Mount Eden Vineyards Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2015

$34.99

95 Points - limited                     New release of the Domaine Eden Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains from Mount Eden winery - one of the best buys in Pinot Noir this year. 95 Points Wine Enthusiast **#9 in the Enthusiast 100 of 2016** and an *Editors' Choice*: " While this wine’s Mount Eden sister bottling may better stand the test of time, the Domaine Eden is what most people will most like to drink right now, and it’s cheaper too. Aromas of dried violets, uncrushed boysenberries and pencil lead make for an ethereal nose that seems to hold secrets one must uncover. Precise tannins on the palate offer floral yet savory flavors of black sesame, nori, violet and mulberry. It’s mellow yet mysterious." 93 Points Robert Parker: "A fabulous introduction to the Domaine/Mount Eden Pinots, the Pinot Noir is flat-out beautiful in the way it captures the essence of the Santa Cruz Mountains and the house style. Sweet dark cherries, flowers, mint and herbs caress the palate. There is a purity of fruit that is stunning in its beauty. Partial use of whole clusters (20%) gives the wine much of its fragrance, but ultimately the Domaine Eden bottling is all about class. At $35 it represents one of the very finest buys in Pinot Noir from anywhere, including the hallowed vineyards of Burgundy. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."

This wine enlightened me on why fine Pinot Noir is precious :) I mainly tasted Cabernets up till now, and Pinot Noir was always just like a lighter-bodied cabernet before today. This wine is aromatic, light-bodied yet with some complexity, very amazed and finally understand the gist of good Pinot Noir (note: am a beginner with wine ;) ). Heard that the 2014 vintage was served in Prince Harry’s wedding — can’t wait to try!
