Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2014

$55

96 Points - limited                             Limited new Pinot release from Mount Eden. previous vintage 96 Points Robert Parker:  "The Mount Eden Pinot Noir Estate is one of the stars from the appellation, and the vintage. Offering fabulous notes of black cherries, currants, crushed rocks and sous bois, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, building tannin and a killer finish. This is a sensational Pinot Noir that can be enjoyed today, or cellared for a decade or more...The Pinots are made with anywhere from 20-50% stem inclusion, which can make the wines hard to understand when young. If I am looking for an aged bottle of California Chardonnay or Pinot, Mount Eden is always at or near the top of my list."

Raspberry with hints of eucalyptus and stones on nose. Red fruits, plums. Elegant. Best bottle I’ve had in a while. Had with Vicia’s Farmers Feast.

Excuse me for rating this again but it has improved since my last rating. Cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, and now I'm detecting a bit of hazelnut.

Year in and out, one of my favorite California Pinots. 2014 vintage is very approachable in it's youth.
