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.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013
Bright yellow. Lively citrus and orchard fruit scents are complicated by notes of sweet butter and honey. Fleshy and smooth in texture, offering spicy pear, orange and fig flavors and a touch of bitter quinine. Nicely concentrated but lively and dry as well, finishing long and tangy, with nervy cut and a hint of anise. As usual, this is a great introduction to Mount Eden's powerful but energetic style of chardonnay at a price almost any wine lover can justify. I'd like to see this wine offered by the glass at a restaurant.
