    Winemaker Notes

    Bright crimson with some purple tints indicative of oak maturation, bottle age and vintage character. Distinctive and commanding nose with a strong berry-like aroma. An abundance of ripe fruit. The principal flavor is of berrylike Shiraz but hints of black pepper, with rich distinct oak. The length of palate shows strong, rich berry and cassis Cabernet Sauvignon character.

    A rugged and topographically diverse cool-climate appellation with a rich history, the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA stretches from Half Moon Bay to just above Monterey county. Elevation ranges from just 800 feet to upwards of 3000, and microclimates vary substantially depending on which side of the mountains the vineyards lay. Cool ocean winds and fog play an important role as well. This can be a challenging region in which to grow grapes, but it is well worth the effort. Wine has been made here since the 1800s, most notably from the legendary Ridge Vineyards, whose Monte Bello vineyard garners international admiration.

    [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon are the stars of this region, and Merlot and Zinfandel also perform quite well. Santa Cruz Mountains wines are noted for their distinct minerality and balanced acidity. Often these wines can be aged for many years. Organic and sustainable vineyard practices are becoming increasingly common.
