“This crazy-good Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot ($50) has everything going for it. A blend of 14 clones from three Santa Cruz Mountains vineyards—estate, Lester Family Vineyards in Aptos and Coast Grade Vineyard in Bonny Doon—the end result is complex aromas of dark fruit, and big bold flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry, with some earthy mushroom and clove. Only the finest grapes are selected for this prize wine, and only handmade French oak barrels are chosen for aging.” ~ Josie Cowden, Good Times
