  1. Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains Estate 2016
    JD94+
    $58.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94+ Points! 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 (probably longer). - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  2. Bedrock Under The Mountain Heritage Wine Santa Clara County 2017
    $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    This amazing survivor vineyard is indeed “under the mountain,” or more accurately right under the Santa Cruz Mountains. Located in the hills west of Morgan Hill and just north of Hecker Pass, the vineyard lies in a region once heavily planted to vines. Most of the original plantings in the area have given way to housing, shopping malls and the other needs of the sprawling south Bay Area, which makes this vineyard, nestled in the hills, so unique. Farmed by the Gregory family, the vineyard is planted predominately to Zinfandel and Carignan, though some Petite Sirah, Muscat and others exist on the site as well. The small amount of wine we are able to make off the site is defined by beautiful mountain acidity, fresh fruit and aromatics that pop out of the glass. - Morgan Twain-Peterson Learn More
  3. Rhys Vineyards Alesia Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 2016
    WA92
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  The 2016 Alesia Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains is superb, unfurling in the glass with notes of fresh pear, preserved citrus, lemon oil and a light framing of smoky reduction. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, concentrated and tensile, built around a racy line of acidity and concluding with a saline finish that's almost searingly stony. This represents a notable change of pace after the more rounded, giving Anderson Valley Alesia bottling and marks this out as one of the keenest values in the Rhys portfolio. Follow it for a decade, perhaps more. - William Kelley, robertparker.com

  5. Calera Chardonnay Mount Harlan 2016
    WA93
    VM93
    $41.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93+ Points! The 2016 Chardonnay Mt Harlan from Calera is excellent, wafting from the glass with notes of yellow orchard fruit, citrus blossom and blanched almonds. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, ample and elegantly textural, with lovely tension, chalky grip and a pure, stony finish. This is a beautifully balanced offering from Calera that still feels tightly coiled, and I wouldn't be surprised if my score comes to look conservative. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

  6. Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains 2015
    VM91
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91+ Points!  The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is bold and pungent in the glass. An explosion of aromatics and fruit that makes a strong opening statement. Savory herb, leather, smoke, tobacco and licorice add shades of nuance to the dark fleshed fruit. The firm tannins need time to soften, but the 2015 is unquestionably a winner. Moreover, from a value perspective, the 2015 is impossible to beat within the context of CA Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields are down a whopping 50%.

  7. Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Santa Cruz Mountains 2014
    VM94
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94+ Points!  The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is fabulous. Racy and linear in the glass, the 2014 is superb from start to finish. The 2014 is remarkably fresh considering the brutal drought conditions of the year. Bright floral notes, red-toned fruit and fine yet insistent tannins are some of the signatures in this super-expressive Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet. Vivid and chiseled in style, the 2014 will drink well for several decades. I loved it. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

    VM93
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  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.

  9. Varner Pinot Noir Spring Ridge Vineyard Hidden Block 2014
    VM93
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  The 2014 Pinot Noir Hidden Block is the most immediate and dense of the four Pinots in the Varner range. 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.

  10. Varner Pinot Noir Three Blocks Spring Ridge Vineyard 2014
    JD93
    WA93
    VM94
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  Gracious, elegant and absolutely impeccable in its balance, the 2014 Pinot Noir Three Blocks is terrific. 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.
