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 | International Wine Cellar , July/August 1998
Pale gold color. Extravagant, leesy aromas of smoked nuts, fresh herbs and complex, ripe citric tones. Big, dense and rather muscular on the palate, with somewhat elevated alcohol that carries through to a slightly harsh aftertaste. Not quite as expressive in the mouth as on the nose, but very concentrated. Still developing. This was a cool year with a blast of hot weather at the end, says Patterson.
