Traditional, elegant Pinot Noir from vineyards high in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Delicate red pinot fruit gives way to complexity and building tannins that soften with air. Wonderful balance and structure here that are hallmarks of the Mount Eden wines.
This Pinot Noir is a mosaic of different selections and clones grown at Domaine Eden: Dijon clones 777, 667 and 828 reside alongside the historic California selections Mount Eden, Calera and Swan. Each parcel is farmed to Mount Eden’s strict standards of sustainability, dry farming and low yields. -- winemaker notes.
