2013 Varner "Amphitheater Block - Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay (Previously $48) Top Pick!
2013 Varner "Amphitheater Block - Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay (Previously $48)

95 points Vinous: "Varner's Chardonnay Amphitheater Block is rich, ample and super-expressive. Lemon peel, almonds, chamomile, earthiness, dried apricot and sage meld together effortlessly. The 2013 Amphitheater is a classic Varner Chardonnay built on phenolic intensity and plenty of savory/floral notes that add nuance, while the fruit is pushed a bit into the background. Bob and Jim Varner have turned out another magnificent set of wines at Varner and Neely. Vintage 2013 appears to have favored the Chardonnays - which are truly superb - over the Pinots.

2014 Martin Ray "Coast Grade Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** There’s a rugged earthiness and delicious meaty character to this fantastic bottling, which shows dried cranberries, dried olallieberry, smoked pork and hummingbird sage on the brawny nose. A similar power infects the palate, where red and black cherry meet with plum, mulberry, cola, shaved chocolate and a deepening sage character, finishing on crushed mint. (VB)" (8/2016)

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

Wonderfully complete and layered, the 2014 is all about balance, harmony and proportion. Everything is in the right place.

2013 Kathryn Kennedy "Small Lot" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

Though the 2013 has yet to be professionally reviewed, the 2012 earned praise from the Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Small Lot has a subtle Bordeaux-like flair in its tobacco leaf, wild herbs, lead pencil shaving and currant-styled bouquet. This gives way to a medium-bodied, juicy, elegant and lightly textured Cabernet that has moderate to good concentration, integrated acidity and a good finish. It's a classic Bordeaux blend from this region to enjoy over the coming 6-7 years." (10/2015)

2012 Neely "Hidden Block-Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

Certainly showing the more earthy, underbrush and darker end of the spectrum, it should benefit from a year or two in the cellar and drink nicely through 2023.

2013 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94 points Vinous: "Mount Eden's 2013 Pinot Noir is going to need at least a few years to come into its own. Dense and powerful, yet also very tightly wound, the 2013 is in no mood to show all of its cards. Still, the intensity of the vintage is impossible to miss. The 35% whole clusters are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. This ample, large-scaled Pinot will reward those who wait. I will not be surprised if the 2013 is even better in another few years, as it holds considerable promise. 94+ points. (AG)" (6/2016)

It shines more for its purity and freshness than density or power, and should evolve nicely for at least a decade. (JD)" (10/2015)

Plum, black cherry, mocha, sweet herbs, cloves and violets are some of the notes that are laced into the voluptuous, racy finish.

Even with its considerable oiliness and viscosity, the 2009 retains a gorgeous sense of energy. My impression is that the 2009 is likely to age at a slightly faster pace than some of the surrounding vintages, but in exchange it will drink well with minimal cellaring.

The good news with the 2013 is that it will drink well early, but the bad news - if it can be called that - is that the wine is a bit on the overt side.

2011 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 2011 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (96W&S, (93-95RP), 94VN, 93JS). Wine & Spirits: "The cool 2011 season turned out a pristine vintage of Monte Bello, made from Cabernet (88 percent) grown on a limestone-inflected ridge high above Silicon Valley, blended with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The team at Ridge let the fruit recover for two weeks following an early October storm before picking, and were more aggressive in their extraction than normal, drawing as much color and structure as possible from the delicate fruit. The aromas revolve around oak at first—anise, wood smoke, cedar bark and cinnamon—but the wood’s contribution is fine and integrated, shading gradually toward bright fruit as the finish lengthens with floral aromas and the tang of tiny, concentrated black currants. It’s even better with a day of air, as the tannins turn to velvet, allowing red-fruited acidity to take the lead and brighten the wine’s savory, p

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A resoundingly great effort from this iconic producer, Ridge's 2001 is a spectacular, still young but promising wine... A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by extravagant, generous aromas of pen ink, lead pencil shavings, spice box and black fruits. The wine is full-bodied and silky textured, but secondary nuances have not yet begun to develop as it is still very primary, tasting more like a 3-4 year old Monte Bello than one that is ten years of age. Nevertheless, it reveals spectacular concentration, a voluptuous texture, a rare opulence for a Ridge Monte Bello, and an incredible finish. The upside is enormous and this cuvee may prove somewhat atypical due to the huge percentage of Merlot in the final blend and the higher than normal alcohol. (RP)" (06/2011)
