The Estate Pinot from Mount Eden is the essence of mountain fruit. Dry-farmed and at over 2,000 feet, this pinot dazzles with elegance and purity of fruit.
"Pinot Noir is such an intriguing wine, often changing "styles" from vintage to vintage. Usually our Estate Pinot is broad and somewhat muscular; this vintage is ethereal and musical with delicate, nuanced, soft red fruit aromas. The weight on the palate is building with enticing flavors of wintergreen, mint, and boysenberry. Years like 2016 reward patient cellaring. Prime examples such as 1996, 2000 and 2006 have all started their life focused on complexity rather than power. With time, the mid-palate grows and the magical savoriness of Pinot Noir shines." -- winery notes.
