Happy New Year! Here’s to a good 2012—complete with an abundance of fine wines from the Santa Cruz Mountains.
You might want to start with a bold and luscious Zinfandel made by Mica Raas of Mica Cellars.
Born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Raas has an intimate knowledge of the micro terroir, soil and climate that the area has to offer. “Winemaking is an art and not a science, and true perfection in winemaking is only obtained by careful management of microbial chaos,” he says.
