2013 Thomas Fogarty "Mindego Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

SKU #1488347 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The first release from this lower elevation site, the 2013 Pinot Noir Mindego Ridge Vineyard is smoking good, with ample cassis, black cherry, peppery herbs and forest floor-like aromas and flavors. Supple, layered, and even sexy with gorgeous purity, it saw one-third whole cluster and 16 months in 25% new French oak. It’s a beautiful Pinot Noir from these magic hills in the Santa Cruz Mountains. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark An addition to the range, the 2013 Pinot Noir Mindego Ridge Vineyard hits the palate with explosive dark fruit, spices, new leather, menthol and licorice. This is one of the more virile, imposing wines in the Fogarty range. The 30% whole clusters are completely buried by the imposing intensity of the fruit. Needless to say, it is going to be interesting to see what develops here. For now, two things are obvious; 1) the Mindego Bay stands out quite a bit from the rest of the single-vineyard Pinots in the range because of its overall power and darkness and 2) Fogarty's Pinot from this site is markedly different in style from the wine made by the vineyard's owner and their winemaker, Ehren Jordan. The 2013 was aged in French oak, 25% new. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2015)
