Winemaker Notes

The color is bright, crystalline straw yellow. The aroma is very expressive and exuberant, with tremendous personality. Notes of herbes fines framed by aromas of lime and mineral notes that lend complexity and elegance. On the palate it's voluminous, well-balanced, and fresh, with the clear notes of green chilies that are so typical in this valley and a harmoniously crisp finish. with oysters and ceviches. Also good with baked or grilled fish and goat cheese.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

Grapefruit aromas and flavors shoot through this sauvignon with pleasing, juicy bitterness. That grapefruit character is surrounded by other citrus notes, building on the volume of the wine with intense freshness.

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.
