94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This winery atop the mountains overlooking Silicon Valley makes amazingly earthy and age-worthy wines. This bottling's nose is soil-driven, with sun-baked loam laid across red cherry, condensed lilacs, cola and sandalwood aromas. The sip is structured firmly and strategically like the frame of a well-built home, where dark mulberry and savory spices reside. Drink now - 2028. (MK)" (06/2017)

2017 Calera "Jensen" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite in the lineup, the 2017 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is stunning in every way. Gorgeous black raspberry fruits, lots of floral, scorched earth, and sappy herb aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness, flawless balance, and a great finish all make for one of the most captivating Pinot Noirs in the vintage. It's brilliant today yet should easily evolve for 15 years or more." (09/2020) 95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is powerful and tightly wound today. That won't be an issue in a few years of cour...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark boysenberry, dried purple flowers, wet slate and a touch of bay leaf show on the nose of this thick and earthy bottling by the tech moguls T.J. and Valeta Rodgers. The mouthfeel is very chalky, and there is the winery's characteristic earthiness along with mocha and baking spice. But there are also brighter berry flavors, perhaps due to the sunnier slopes. (MK)" (06/2017)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Pinot Noir comes from a great site on the western side of the SCM and was fermented with 40% whole clusters and spent 11 months in 25% new French oak. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a rocking bouquet of ripe cherries, mulberries, leafy underbrush, blood orange, and spring flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, layered, and textured. With good acidity, present tannins, and a great finish, it has everything you could want from a Mountain Pinot Noir." (02/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very light in the glass, this wine begins with tart pomegranate and pine-needle aromas on the nose. There’s a great snap to the palate, where tangy raspberry flavors are spiced by white pepper and dried rose petals.

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 ...

About this producer: "Alex Krause and John Locke founded Birichino in Santa Cruz in 2008. Drawing on a combined four decades making wine in California, France, Italy, and beyond, they are focused on attaining the perfect balance of perfume, poise, and puckishness. Sourcing from a number of carefully farmed, family-owned, own-rooted 19th and early 20th century vineyards (and a few from the late disco era) planted by and large in more moderate, marine-influenced climates, their preoccupation is to safeguard the quality and vibrance of their raw materials. ...

97 points Vinous: "Even better than it was from barrel, the 2016 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard is a flat-out stunner. Crazy, beautiful, deeply spiced aromatics literally explode from the glass. Broad and ample on the palate, with tremendous intensity, the Horseshoe has a lot to offer. Orange peel, mint and spice overtones add an exotic flair. This is an utterly captivating Pinot Noir from Rhys. (AG)" (08/2018) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard offers a more savory, mineral style as well as terrific depth of fruit. Lots of c...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "There are three monumental wines in the lineup and the 2016 Pinot Noir Alpine Hillside is one of them. Slightly deeper colored, it tastes like the straight Alpine release, but with the intensity turned all the way up. Thrilling notes of white flowers, forest floor, crushed rocks, and both red and black fruits give way to a medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir that has perfect balance and a layered, powerful, yet incredibly elegant style on the palate. It’s one of the finest Pinot Noir to come from these magical terroirs just south of ...

94 points Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Legan Vineyard is a wine of exquisite beauty and precision. Bright red fruit, wild flowers, mint and blood orange all pulse through this taut, beautifully precise Pinot from Duncan Arnot and Nathan Roberts. All the elements are impeccably balanced throughout. Gracious and perfumed, the 2018 will drink well for a number of years. I would prefer to cellar it a bit first, although that will clearly require a bit of willpower. (AG)" (04/2020)

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Josh Jensen planted his namesake vineyard in 1975, and from the moment this wine is poured, it shows the elegance and integration of old vines. It balances subtle oak notes with whole-cluster scents, dried lavender, purple flowers and notes of fine leather. The flavors feel vinous and bright, red-cherry-scented and slightly more acid driven than the other two Calera wines reviewed here, with a sleek texture that feels cool and built to age, if you can keep your hands off it in the cellar.

91 points Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir (Santa Cruz Mountains) is bright, ethereal and beautifully lifted in the glass. Rosewater, mint, pine, sweet red cherry and orange peel give the 2018 striking aromatic presence. On the palate, the 2018 is nervy and taut, with striking energy and wonderful delineation, but the sweet Pinot fruit gradually emerges over several hours. Hints of cinnamon, star anise and touch of new oak linger. The style reminds me of the wines of northern Piedmont. The 2018 is such a pretty and inviting wine. (AG)" (09/2020) K&L Notes:...

94 points Wine & Spirits: "In a southeast-facing set of limestone hills, Mills Vineyard often yields warm and spicy fruit. In 2016 it grew a savory, generous pinot, the fruit cradled in scents of creosote and bay laurel, oak and spice, and draped in fine tannins; for pheasant. " (04/2020) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Wild cherry, thyme, sagebrush and light bay leaf aromas converge on the nose of this bottling, which is relatively mellow to start but opens considerable with patience. Roasted cherry, cherry-pit and juniper flavors align on the palate, whi...

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."

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.

