This wine is from United States, California region, Santa Cruz County sub-region and Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. 95 PTS - Vi...nous / Antonio GalloniHoneysuckle,tangerine, apricot, and creme brulee literally jump from the glass a vivid, exotic wine, that is constantly changing in the glass. Stylistically, the 2010 is a little richer than Mount Eden fans are used to, but all the elements are in the right place. The 2010 verges on the edge of tropical aromas and flavors that are quite rare for young Mount Eden Chardonnays. Ideally, the 2010 is best left alone for a few years to allow some of the baby fat to drop off. I imagine it will always be a bit on the exotic sideWinemakers NotesThe style of this vintage is exactly what I desire: pale lemon color; subtle, complex aromas of bread yeast, lanolin, and gardenia flower. Penetrating yet light on the palate, this Chardonnay has a delicious combination of soil and leesy reduction flavors giving lift and interest. As always, a lengthy aftertaste indicates a long life in the wine cellar. Three years after harvest, the 2010 Estate Chardonnay is just starting to 'kick in'. Time will tell but this might be one of our best vintages in the last ten years. CHARDONNAY Wine CALIFORNIA STILL WINE read more
