ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "Readers will find plenty to get excited about in these new releases from Mount Eden. In particular, the 2011 Chardonnay Read More...
is outrageously beautiful. Proprietor Jeffrey Patterson has been making reference point wines for decades, yet for some reason Mount Eden flies under the radar. That won't always be the case. In top vintages, these are among the most compelling wines in California. Patterson takes a pretty minimalist approach in the cellar. The wines are all done with native yeasts and are bottled unfined and unfiltered. Patterson describes 2012 as an easy growing season with a late bud break and otherwise very even conditions, with no heat spikes, all of which resulted in a large crop. By comparison, 2011 also saw a late bud-break, but ill-timed harvest just as the Chardonnay and Pinot were in bloom lowered yields significantly.

"Rosewater, savory herbs, bright red fruit and mint wrap around the palate in Mount Eden's 2012 Pinot Noir. Intensely aromatic, lifted and perfumed, the 2012 shows good balance in a mid-weight style best suited to near and medium-term drinking. Owing to the abundant harvest, the 2012 is a bit lighter than some other recent vintages, but it is quite pretty just the same. As always, the 2012 includes a good amount of whole clusters, 40% to be specific."
