2014 Varner "Hidden Block - Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (Previously $45) (Previously $45)
Top Pick!
93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Hidden Block is the most immediate and dense of the four Pinots in the Varner range. A core of sweet red cherry and plum fruit fills out the wine's mid-weight frame effortlessly. Round, pliant and totally seductive, the 2014 has a lot to offer, including tons of near and medium-term appeal. (AG)" (08/2018) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Mostly destemmed and brought up in 25% new French oak, the medium ruby-colored 2014 Pinot Noir Hidden Block Spring Ridge Vineyard reveals a medium ruby color as well as impressive red and...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a sharply mineral focus to the nose of this bottling, which shows aromas of wet gravel alongside lemon peel, lemon blossoms and a touch of ripe nectarine. It's very grippy on the palate, where chalky texture and flavors unveil lemon pith, river water and kumquat flavors. (MK)" (07/2019) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chardonnay Bald Mountain Vineyard comes from 27-year-old vines planted at 920-1,050 feet. Grapes were harvested September 20 and it aged in 20% new French oak. The nose opens with sc...

Betwixt Wines are makers of wines produced in small lots in San Francisco. Their goal is to create authentic wines that are defined by nature, not humans. By leaving behind preconceptions about what great wines are, they free themselves to create wines that are truly expressive of time and place. Minimalist winemaking techniques are central to their overall approach. Winemaker Tim Telli does as little as possible to the grapes and allows native fermentations to take place after cold soaking periods of up to a week. Wines are gently pressed and then lef...

Winemaker's Notes: "The grapes were hand harvested at 22.8° Brix. During the fermentation 25% whole clusters were used and the rest was de-stemmed. Indigenous yeasts and bacteria carried out both primary and secondary fermentations. The wine was aged in 25% New French oak for 18 months. Note that relatively speaking 18 months in barrel is a long ageing time for pinot noir. Regan vineyard is in the cooler area of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA which lends to a pinot noir with high acidity, extended barrel ageing is needed to calm the wine down and get it ...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chardonnay was aged a year in 20% new French oak barrels and an additional six months in stainless steel. It opens to aromas of toast and baklava—pistachio, honey and pastry—with notes of oats, Golden Delicious apple and baked quince. The palate is medium-bodied, rounded and savory, lifted by citrusy accents and tangy acidity, finishing long, savory and textured. Yum! (EB)" (02/2020) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Rich and toasty, this wine’s smoky notes and baked-apple flavors meet some tense malic acidit...

Winery notes: "Rich. Smooth. Earthy. Intense notes of black cherry and strawberry. Luxurious French oak aromas. Classic mountain-grown fruit acidity, balanced perfectly. Weight on the palate and a long finish. This is Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir. Suggested food pairings include grilled salmon, pork chops and roasted duck."

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A lively, fresh, floral, peppery and berry-fruited effort, the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains (one-third whole cluster) from the team at Fogarty is medium-bodied, elegant and impeccably put together. It opens up nicely with time in the glass, has nicely integrated acidity and clean, classy feel that will drink nicely for 4-5 years. (JD)" (10/2016) Connoisseurs Guide: "Fairly outgoing and smelling of red cherries and strawberries with accents of sweet baking spice and a slight savory touch of herbs off to ...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and notions of eucalyptus, forest floor, cool blueberries, raspberry and sweet strawberry preserves with prosciutto, faint hints of dried herbs, wild blackberries and an orange peel note. The palate is light to medium-bodied with an intense core of perfumed fruit, a soft, grainy frame and juicy acidity, finishing with pretty berry notes. (EB)" (02/2020) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "The delicacy of this Pinot Noir keeps it airy even as its red fruit satura...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'I want this to be an appellation wine,' Jeffrey Patterson says. 'This is a blend of all the Chardonnay we grow at Domaine Eden plus some declassified fruit from our Mount Eden estate, about 35% this vintage.' The 2016 Chardonnay Estate features aromas of acacia, honeyed apples, wet stone, white peach and lemon pith with notions of cheese rind and straw. Medium-bodied, it's very lively in the mouth with savory fruits, juicy acidity and a long, energetic and lightly textured finish. (EB)" (02/2020) 92 points Win...

