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.'"

2016 Thomas Fogarty "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains Estate is a great introduction to the quality of this up and coming estate. It has a classic yet approachable style in its orchard fruits, white flowers, and subtle toasty, brioche-scented aromas and flavors. It’s rounded, nicely textured, balanced, and loaded with character."

2015 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Chardonnay Estate comes all from the estate vineyard and mostly from a block of vines planted in 1990. Aged in 50% new oak, it’s another brilliant Chardonnay from Jeffrey Patterson that has a rich, concentrated, classic style as well as ample honeyed minerality, orchard fruits, and hints of brioche and toasted spice. Pure, medium to full-bodied and impeccably balanced, you can enjoy bottles today or cellar for 10-15 years, if you’re so inclined."

2014 Varner "Hidden Block - Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (Previously $45)

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.

2014 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the finest vintages of this cuvée I’ve tasted, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a thrill a minute with its fabulous bouquet of crème de cassis, charcoal embers, spice, and subtle vanilla oak aromas and flavors. Possessing medium to full body, an incredibly layered, seamless texture, moderate acidity, and present, ripe tannins, it has some upfront charm given its purity of fruit and texture, but deserves 3-4 years of bottle age and is going to keep for two decades. This beauty rivals Ridge’s Monte Bello and is an incred ...Read More »

2014 Mindego Ridge "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay (Previously $45)

94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay is one of the most distinctive wines being made in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Graphite, smoke, peach, mint and honey give the 2014 much of its exotic flair. 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. There is no question the 2014 is a stunning wine, although it shows the most extroverted, flamboyant side of what is possible in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

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.

2017 Arnot-Roberts "Trout Gulch" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Vinous: "Another highlight in this range, the 2017 Chardonnay Trout Gulch is stellar. Bright and focused, as it always is, the 2017 offers a striking interplay of tension and fruit density. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chalk are all beautifully delineated in this saline, finely-sculpted Chardonnay. The 2017 is going to need a few years to come into its own, but it is positively striking, even in the early going. (AG)" (01/2019)

On the palate, it's medium-bodied, textural and velvety, with a generous, gourmand personality but plenty of acidity and sapid complexity, concluding with a beautifully delineated, mouthwatering finish.

2015 Trail Marker Wine Co. "Chapel Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay (Previously $30)

90 points Vinous: "The 2015 Chardonnay Chapel Vineyard is a rich, powerful wine, especially for the Santa Cruz Mountains, but then again, that is the style of this vintage in which Chapel, like many other sites, produced tiny berries and concentrated fruit. 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 »

2017 Alfaro "A" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

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.

Ample, rich and also structured, the Jensen is another wine that needs at least a few more years in bottle.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A resoundingly great effort from this iconic producer, Ridge's 2001 is a spectacular, still young but promising wine...A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by extravagant, generous aromas of pen ink, lead pencil shavings, spice box and black fruits. The wine is full-bodied and silky textured, but secondary nuances have not yet begun to develop as it is still very primary, tasting more like a 3-4 year old Monte Bello than one that is ten years of age. Nevertheless, it reveals spectacular concentration, a voluptuous texture, a rare opulence for a Ridge Monte Bello, and an incredible finish. The upside is enormous and this cuvee may prove somewhat atypical due to the huge percentage of Merlot in the final blend and the higher than normal alcohol. (RP)" (06/2011)

93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Hidden Block is a very pretty, lifted wine. Sweet red cherry, mint and floral notes grace the palate in an understated, surprisingly gracious Pinot from the Varner brothers. The Hidden Block is one of the more delicate, acid-driven Pinots I have tasted from Varner. This is the first block that is picked, which likely contributes to the wine's laid-back personality and expressive aromatics.

2013 Varner "Picnic Block Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

92 points Vinous: "Sweet dark cherry, menthol, pine, licorice and dark spices are all infused in the 2013 Pinot Noir Picnic Block. 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.

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

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Picnic Block is bold, powerful and beautifully resonant on the palate. Succulent red cherry and plum fruit is nicely pushed forward, with pretty floral and savory notes that add striking aromatic complexity. There is lovely depth and texture to this pungent, racy Pinot Noir from Bob and Jim Varner. Beams of tannin underpin the subtle yet persistent, structured finish. (AG)" (08/2018) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More herbal, with plenty of tobacco, smoked dark fruits, sour cherry, and underbrush notes, the medium-bodie ...Read More »
