Mount Eden Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate 750ml

Mount Eden Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate 750ml 29920

$105.99 price per bottle

Martin Ray planted pinot noir at Mount Eden in 1942. The budwood came from Paul Masson's original vineyard near Mount Eden. Because Masson was a good friend of the Louis Latour family of Burgundy, it’s likely the selection came from one of Latour’s best vineyards and was brought by Masson to California during the 1880’s. The faith Ray demonstrated in this most difficult of red varieties, at a time when America had little appreciation of fine wine, was remarkable. Today, our pinot noir vines occupy seven acres of our estate vineyard and typically yield a meager 1 to 1. 5 tons per acre. The varietal character emphasizes wild strawberry, earth, blueberry and dill. Elegance and transparency is the key to our style. Cellaring from five to twelve years will pay handsome rewards. The soil in our estate vineyards and our cellar practice give a more Burgundian style rather than a Californian one.

Other text
Mount Eden remains one of the most iconic estates in the world, with wines that have proven over time to age exquisitely. The Domaine Eden range is composed of three entry-level bottlings that are made from what was formerly the Cinnabar property and deselected barrels from Mount Eden. All of the wines bear the indelible signatures that have defined proprietor Jeffrey Patterson’s Chardonnays, Pinots and Cabernets for the last four decades. Chardonnay and Pinot get most of the attention, but it would be a mistake to overlook the Cabernets from both Mount Eden and Domaine Eden, as they are fabulous. -Antonio Galloni (8/17)
