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.

(88% cabernet sauvignon, 6% merlot, 4% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot): Deep ruby. Powerful, smoke-accented cherry and blackcurrant aromas are energized by zesty minerals, picking up pipe tobacco, cedar and dried rose nuances with air. Fleshy and broad but focused too, offering intense dark berry flavors and a suggestion of bitter chocolate. A sweet vanilla quality rounds out the impressively persistent finish, which shows superb clarity and solid but well-knit tannins.
