Winemaker Notes

Forward, rich aromas of yellow squash, melon, lemon curd, pineapple, lily and roasted nuts with balanced alcohol and subtle oak. Medium plus body with concentrated flavors of ripe pear, fuji apple, tangerine and honeydew melon along with underlying minerality with juicy acidity and a long finish. Drinks beautifully now but will continue to develop over the next 2-3 years.

Vinous
The 2014 Chardonnay is one of the most distinctive wines being made in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Graphite, smoke, peach, mint and honey give the 2014 much of its exotic flair. Dramatic in both its flavors and phenolic intensity, the 2014 is absolutely gorgeous. The aromatics are slightly reductive, so I would give the 2014 a good bit of air. There is no question the 2014, is a stunning wine, although it shows the more extroverted, flamboyant side of what is possible in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chardonnay from Mindego Ridge comes from a tiny 1.5-acre parcel and spent 11 months in mostly neutral French oak. Beautiful notes of white peach, pineapple, exotic flowers and hints of mint all flow from this medium to full-bodied, rich, layered, gorgeous Chardonnay that has excellent freshness and vibrancy. Like all 2014s, its upfront and ready to go, with tons of fruit. Drink it over the coming couple of years.

Pinot Noir—one of the wine world's most difficult grapes to wrap one's brain around—always presents a challenge to a wine taster. The 2014 Mindego Ridge is no exception. Fresh and enticing this wine exhibits a wealth of wonderful aromas and flavors—sour cherries, tart strawberries, intense minerality, and black licorice. The satisfying and well-balanced palate makes it a beautiful pairing choice with braised meats. (Tasted: January 18, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
