NEW Estate Releases
Santa Cruz Montains, California
NEW Releases from Mount Eden Vineyards
Santa Cruz Mountains
This past May we had the extreme privilege to host Jeffrey and Ellie Patterson, owners of Mount Eden, for our first ever, sit-down seminar tasting. Those in attendance bore witness to why we feel so devoted and dedicated to this historic winery. It is an amazing property and the wines top our All-Time Favorites list.
We just received the latest vintage releases and they are stunning.
Antonio Galloni "Mount Eden is one of the truly elite wineries in the United States."
James Laube from The Wine Spectator considers Mount Eden-
"California's greatest Vineyard."
Robert Parker says "This iconic winery continues to offer wines with personalities and styles that set them apart from just about anything else readers will taste from California."
2016 Mount Eden Chardonnay Estate
$62.99, $56.69 for Wine Club Members
"The 2016 Chardonnay is a very pretty wine. Tangerine peel, tropical overtones, mint and butter notes give the 2016 a decidedly extroverted feel in terms of its flavor profile, and yet the wine remains a bit compact in its overall feel. In 2016, the fruit was brought in entirely in August, which is historically on the early side. The 2016 will drink nicely with minimal cellaring, although time in bottle should help the mid-palate flesh out a bit more." "93" Antonio Galloni Vinous Oct 2019.
2015 Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
$92.99, 83.69 for Wine Club Members
"Mount Eden's Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the hidden gems, not just in the Santa Cruz Mountains, but in wine more broadly. The 2015 is bold, deep and pungent, with striking fruit density and tons of aromatic nuance. Jeffrey Patterson told me he had never seen such a tiny crop. Some vines produced no fruit at all. As a result, the 2015 was aged entirely in new oak, all of which it handles very well. The balance of savory Cabernet aromatics, fruit and structure is already terrific, and will only improve with more time in bottle." "94" Antonio Galloni Vinous Oct 2019.
2016 Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon
$47.99.99, $43.19 for Wine Club Members
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, pliant and fruity, with lovely aromatic nuances that add an attractive upper register to the red cherry and plum fruit. Sweet floral overtones develop with a bit of time in the glass. The 2016 offers tons of fleshiness in the understated, gracious style of the year here. Best of all, it will drink well upon release." "91" Antonio Galloni Vinous Oct 2019
