2013 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is developing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cassis, tobacco, bay laurel, dark chocolate and rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, multidimensional and concentrated, with wonderful savory depth, fine grained but firm tannins and a long, taut and tangy finish. While this is firmly shut down today, its potential for the future is fully evident: expect it to begin to come into its own around its tenth birthday.

2014 Varner "Upper Picnic Block - Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Wafting from the glass with notes of ripe red cherries, cassis, dried flowers and subtle hints of pencil shavings, the 2014 Pinot Noir Upper Picnic Block is beautifully supple, satiny and medium to full-bodied on the palate, with an ample and expansive core of sweet, ripe fruit that's balanced by succulent acids and plenty of incipient savory complexity. It's a beautifully balanced, giving wine and a superb valedictory vintage for the Varner brothers. Drink it now or over the next decade. (WK)" (05/2018) 95 poi ...Read More »

2016 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Estate is gorgeous. Rich, deep and pliant, the 2016 is endowed with serious structure and textural resonance. Lemon confit, white flowers, chamomile, lightly honeyed notes and a touch of reduction all ring out in this super-expressive, inviting Chardonnay from Ridge. The 2016 was fermented in barrel and spent 16 months in oak. All of the lots are from Monte Bello, but that are fruitier and therefore considered better suited for this wine than the flagship Chardonnay.

On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, pure and racy, with a satiny attack, deep core and bright acids. The finish is long and mouthwateringly chalky.

There's an intriguing touch of sweet onion to the sip. The laser-sharp precision would pair well with shellfish, but a slightly buttered warmth makes the bottling quite versatile. (MK)" (03/2017)

98 points Vinous: "The 2015 Monte Bello is just as phenomenal in this tasting as it has always been. Explosive and powerful in the glass, with fabulous textural richness, the 2015 has a lot to say. Super-ripe red and purplish berry fruit, rose petal and spice add myriad shades of complexity as this towering Monte Bello shows off its personality and pedigree. Rain during bloom reduced the crop significantly. Moderate temperatures with no heat spikes led to a long, relatively cool growing season. (AG)" (08/2018)

Dramatic in both its flavors and phenolic intensity, the 2014 is absolutely gorgeous. The aromatics are slightly reductive, so I would give the 2014 a good bit of air.

2016 STiRM Wine Co. Santa Cruz Mountain Pinot Noir

About the producer: "The path to become a winemaker started at a young age for Ryan Stirm. His education was based on the outdoors; composting with his grandma in her garden, exploring the local hills to forage edible plants, fishing and camping with his dad. This tangible education he had as a youngster developed into a lifelong pursuit to study and stay immersed in the natural world. Ryan's shift to focus on viticulture came later on, with the realization that authentic wine is a piece of living history; a signature of a specific time and place in a bo ...Read More »

2016 Sante Arcangeli "Split Rail Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tightly wound aromas of lemon pith, buttered toast and honeysuckle make for a familiar and pristine entry to this bottling from a single vineyard that sits at 1,700 feet. There's a strong Chablis-like grip to the tip of the sip, leading into crisp Pink Lady apple, Asian pear and, toward the finish, flashes of pineapple and more opulent fruit. (MK)" (06/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(91+) The 2016 Chardonnay Split Rail Vineyard offers up a bright bouquet of green apple, pear, Meyer lemon and pastry cream, fr ...Read More »

2014 Vöcal "Lilo Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

Winemaker's Notes: "The Lilo Vineyard perches 800 ft over the Monterey bay. Ringed by redwoods that act as a wind break and influence the vineyard. The vineyard is a south facing half bowl with a top soil of loose poor sandy loam. Vines are in two parcels, one 20 year old and one 12 year old. The 2014 vintage was very difficult, it was the third year of an extreme drought. We saw an early bud break followed by an early set, we followed that trajectory to it’s natural finish and had an early harvest of excellent fruit. Picked 8/28/14. 25% whole cluster. 1 ...Read More »

2014 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

2016 Arnot-Roberts "Trout Gulch" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

96 points Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Trout Gulch is wonderfully polished, nuanced and transparent. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chalk notes give the Trout Gulch its distinctive, bright flavor profile. In some years, the Trout Gulch has leaned towards the more austere of the Chardonnay spectrum. The 2016 has all the energy of the more tightly wound vintages, but with a bit more textural resonance that is the result of the wine having spent more time on its lees during aging. (AG)" (04/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering up ...Read More »
