WineSmith Bates Ranch Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
On Sale

WINESMITH Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Cruz Mountains


  • 4 generations have farmed this rugged, famous, award winning vineyard - Bates Ranch
  • We’ve seen wine from this vineyard at $270 a bottle - this wine is a steal!
  • Enjoy now or cellar for 10+ years

WHAT WE TASTED: Deep garnet color, a lovely pastiche of blackberry, currant, black plum, violets, pepper, smokey goodness. Did we mention plum, fennel, apricot, and coriander? Fine tannins on a long finish, not hot and oh so balanced.   

WINEMAKER: Clark Smith - Author of ‘Postmodern Winemaking: Rethinking the Modern Science of an Ancient Craft’ and pioneer in micro-oxygenation.


It will knock your socks off. The true old vine Cabernet is grown on the mountain peak which gives it intensity and rich minerality. Fog and sunshine ripen those grapes to intense perfection  Sustainable farming practices, dry-farmed, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation and only 100 cases produced.
