The Central Coast of California includes all the vineyard land between San Francisco and Los Angeles. That means a huge array of different growing conditions, from the forested peaks of the Santa Cruz Mountains in the north to the rolling coastal hills of Santa Barbara in the South. Marquis is proud to offer you exclusive access to a number of leading wineries from the Central Coast, such as Mount Eden and Ojai.

J.Lohr 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

$24.99

This delicious bottle starts off with robust aromas of cherry, sweet oak and mint. Polished but firm tannins uphold dark fruit, baking spice and a pinch of peppery herbs on the well-rounded, satisfying palate. Score: 90 points -- Matt Kettman, Wine...

Mount Eden 2015 Estate Pinot Noir 750ml

$108.61

The 2015 Pinot Noir has softened nicely since I last tasted it, although the aromatics remain a bit reticent, most likely because of the 35% whole clusters used that year. There is lovely richness and depth underneath, but readers will have to cellar the...

Ojai 2016 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills 750ml

$74.69

The 2016 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills offers terrific depth and intensity, but it is also a bit reduced, something I am not used to seeing in Ojai Pinots. Even so, the purity of the dark red cherry and plum fruit is striking. The 2016 is a wine of deep...

Mount Eden 2013 Library Estate Pinot Noir 750ml

$126.00

Mount Eden's 2013 Pinot Noir is going to need at least a few years to come into its own. Dense and powerful, yet also very tightly wound, the 2013 is in no mood to show all of its cards. Still, the intensity of the vintage is impossible to miss. The 35%...
