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.'"

2013 Thomas Fogarty "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "From one of the preeminent Chardonnay producers in the country comes their least expensive yet perhaps most stunning bottling, showing strong lemon rind, sea salt, Gravenstein apple and a floral touch of honeysuckle on the nose. The wondrously zippy and saline palate is framed by a grippy, grapefruit-rind-led tension, but opens just enough to allow the slightest hints of lemon curd and delicate marzipan warmth. *Editors' Choice, #14 in Best 100 of 2016* (MK)" (09/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Fogarty's 2013 Chardonnay Santa Cruz ...

Located at approximately 2,450’ above sea level and just 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the Monte Bello vines lie in one of the most unique winegrowing climates in all of California.

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.

2016 Madson Wines Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes: "This Santa Cruz Mountain Chardonnay is a blend of two, small vineyards in Los Altos Hills. Both vineyards were planted in the early 90’s on steep slopes with southern facing exposures. Cool NW winds and morning fog retains acidity in this Wente Clone Chardonnay. Franciscan Complex soils of basalt and schist create a dense middle palate. The grapes were picked to promote crispness and fresh acid balance. At the winery, the fruit was handled anaerobically and pressed as whole clusters. Fermentation occurs 100% in neutral french oak barr ...

2006 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (Bin Soiled Label)

95 points Vinous: "A dark, brooding beauty, the 2006 Monte Bello is still very, very young. The aromatics alone are enticing, but the tannins still need time to soften. The 2006 is a masculine, vertical Monte Bello that demands cellaring. Even so, it is pretty impressive today. Scents of lavender, sage, mint and savory herbs add closing flourishes. The perfumed sweetness of the fruit (one of the hallmarks of the very late harvest) remains one of the signatures of the 2006. The 2006 can be enjoyed today or cellared for another 25+ years.

2015 Mindego Ridge "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

The decision to use 50% whole clusters, almost by necessity in 2015, resulted in a Pinot that is both rich in fruit and also aromatically lifted, not to mention also quite a bit more expressive of this site and the Santa Cruz Mountains more broadly. 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. The saline-infused finish offers a compelling counter to the intense, pliant fruit. The whole clusters are very nicely integrated, ...

Redwoods, coastal shrub and pines fill out the borders. The 2016 vintage was the first year we had a healthy yield in the vineyard despite continuing drought.
