• Mount Eden Vineyards 2016 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

We know this as the vineyard site that has produced PN almost continuously since 1943, from Martin Ray to the current day. The nose of this sadly short vintage is pretty and delicate with bright light raspberry, bing cherry, blood orange, light flowers, and a bit of cedar. The palate is lighter than the 2015 with good acid and a flavor set that tends toward the light red berry and savory spice tone.  D&M Tasting Notes

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.