90 points Vinous: "The 2015 Chardonnay Trout Gulch is another rich, intense wine. Here, the low yields of vintage blur the personality of the site. There is some underpinning of the salinity that makes the wines from this site so distinctive, but this is a freakishly ripe Chardonnay from Arnot-Roberts. Orange peel and exotic spice notes add to the wine's eccentric feel. The fruit was also picked a bit later than normal, because the acidity was too high for the wine's sugar ripeness. As a result, the alcohol is also a bit high by Arnot-Roberts standards. ...

If you haven’t yet heard about or tasted the wines from Cole Thomas at Madson, that’s likely because they are so tiny, many of their wines are just a barrel or two! In fact, if you look on their website, almost everything is sold out! However, once you have tasted their wines, you won’t quickly forget them. I think this young winery is crafting some of the most exciting wines in the region. Doing his apprenticeship under Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard’s winemaking legend, Jeff Emery, Cole Thomas makes his Madson bottlings in the same cellar, on Ingalls St...

William Kelley writes: "The gregarious and dedicated Richard Alfaro is quietly making some very good Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at his Corralitos winery, and his modest prices make these true values in the world of California wine. Readers may already know his work, as he's the farmer of Trout Gulch Vineyard, source of Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for Sonoma County-based labels such as Kutch, Ceritas and Arnot-Roberts. But his own wines are well worth a look and come warmly recommended."

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Alesia Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains is superb, unfurling in the glass with notes of fresh pear, preserved citrus, lemon oil and a light framing of smoky reduction. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, concentrated and tensile, built around a racy line of acidity and concluding with a saline finish that's almost searingly stony. This represents a notable change of pace after the more rounded, giving Anderson Valley Alesia bottling and marks this out as one of the keenest values in the Rhys portfol...

2018 Sante Arcangeli "Integrato" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Integrato is a barrel selection aged ten months in 20% new French oak. It's pale to medium ruby with lovely scents of rose petals, strawberry and raspberry preserves, rhubarb, pomegranate and crushed red and black cherries with accents of loam, peppercorn and prosciutto. Medium-bodied, it explodes with red berries flavors and oodles of earthy accents. It has a grainy texture and excellent freshness, finishing long and very flavorful. Yes!

About this producer: "Bargetto Winery has produced hand-crafted wines in the Santa Cruz Mountains since 1933 and specializes in estate grown varietals from our Regan Estate Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains, overlooking the beautiful Monterey Bay. The mountainous, cool climate region is host to low-yielding vineyards which produce wines of richness and intensity. Bargetto Winery produces Pinot Noir, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and several Italian varietals."

Winemaker notes: "The 2018 Reserve Chardonnay is a blend of two clones of Chardonnay from our estate vineyard. Clone 4 tends to be ripe and rich, with tropical fruit characteristics. The Mount Eden Clone expresses more minerality and vibrant acidity. Each barrel is carefully tasted and rated, and only the very best barrels make the Reserve blend. Pleasant aromas of butterscotch and caramel dominate the nose, with hints of citrus and stone fruits underneath. Lime zest, green apple, and various tropical fruit notes are present on the palate. A health...

94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Pinot Noir is fabulous. The decision to use 50% whole clusters, almost by necessity in 2015, resulted in a Pinot that is both rich in fruit and also aromatically lifted, not to mention also quite a bit more expressive of this site and the Santa Cruz Mountains more broadly. Deep and plush, as the wines from this site can be, but not at all heavy, Mindego Ridge's 2015 Pinot Noir is a total knock out. The saline-infused finish offers a compelling counter to the intense, pliant fruit. The whole clusters are very nicely integrated,...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A step up over the Anderson Valley release, the 2016 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains Alesia gets fruit from five of the six single vineyards (no Skyline fruit) and it offers a sensational bouquet of ripe cherries, currants, rose petals, conifer trees, and sappy flowers. Complex, medium-bodied, elegant, and seamless, it’s a beautiful, beautiful wine that unquestionably plays in the same league as the single vineyards."

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains Alesia has a touch more depth in its aromas and flavors, offering a ripe bouquet of citrus blossom, honeysuckle, peach, and orange blossoms. Medium-bodied, rounded, and layered, with a terrific mid-palate, it packs plenty of muscle while staying beautifully balanced. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years."

