Arnot-Roberts Cabernet Sauvignon Fellom Ranch 2019, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Santa Cruz Mountains, California

"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Fellom Ranch is the most broodingly tannic wine in this range. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2019 is incredibly tightly wound today. Time in the glass brings out all of that Santa Cruz Mountains savoriness and intensity. Leather, iron, scorched earth and tobacco fill out the layers over time. Fellom Ranch typically produces small berries and small juice yields. That natural intensity is especially evident in the 2019. (Drink between 2027-2044)" 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

Big Basin Vineyards Syrah Rattlesnake Rock 2016, 0.75L
Syrah from Santa Cruz Mountains, California

"The 2016 Syrah Rattlesnake Rock is a powerful wine. Red fruit, iron, chalk, white pepper, game and incisive tannins give the 2016 a real feeling of drive that distinguishes it in the range. This is an especially mineral-driven, savory, taut Syrah, with all the elements in the right place. Dried herbs, licorice and crushed flowers add aromatic intrigue. It will be interesting to see if the 2016 gains a bit more volume in bottle. It is such a promising wine. The Côte-Rôtie selection Syrah from John Alban works so well here." ‚Äč94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"From the home estate in the Santa Cruz Moutains, the 2016 Syrah Rattlesnake Rock is a firm, mineral-laced, yet concentrated and textured Syrah that's going to benefit from bottle age. Red and black fruits, spiced meat, bacon fat, and dried flower notes are just some of its nuances. A concentrated, classic mountain Syrah, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will cruise . . ." 94+ Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2016 Rattlesnake Rock bottling of syrah from Big Basin is one of their estate vineyard bottlings, as these vines were planted in 2000 in this windy parcel that sits between thirteen hundred and fourteen hundred feet above sea level. The 2016 version includes one-third whole clusters, was fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for twenty-one months in used, three hundred liter barrels. The cépages here includes two percent of viognier that was co-fermented with the syrah. The wine comes in at 13.9 percent octane and offers up a deep and properly reserved bouquet of cassis, black raspberry, grilled meats, pepper, a touch of black olive, fine stony soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and rock solid at the core, with a superb core of fruit, firm, ripe tannins and outstanding balance and grip on the long, nascently complex and very, very promising finish. There is a strong vein of iron in the soils here and this really comes across on the backend here. This is outstanding syrah in the making, with plenty of structure and outstanding depth of fruit. Think of old school Hermitage with a different, stony soil signature." 93 John Gilman, View From The Cellar

Jaimee Motley Wines Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Cruz Mountains 2018, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Santa Cruz Mountains, California

"Jaimee Motley's 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Peter Martin Ray is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Rich and layered in the glass, the 2018 has that extra kick of mid-palate density and volume that the 2017 doesn't, the result of a far more even and favorable growing season. Dark plum, mint, lavender, spice and dried herbs all develop with a bit of air, but it is the wine's balance that is most compelling. The 50% whole clusters are barely perceptible. What a wine..." 91-94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Jan 2021

Mindego Ridge Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains 2017, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Santa Cruz Mountains, California

"The 2017 Pinot Noir is striking. Succulent dark cherry, plum, sage, menthol and rose petal are some of the many notes that open up in the glass. The 2017 is beautifully lifted, yet deep, with veins of supporting acidity and structure that carry through to the finish, where chalk, white pepper, and blood orange top notes add brightness. A good bit of stems (40%) add aromatic breadth and complexity without overpowering the wine." 93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Mindego Ridge Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains 2018, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Santa Cruz Mountains, California

"The 2018 Pinot Noir is magnificent. Rich, deep and powerful, with tremendous resonance, the 2018 is positively stellar. A range of floral and savory notes develop in the glass, adding myriad layers of nuance in a Pinot that marries intensity with translucence. Sweet dark cherry, mint, sage, rose petal and blood orange build into the stunning finish. The 2018 is one of the very finest wines I have tasted from Mindego Ridge. I was simply blown away by these wines from Mindego Ridge and proprietors David and Stacey Gollnick. But I was not entirely surprised, given the stratospheric level winemaker Ehren Jordan achieved at his own Failla label and the strength of the vintage in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The 2018s are truly magical wines that speak with such eloquence as to the potential, character and world-class pedigree of this site." 96 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2017, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Santa Cruz Mountains, California

"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is going to need a number of years to come around. The only question is how many. In 2017, the Mount Eden Cabernet is shockingly opulent. Inky black fruit, bittersweet chocolate, spice, leather and incense are all dialed up in this super-sized Cabernet. Even so, there is plenty of structure lurking beneath. I can't wait to see how this ages. (Drink between 2027-2042)" 97, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

Mount Eden Pinot Noir Estate 2019, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Santa Cruz Mountains, California

"This is more bone than flesh, with a wiry tannic structure around a core of savory, damson plum and blood orange flavors, all backed by a tangy sanguine note. The taut, piercing finish is very persistent. Should be interesting to cellar; only for fans of the style, though. Drink now through 2029. 753 cases made." 91, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
