Mount Eden Vineyards Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyards
The whole Mount Eden range is characteristic of the best of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The wines are deep, powerful and reserved. All will benefit from cellaring. The Pinot is a big, rich style, whereas the Cabernet Sauvignons are tight and backward in their youth with considerable structure and grip. An Old Vine Reserve Cabernet is also released. They need time to soften the initially austere mountain tannins. Chardonnay is particularly good: restrained in style with subtle citrus fruit and fine-grained nutty, spicy oak held in the background. A Reserve is also made. The wines have real depth and complexity. More approachable wines are released under the Domaine Eden umbrella and there is also now a Chardonnay Edna Valley Wolff bottling. (DM)
