96The Wine Advocate

...fabulous notes of black cherries, currants, crushed rocks and sous bois, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, building tannin and a killer finish.

95+ Vinous / IWC

...endowed with real tannic heft and power... Graphite, black cherry, cloves, leather and licorice add to an impression of gravitas... "A lot of everything."

95Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of rose buds, black-raspberry extract, wet clay and dried purple flowers show on the nose... Savory flavors of roasted black-plum skins and elderberry meet with soy, graphite and loam on the palate...

91Wine Spectator

Offering different shades of plum and cherry flavors...floral and spicy, picking up a smoky, toasty nuance on the aftertaste that puts the inherent elegance here on full display.

17Jancis Robinson

Smoked meat, spice, sausage, dark cherry fruit. Big, bold style that has great purity and density.


United States, California, Santa Cruz Mountains

Santa Cruz Mountains AVA includes high elevation territory in the counties of Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Mateo. The AVA follows the coast line from San Francisco to Monterey with elevations from 400 feet to 3,000 feet above sea level. There are 1,500 vineyard acres and the AVA was established in 1981. Despite the challenging terrain in these rugged mountains and hills, highly esteemed wineries have been located here since the early 20th century, when Paul Masson, a Frenchman by birth, started making sparkling wine in the area. By the 1970s vineyards were growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Numerous microclimates within the AVA offer viticulturists diverse growing conditions, and many varietals are grown successfully.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
