Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountain Pinot Noir 2014

  • 3299


Domaine Eden is a nearby mountaintop wine estate purchased by Mount Eden Vineyards in 2007. It was founded and built by the late Tom Mudd in 1983, and was initially planted with the Mount Eden clonal selections of Chardonnay and
Cabernet Sauvignon, which evolved to include Pinot Noir from various Dijon and California selections. The viticulture at Domaine Eden is approached with the same level of naturalness and sustainability as Mount Eden’s estate vineyards. The soils here, however, are different from the estate’s Franciscan shale so even though Domaine Eden is a mere mile away “as the crow flies”, the wines express more varietal fruit with expansive mid-palate flavors than the soil-driven minerality of Mount Eden estate wines.

With the differences in vineyard character, the property inspired a new wine brand, Domaine Eden, which focuses on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from this special site and Bordeaux varieties from Mount Eden’s larger home, the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Aged in 10% new French Burgundy Barrels for 13 months.

Wine Notes

Drought year has brought only 14 inches of rain. However the limited yields result to a much more concentrated and higher level of density. A bigger wine than most vintages, the 2014 bottling has intense cranberry, raspberry, pomegranate flavors with a touch of bergamont, bay leaf and milk oak tannins. 14% Alc. Content. Great on it's own or with mushroom risotto, mild cheese, pigeon, roast pork and turkey.
