93 points Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard takes shape beautifully in the glass, with layers of bright red fruits, flowers, spices and tobacco. It is an impeccable, polished wine from start to finish. This is one of the wines that shows more stem character than some of the others. A textured, multi-dimensional finish of considerable elegance sets the Mills Vineyard apart. (AG)" (08/2011) 92 points Vinous: "Vivid red. Deep strawberry and raspberry aromas are complicated by of rose, cinnamon and musky herbs. Sappy and precise on the pal...

93 points Burghound: "Here too the cool and restrained nose is wonderfully perfumed with its array of spice and floral elements adding excellent breadth to the essence of red currant, pomegranate and sandalwood scents. The gorgeously textured, intense and detailed medium weight plus flavors possess evident muscle, punch and power where the latter really comes up on the firm and tightly wound finish that once again delivers sneaky good length. This is not as refined as either of the two Alpine entries but it's bigger, indeed to the point of being robust. ...

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." (02/2019) 94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard is beautifully lifted and precise. Bright red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely layered in a Pinot that speak...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard is another head-turner and offers complex red fruits, white flowers, pepper, and floral notes as well as incredible balance and purity on the palate. About as seamless as they come, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a layered texture, and a great finish. As with most of these 2016s, it has some accessibility today, yet it’s going to age gracefully on its balance and overall harmony." (02/2019) 95 points John Gilman: "The 2016 Alpine Vineyard from Rhys is a gorgeous Pinot Noir in the making. The ...

95 points Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Mt. Pajaro Vineyard is a dark, dense beauty. Black cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, spice, leather and menthol all flesh out in a somber, potent wine built on serious concentration. This decidedly virile Pinot needs time to come around. Today, it is somewhat of a brute, but it is nevertheless a remarkable wine from young vines that were only planted in 2011.

95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Swan Terrace is one of the most intriguing wines in this range. Intensely aromatic overtones, with touches of blood orange and racy red berry fruit infuse the 2017 with an exotic quality that is hard to fully describe with words. The 100% whole clusters work so well in bringing out the wine's myriad layers. A few years in bottle will help the tannins soften. This is such a beguiling, alluring wine.

95 points Wine Advocate: "More lean and racy than the Apline Vineyard, the 2012 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard has thrilling Chablis-like minerality and green citrus to go with lots of lemon curd, mint and hints of sappy flowers. Not quite as broad shouldered as the Alpine Vineyard, yet just as pure, precise and layered, this is another thrilling Chardonnay from this team that will have 10-15 years (or more) of longevity. (JD)" (04/2015) 95 points Vinous: "Rich, oily and viscous on the palate, the 2014 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is all about texture....

2016 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay
Back In Stock!
96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As always, the 2016 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is the most masculine and mineral-driven, with an exotic bouquet of white flowers, iodine, crushed rocks, and stone fruits. Reductive, concentrated, and powerful on the palate, with medium to full-bodied richness, it’s a brilliant vintage from this vineyard and is a world-class Chardonnay in every way."

96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard is a magical wine. Interestingly, the Syrah shares much with the Pinot off this site in its structural feel and dark flavor profile. Inky blue/purplish fruit, herbs, crème de cassis, spice, lavender and mint are all beautifully delineated. Beams of supporting tannin give the wine its shape and overall intensity, yet the 2014 retains a super-classic, Santa Cruz Mountains feel of almost deceptively mid-weight structure. The 2014 was done with 100% whole clusters. Malolactic fermentation was done in steel...

95 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Alpine Vineyard bottling is perhaps the lowest octane Pinot Noir in the Rhys lineup this year, tipping the scales at a svelte 12.6 percent. The bouquet is extremely precise and flat out gorgeous, wafting from the glass in a mix of sweet dark berries, black cherries, raw cocoa, beautiful minerality, woodsmoke, a touch of incipient cola notes, sweet stem notes of fresh nutmeg and Ceylon cinnamon and a discreet foundation of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, pure, full-bodied and pulled taut across its structural s...

94 points Vinous: "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine to focus on in this range in 2018. Dark and brooding, the 2018 is such a classic Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet. It offers up copious black fruit, dried herbs, chocolate, lavender and underbrush, all in a super-classic, mid-weight style that is hugely appealing. This might very well be the best value in artisan, high-end California Cabernet.

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is also world class. Slightly more aromatic and exuberant than the Alpine Vineyard, yet with slightly less density on the palate, it gives up a masculine, mineral-laced style in its orchard fruits, fennel, wet stone, campsite and citrus aromas and flavors."

The Assiduous wines are a perfect example of how non-interventionist, or so-called “hands-off” winemaking is actually very much hands-on! With a guiding principle of less is more when it comes to manipulative winemaking, Keegan Mayo is essentially making natural wines, but is not dogmatic about the process and not entirely comfortable with the label. His assiduous work in the vineyard and cellar means the wines are remarkably clean, pure and precise, traits not always found in this genre of wine.

This Cornas look-alike will shine for 10-15 years, if not longer. " (07/2021) 95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard is remarkably elegant.

Winemaker Keegan Mayo was born in Hawai'i, but grew up in Santa Cruz, where he started learning about local wine culture. He says his goal with Assiduous is "to create savory wines that have a sense of place. Wine grapes truly are a product of their environment so why not let that be what it in each glass? When picking a wine growing site I usually look to some sort of outlier soil or climate factor to achieve a uniqueness in the wine. At Assiduous, whether in the vineyard or in the cellar, 'less is more' is the approach that has always been taken."

This medium-bodied, elegant, beautifully balanced Chardonnay has nicely integrated acidity, a great mid-palate, and a crisp, layered finish. I don't expect it to have the same longevity as the top Rhys Chardonnay, but wow, what a classy, elegant Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 3-5 years.

2018 Big Basin Vineyards "Lester Family Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $55) (Elsewhere $55)
Top Pick!
94 points Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Lester Family Vineyard is fabulous. The best elements of the Big Basin style come together in a Pinot that has it all: soaring aromatics, deep fruit and plenty of backing structure. Some of the 2018 Pinots are quite giving today, but not the Lester. It needs at least a few years in bottle to fully come together. Dark, brooding and mysterious, the 2018 will have much to say when the time comes.

96 points Decanter: "True to the vineyard’s mountain site, up to 814m (2,670ft} in altitude, exposed to the cold Pacific, the wine has vivid cassis purity and a touch of green sage. 16 months in 58% new American oak may have rounded the edges of the wine, but none of that oak shows up in the wine’s flavour—exquisite structure and balance. Ridge’s Estate Cabernets come from old blocks in the Monte Bello Vineyard, but blocks that Paul Draper and John Olney feel tend to produce a wine that’s more accessible young than the blocks used for Ridge’s top wine, M...

It offers a complex, nuanced style that carries lots of spiced red fruits, forest floor, smoked earth, potpourri, and a touch of sassafras and sagebrush.

Some years the differences are easy to spot, some years, not so much. In 2017, the differences between the base cuvée and the Hillside are easy to spot. The 2017 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard Hillside is a clear step up over the base cuvée and, I'd wager, one of the Pinot Noirs of the vintage.
