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

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting out slightly reductive, the 2012 Pinot Noir Hidden Block Spring Ridge Vineyard opens up nicely with air and shows lots of forest floor, currants, mushroom and earth in a medium-bodied, supple, nicely textured and balanced package. 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. Some of my favorite Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays in California come from Jim and Bob Varner. As I wrote last year, all of these releases come from the estate S ...Read More »

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

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering more minerality, with lots of toasted spice, dried earth and wild strawberry aromas and flavors, the 2012 Pinot Noir Upper Picnic Block Spring Ridge Vineyard is another red from the Varner brothers that has a rocking core of sweet fruit, a balanced, harmonious personality and a great finish. While it has solid acidity and tannin structure, everything is nicely integrated and it should drink nicely for upwards of a decade.

2011 Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Vinous: "Domaine Eden's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, from vineyards in Saratoga and Los Gatos, is wonderfully fleshy and open in the glass. Sweet red cherry, plum, savory herb, menthol and floral notes all meld together in a tasty, foreword Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next handful of years. There is plenty to like here, including the wine's inviting personality and impeccable balance. Domaine Eden is Mount Eden's sister estate.

2012 Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Chardonnay is a beautiful, open-knit wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Hints of orange peel and mint add character to this classy, understated Chardonnay. The style is all about textural softness and polish. The 2012 is about 60% declassified juice from the Mount Eden program and 40% juice from the Domaine Eden property itself. Jeffrey Patterson is one of the most soft-spoken winemakers in California, but don't let that fool you; he is a man of deeply held convictions, with strong views that inform all of his wines.

2013 Varner "Home Block-Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

96 points Vinous: "A big, powerful wine, the 2013 Chardonnay Home Block hits the palate with serious depth. The flavors are bright and focused throughout, but it is the wine's phenolic intensity that really stands out today. Orchard fruit, white flowers, pepper and mint all lend an element of freshness to the vivacious, structured finish. This is a superb showing from the Varner brothers.

2010 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Most of the fruit for this restrained, savory Cabernet comes from cuttings Emmett Rixford purportedly sourced from Château Margaux in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated his own cuttings from that selection to plant in this vineyard's shallow, shale-laced soils at 1,800 feet of elevation in the 1940s and 50s, and later Jeffrey Patterson replanted it in the 1980s with a selection from those vines.

2013 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

92 points Vinous: "The 2013 Chardonnay Estate is classy, understated and polished. Lemon peel, yellow orchard fruit, mint and a gentle hint of spice open up in the glass. A hint of reduction typical of the Ridge Chardonnays is present, which means readers should either cellar the 2013 for at least a few years or give it a good deal of aeration.

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

The Ghostwriter is about Santa Cruz and it’s many terroirs, old heritage vineyards, and the light, acid driven, pretty, perfumey style of wine that it is capable of.

2010 Mount Eden "Reserve" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

It offers rocking notes of ripe orchard fruits, honeysuckle, orange blossom and vanilla cream on the nose.

2009 Mount Eden "Reserve" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

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.

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Ridge "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (97JS, 94ST, 94W&S, 92RP, 92WS). James Suckling: "Blueberries, currants and flowers. The nose just pops out. Intense. Full body, with a round and velvety tannin structure and lots of currants, ripe strawberries. Very intense every. Black pepper at the finish. Muscular yet toned. Very structured yet balanced. This needs a minimum of four to five years of aging. Paul Draper says that perhaps this is as great as the legendary 1991. Made for aging." (05/2012)

2007 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a big, vital Chardonnay brimming with fresh acids and oak, whose underlying pineapple, pear and lemon-lime flavors are delicious. Despite the richness, it's dry and crisp in acidity, with a minerally tang. Drink now." (2/2011) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Mount Eden 2007 Chardonnay Estate (normal release) comes across as quite lush and fat relative to the Reserve tasted alongside it.
