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.

"Often the most overlooked wine in the Mount Eden range, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the pedigree of this great vintage. Firm veins of tannin support a core of black fruit, tar, grilled herbs, smoke and incense in a wild, savory mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that dazzles with its exceptional overall balance and personality. This is another fabulous new release from Mount Eden."

"Mount Eden's 2011 Chardonnay is simply magnificent. Intense and tightly-coiled from the very first taste, the 2011 pulsates with energy, texture and pure class. Bright citrus, lemon oil, flowers and crushed rocks are all vivid in the glass, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. The long, vibrant finish is a thing of beauty. In 2011, winemaker Jeffrey Patterson did not make a Reserve, instead all of the juice went into the straight Chardonnay. Readers who want to understand why the Santa Cruz Mountains is one of the world's great terroirs for Chardonnay should start here. Quite simply, the 2011 Chardonnay is a, reference-point for California. The only question is how long it will take to come around."

"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."
