2018 Bonny Doon "Vin Gris de Cigare" Central Coast Rosé

91 points Vinous: "Extremely pale pink. Incisive red berry and citrus pith qualities on the nose, along with suave floral, spice and mineral flourishes. Lithe and sharply focused on the palate, offering tangy strawberry, red currant and orange zest flavors and a touch of honeysuckle. Finishes dry and taut, with resonating florality and persistent red berry and mineral notes. This wine's blend of depth and finesse is pretty impressive, especially in light of its price.

2016 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes from the Santa Cruz Mountain estate, and it follows its big brother Monte Bello's style with a terrific sense of elegance paired with richness. Lots of crème de cassis, crushed violets, vanilla, tobacco leaf, and cedar notes flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, layered Cabernet Sauvignon that has terrific purity, building tannins, and a great finish. It offers pleasure today yet won't hit prime time for another 5-7 years, and it's going to evolve for 15-20 years (proba ...

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 whose 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 Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

92 points Wine & Spirits: "The delicacy of this Pinot Noir keeps it airy even as its red fruit saturates the texture and some youthful reductive notes close it off. That green-onion tension gives way to briny notes of seaweed and beach grass, the oak adding a smoky undertone. In 2007, Mount Eden purchased this Saratoga property, formerly known as Cinnabar, and renamed it Domaine Eden. One ridge to the north of Mount Eden, it’s where Jeffrey Patterson now grows this Pinot Noir on a north-facing slope." (04/2019)

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

Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chalk are all beautifully delineated in this saline, finely-sculpted Chardonnay.

2018 Assiduous "Regan Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountain Pinot Gris

Winemaker's notes: "The grapes were hand harvested at 21.5° Brix. The fermentations of this wine were carried out by indigenous yeast and bacteria. It was quite tricky this time around though, it took over two weeks for the juice to start kicking off. One barrel finally started fermenting then some of juice from that barrel was used to inoculate the rest of the barrels. The fermentation of these barrels was not climate controlled in order to blow off fruity esters and lend to a more esoteric white wine. This wine only went through partial malolactic ferm ...

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.

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.

2010 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This alternate selection from Ridge’s famed Monte Bello Vineyard proved controversial on our panel.

2004 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (94W&S, 93ST, 93VN, 92RP). 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)
