Recent vintages from winemaker Nathan Kandler emphasise nuances of geology and climate: it’s the more restrained ripeness and more moderate oak influence that set these bottlings apart from the wines of yesteryear.
One of the rising stars of the Santa Cruz Mountains is Thomas Fogarty Winery, which is owned and run by the Fogarty Family, with the wines made by the young, talented Nathan Kandler. The estate consists of numerous, tiny vineyards spread mostly around the estate, and they normally release numerous single vineyard Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.
There is no doubt in my mind the Santa Cruz Mountains is the greatest and most overlooked terrior in the United States. Period. The Santa Cruz Mountains is the single most exciting place to visit in California. No other region offers the same mix of history, innovation and what appears to be virtually unlimited potential.
