those deep fruits and exotic spices show on the sip as well, where a tense acidity leads into a tart cherry finish." (10/2017) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Beautiful bright red fruits; elegant aromatics of pomegranate blueberry and earthtones of strawberry rhubarb pie.

2014 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Vinous: "One of the many highlights in this range, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is terrific. The effects of the drought and resulting heat stress come through in the wine's structural feel and bold, incisive flavors. Even with all of its intensity, the 2014 has a certain silkiness in its tannins that makes it approachable today. Of course, the 2014 will be even better in another few years, but opening a bottle on the early side is not a crime. The 2014 spent 27 months in French oak.

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.

Consistently one of the most ageworthy Cabernets in California, gaining in volume and expansiveness with time in the cellar, always vibrant and intense." (9/2016) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "There’s an unparalleled woody intensity on the nose of this offering, with cigar box, myrrh, incense and bay leaf decorating the black peppercorn, herb-laced salt, dark chocolate and black plum aromas.

Including 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, it shows savory black plum, black pepper, char, leather and dried herb aromas on the nose.

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

92 points Vinous: "Sweet dark cherry, menthol, pine, licorice and dark spices are all infused in the 2013 Pinot Noir Picnic Block. 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. (AG)" (7/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Neely Picnic Block comes from loamy, porous s ...Read More »

The simply gorgeous bouquet jumps from the glass in a complex blend of sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, espresso, stony soil tones, sarsaparilla, fine herbs and a gentle touch of new wood.

2013 Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard "Bailey's Branciforte Ridge" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

From a high elevation vineyard planted with Dijon clones in 1999, and a winery that's been quietly operating since 1975, first in the Santa Cruz Mountains and since 2008 in Santa Cruz's westside winery district. The winery's tasting note: "Our 2013 has incredible depth and density compared to Pinot Noirs from other regions. There is a very rich and deep fruit component along with a lot of the earth and spice of the Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation Pinots.

2014 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

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 barrel fermented in 70% new French oak and aged 10 months on lees before bottling. It’s another youthful, slightly reserved Chardonnay that's going to benefit from cellaring. Brioche, buttered citrus, almond paste and honeysuckle all give way to a beautifully balanced, layered, rich effort that has vibrant acidity as well.

2013 Thomas Fogarty Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

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.

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.

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)

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.

The bouquet seems a tad more marked by its new wood than most of these other single vineyard bottlings, but this is just the stage the wine is in today. The nose is a fine blend of cassis, black cherries, a touch of chicory, dark soil tones, espresso, mustard seed and cedar.

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.
