2015 Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Pinot Noir from Domaine Eden is very pretty, offering up a youthfully expressive bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, currant leaf and candied peel. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and succulent, without quite the depth, dimension and textural finesse of the Mount Eden bottling but nevertheless a very compelling Pinot Noir in its own right. (WK)" (05/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Domaine Eden 2015 Pinot Noir is gorgeous. Bright, fresh and nuanced, with striking aromatic lift, the 2015 hits all th ...Read More »

2015 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This classic bottling is still a baby and needs plenty of time to open. When it does, aromas of toasted hazelnuts, light oak, lemon pith and exotic apples show on the nose. The palate combines oak smoke with savory sea salt and sumptuous golden apple fruits. Drink 2019–2030. *Cellar Selection* (MK)" (12/2018) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Deeply hued and very rich, with notes of beeswax and light smoke to the ripe pear, apple and Marcona almond flavors.

2013 Beauregard "Zayante Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Syrah (Previously $30)

Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2013 Syrah Zayante Vineyard is an interesting, black and blue scented effort that has lots of pepper, green herbs and spice aromas and flavors. It's ripe, mouthfilling and textured, with good acidity and a rustic, chewy style. It’s certainly an enjoyable, character filled red that will drink nicely for 4-6 years." (08/2017)

2016 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A total head turner is the 2016 Chardonnay Estate, which is reminiscent of a Grand Cru White Burgundy. Loaded with notions of ripe orchard fruits, toast, flinty minerality and white flowers, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a deep, vibrant, powerful texture and bracing acidity. This is a beautiful, backward beauty that needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years and enjoyed over the following 10-15 years." (06/2018) 93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Estate is gorgeous.

Tasting like a Grand Cru Chablis with its incredibly pure lemon curd, flinty minerality, brioche and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, laser focused, crisp and crystalline on the palate.

2017 Kathryn Kennedy "Small Lot" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

From the producer: "Our knowledge of the Santa Cruz Mountains allowed us to access grapes from superior small vineyards. These growers include residential homeowners who’s grapes arrive at the crush pad in very small lots. Warmer growing conditions on the inland side of the coast range have proven to yield superb Cabernet. The San Francisco Chronicle recognized Small Lot as being one of its 'Top 100 Wines.'"

2015 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Pinot Noir offers notable depth and textural richness, but it is also very closed in on itself. The aromatics and fruit density are both hugely promising, but readers should plan on being patient with the 2015, as it needs time. Whole cluster inflections from the 35% stems add savoriness throughout. The 2015 is a fabulous wine in the making. Harvest began between August 8 and 10, which is shockingly early. (AG)" (08/2018)

The blend of vineyard sites works especially well in yielding a wine that is wonderfully complete. Sweet red cherry, tobacco and rose petal notes give the 2014 its bright, energetic feel. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2014 also packs a serious punch. In other words, there is a lot of wine here.

Deep and ample on the palate, the Picnic shows the more virile, masculine side of Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir. This is an especially dense, meaty Pinot Noir. Graphite, black pepper, game, smoke and scorched earth add the closing shades of nuance. The chewy tannins will benefit from time in bottle to soften. This is an especially big, ample Pinot from the Varners. (AG)" (07/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ...Read More »

Winemaker Jeffrey Patterson has led this low-yielding estate since 1981, attributing its success to wine-growing, rather than winemaking. Surprisingly the heritage of the winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon vines can be traced back to the 1890s, when viticulturist Emmett Rixford obtained cuttings from Château Margaux in Bordeaux.

Apricot, chamomile, spice and lightly honeyed nuance all develop nicely in the glass. There is good phenolic intensity. Even so, I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather later, as the fruit profile is pretty ripe. Drink 2017-2020. (AG)" (03/2017) Wine Spectator: "This has concentrated green ap ...Read More »

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.

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.

2015 Lioco "La Marisma" Santa Cruz Mountain Chardonnay

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 ...Read More »

2007 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (97JS, 95JG, 95RP, 94VN, 94W&S, 92ST). 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)

2005 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 97W&S, 96VN, 94ST, 93CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While in a good year there's normally 4,000 cases of the Monte Bello, there was a scant 2,200 cases produced of the 2005 Monte Bello. Thick, massive, and concentrated with ample currants, lead pencil, licorice and chocolate aromas and flavors, this full-bodied beauty is just now at the early stages of adolescence, and has plenty of underlying tannic grip still present. It should hit full maturity in another 4-5 years and hold for 2-3 decades after that. (JD)" (10/2015)

2004 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (94W&S, 93ST, 93VN, 91RP). Wine & Spirits: "Ridge grows one of the most distinctive Cabernets in California at its Monte Bello estate. This vintage represents a selection of 38 percent of the crop, which itself had been naturally restricted by lower than average rainfall, particularly in winter. Ridge doesn't irrigate these vines-nor do they inoculate the juice to start fermentation, which yielded a modest 13.2 percent alcohol in 2004. The fractured limestone in the soil provided just enough moisture to grow this elegant cabernet, with flavors of wild black cherries and black currants. It feels balanced and firm, dense while weightless, a beauty that will mature for two decades from the vintage, perhaps longer." (12/2007)

2000 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2000 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (95VN, 93RP, 92ST). Vinous: "Do you want the good news or the bad news? Well, Ridge's 2000 Monte Bello is still not ready to drink. Huge, rich and voluptuous, but backed up be serious structure, the 2000 is still a very, very young wine. Readers who own the 2000 should be thrilled. With time in the glass, the 2000 starts to open up a little bit aromatically, but the tannins remain imposing. Hints of tobacco, iron, smoke, savory herbs, leather and licorice all add nuance on the close. This dramatic, brooding Monte Bello will likely drink well for another three decades. In 2000, Montebello is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. (AG)" (07/2013)