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! (EB)" (02/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Less than one-third of a ton per acre came off of this nearly 35-year-old vineyard from this drought-addled vintage, but what made it to bottle is quite amazing. Aromas of earthy thyme, sagebrush, wild black cherry and cocoa are layered and elegant. The palate is rich and thoroughly engaging in flavors of roasted tomato, mulberry and purple flower. (MK)" (02/2019) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "From a southeast-facing parcel planted on limestone in the mid-1980s, this feels warmer than the wine from Ryan (also recommended in thi...

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard bristles with energy. Rose petal, mint, white pepper and blood orange give the Alpine its super-appealing aromatic upper register, but there is plenty of depth lurking beneath. Here the flavors are bright and nicely focused, while the richness of the vintage is mostly felt in the dense, potent finish. (AG)" (07/2016) 94 points John Gilman: "The 2014 Alpine Vineyard Pinot Noir from Rhys is another outstanding young bottle of Pinot, with its whole clusters showing a bit today, but all of the constitu...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains is an excellent introduction to the house style. Floral aromas lead to layers of dark red fruit in this juicy, accessible Pinot. This is the least expensive Pinot in this lineup but it offers terrific balance, and shows no ill effects whatsoever of being tasted among the vineyard-designate bottlings. Fleshy, supple and wonderfully radiant, it will also drink better young than most, if not all, of those wines. The Santa Cruz Mountains is made from barrels that didn’t make i...

Juicy dark berries, wild flowers, licorice, tar, smoke and game emerge from the glass. The balance of aromatics, fruit and structure is simply fabulous. Fans of the Rhys wines will flip over the Family Farm in 2010. (AG)" (08/2012) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling from a coastal vineyard planted in 2008 is fresh and bursting on the nose with raspberry, dark red-currant, roasted oak and sagebrush aromas. There's a wide herbal array to the palate, from marjoram to bay leaf, set against a raspberry, pomegranate and hibiscus backdrop. *Cellar Selection* (MK)" (07/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Coast Grade Vineyard comes from vines planted at 1,238-1,350 feet.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fabulous introduction to the Domaine/Mount Eden Pinots, the 2010 Pinot Noir is flat-out beautiful in the way it captures the essence of the Santa Cruz Mountains and the house style. Sweet dark cherries, flowers, mint and herbs caress the palate. There is a purity of fruit that is stunning in its beauty. Partial use of whole clusters (20%) gives the wine much of its fragrance, but ultimately the Domaine Eden bottling is all about class. At $35 it represents one of the very finest buys in Pinot Noir from anywhere...

The palate is light to medium-bodied, featuring spicy fruits and mineral nuances, with a soft frame of grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing very long and perfumed.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving south toward the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2016 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard offers a more elegant, medium-bodied, supple style as well as perfumed red fruit, dried flowers, and spice, with just a hint of minerality. This site has slightly more clay in the soils and the wine is always one of the more rounded and charming in the lineup. Nevertheless, I’ve no doubt it’s going to drink nicely for a decade."

Winemaker's Notes: "This Pinot Noir comes from Toyon Vineyard on the Santa Cruz Mountains’ southwestern slope. At 400 ft of elevation and only 3 miles from the ocean this vineyard is largely impacted by cool temperatures and cloud coverage. The vineyard is planted on Purisima formation which includes sandstone, siltstone and mudstone. We farm this vineyard 100% organically with the goal of converting to biodynamics. A melange of various clones, this cuvée fermented as 100% whole clusters, outside, in the vineyard. Because 2018 was an incredibly cold vint...

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby-red. Intensely perfumed, mineral-driven red berry, blood orange and potpourri aromas are complemented by deeper-pitched notes of cola and smoky Indian spices. Sweet, focused and light on its feet, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a silky, seamless texture. The mineral quality comes back on the endless finish, which is strikingly pure, focused and gently tannic. I was reminded of a high-end Chambolle-Musigny when I tasted this balanced but intensely flavored wine and...

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Rhys Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2012 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (95ST, 94RP, 94VN, 91BH, 90JG) and 1-bottle of 2012 Rhys "Swan Terrace" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (95JG, 95RP, 94ST, 93BH, 93VN). Of the 2012 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir,Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar writes: "Ruby-red. Explosively perfumed cherry-cola, dark berry liqueur, incense and mineral aromas show superb clarity and depth, with a sexy floral quality building with air. Offers palate-staining black raspberry and spicecake flavors that become sweeter and deeper with air. This rich but strikingly lithe and tensile pinot deftly plays power and depth off of vivacity and finishes sweet, youthfully tannic and extremely long. One of the most impressive Pinots I've tasted from the New World, or Burgundy for that matter, in quite a while. (ST)" (05/2014)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Big Basin Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir Horizontal, including 2-bottles of 2015 Big Basin "Lester Family Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (94JD, 93VN, 93WE, 92RP, 91W&S) and 2-bottles of 2015 Big Basin "Alfaro Family Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (94W&S, 93JD, 93RP, 93VN, 93WE). Of the 2015 Big Basin "Lester Family Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir,Jeb Dunnuck writes: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Lester Family Vineyard saw a touch of destemming (there’s 70% stems) and was brought up in 25% new French oak. Its medium ruby color is followed by terrific notes of red currants, raspberries, spice and underbrush aromas and flavors. Lightly textured, elegant, and silky, with impressive balance, it's a touch mid-weight, yet has impressive length on the finish. This is a beautiful Pinot Noir I suspect will evolve nicely."
