About Mount Eden Vineyards
Mount Eden Vineyards has been bottling Chardonnay and Pinot Noir about as long as anyone in California. Today, of course, Mount Eden’s Chardonnay is one of California’s finest. The wine is tightly wound, minerally and emphatically Old World in style.
93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
($40; 75% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot and 3% cabernet franc) Ruby-red color. Cherry preserves, cassis, pipe tobacco and dried flowers on the nose, with a sexy note of oak spice emerging with air. Juicy and gently sweet red and dark berry flavors are complemented by notes of bitter chocolate and cherry pit, with a hint of spicy tobacco on the back end. At once deep and graceful, with strong finishing cut and a lingering note of bitter cherry. I prefer this bottling to the excellent 2005 and find it more accessible as well.