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""It's very unusual for us to release this so early," Jeffrey Patterson explains. "We are releasing it sooner than usual because it's a great value for wine lists, sort of our mid-appellation wine." This vintage, the blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petite Verdot and 1% Malbec. Medium to deep ruby, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a very minerally nose of crushed stone, dusty earth, warm red cherries, woodsmoke and savory/herbal hints with notions of charcuterie, warm blackberries,...

From the winery: "A 50/50 blend of two personalities of syrah: the extremely cool-climate and coastal Gali vineyard, and the warmer, high elevation Zayante vineyard. These components come together to exude the spicy, floral, and feminine side of syrah. Gali is located in the Corralitos sub-district of the southern Santa Cruz Mountains. At the low elevation of 400 feet and approximately six miles from the ocean, this is one of the coolest sites in our lineup. Soils are clay loam weathered from sandstone and shale, formed on ancient submarine terraces. Tho...

Arnot-Roberts Wines is a small Californian wine producer and a joint project of schoolhood friends, Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Together with a small group of fellow trailblazers, they have led the way to help re-define the paradigm of what California wine can be and taste like. The main focus is on Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. Some of the wines are made from several other less common grape varieties like Trousseau and Ribolla. Since founding their winery in 2001, the duo has been one of the most progressive and ...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Though much lower in price than the single vineyard offerings—and without the microchip on the label—this bottling carries all of the earthy aspects that characterize this iconoclastic winery. Umami aromas of nori wrap meet with dried purple flowers and blackberry on the nose. The mouthfeel is soft and full, with flavors full of loam, beet juice, incense and crushed boysenberry. *Editors' Choice* (WK)" (06/2017) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Starts out juicy and lively, featuring black cherry and raspberry notes at the core.

Nine of the twelve parcels of Chardonnay vines on the Monte Bello property were selected for the 2017 "Estate" bottling. Crop yields were reduced by one-quarter by some late spring rains, and the mostly foggy and cool summer ripened grapes slowly which developed full flavor with firm acidity before a heat wave over Labor Day weekend accelerated the season. Grapes were promptly hand-harvested and fermented on their native yeast. The wine was aged for 14 months in primarily air-dried American oak, which is only 10% new so that there isn't too much wood imp...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A beautiful shade of crimson-laced purple in the glass, this fresh bottling is loaded with aromas of wet slate, crushed granite, wet concrete, lavender, wisteria blossom and black plum on the nose.

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Protracted drought made for extremely low yields at this vineyard in a foggy valley on the west side of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just six miles from the ocean—and the result is a wine with a precise, concentrated freshness. At first, it feels like a well-balanced, typical California Chardonnay: warm, spicy fruit and biscuity richness. As it takes on air, it reveals more intensity and depth of flavor, building toward flashes of succulent peach flesh and stony peach pit, and the snappy spice of nectarine skin. Age it for a few y...

Highly acclaimed producers of single-vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Thomas Fogarty and his head winemaker Nathan Kandler also craft one of the most outstanding domestic sparkling wines on the market today. The "Estate" Blanc de Blanc is 100% Chardonnay sourced in nearly equal proportions from the Portola Springs and Langley Hill vineyards, two of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA's most prized sites. The cool, maritime climate and high elevation (1,900 ft. on average) are ideal for producing a vivid, racy, and structured sparkling wine with the capacity ...

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. Osocalis's first p...

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard "Bates Ranch" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon. From the winery: "We believe wine should dance with food to make the experience more than the sum of the ingredients. This means making wines with moderate alcohol and oak so that the true characteristics of the grape varieties are expressed. You won’t find any high-alcohol, jammy, oaky wines here. In 2008 we launched a second brand, Quinta Cruz, which features only varieties that originated on the Iberian Peninsula but are now grown here in California. These Portuguese and Spanish varieties include Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Souzão, Castelão and Graciano. After more-or-less hiding away in the mountains for 32 years, the winery moved to the westside of Santa Cruz in 2008 and opened our first tasting room in our long history. We are located in an area where you can walk to many other tasting rooms nearby and are only a few blocks from the beach and Natural
