Mount Eden Vineyards Domaine Eden Pinot Noir 2014
Winemaker Notes :
Lovely spicy, intense aromas that are unmistakably Pinot Noir—deep complex, raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry—combine with oak and an earth-born nuance. Flavors are deep across on the palate, echoing the complexity of the aromas.
|Appellation||Santa Cruz Mountains|
|Brand||Mount Eden Vineyards|
Wine Enthusiast#9 in the Enthusiast 100 of 2016** and an *Editors' Choice*: While this wine’s Mount Eden sister bottling may better stand the test of time, the Domaine Eden is what most people will most like to drink right now, and it’s cheaper too. Aromas of dried violets, uncrushed boysenberries and pencil lead make for an ethereal nose that seems to hold secrets one must uncover. Precise tannins on the palate offer floral yet savory flavors of black sesame, nori, violet and mulberry. It’s mellow yet mysterious.
Wine Advocate"A fabulous introduction to the Domaine/Mount Eden Pinots, the Pinot Noir is flat-out beautiful in the way it captures the essence of the Santa Cruz Mountains and the house style. Sweet dark cherries, flowers, mint and herbs caress the palate. There is a purity of fruit that is stunning in its beauty. Partial use of whole clusters (20%) gives the wine much of its fragrance, but ultimately the Domaine Eden bottling is all about class.
