Product Description

The 2014 Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay was produced in an extreme drought year, with a mere 14 inches of rain falling on their dry-farmed vineyards. Harvested in mid-August (very early!), the fruit was surprising — with full acidity and flavor. This Chardonnay has aromas that are penetrating with lemon, hazelnut, and gardenia blossom. It is invigorating on the palate, with flavors of lemon, earth, and pear. Super long on the finish, this predicts a twenty-year life in the bottle.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Chardonnay, Mount Eden clone
Appellation: Santa Cruz Mountains AVA
Aging: 100 barrel fermented, then 11 months on fine lees in French oak barrels, 50 percent new, 50 percent 1-year old

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"An oil-like shade of yellow in the glass, this is still a baby, showing aromas of walnut, seared lemon, yogurt, white flowers, oak and smoke. The acidity is pure and strong, cutting through the nutty flavors and savory richness. Sea salt, browned butter, Meyer lemon peels and orange marmalade flavors will only grow more cohesive with time." -MK, 11/1/2017

93 points - Vinous Media
"The 2014 Chardonnay (Santa Cruz Mountains) is a rich, almost viscous wine endowed with palpable intensity in all of its dimensions. Orange peel, apricot, mint, wild flowers and chamomile are all nicely pushed forward. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, the 2014 possesses quite a bit of structure. Even so, it is the wine's precision and energy that I find most impressive at this stage. I would give the 2014 at least a few years to fully come together, as it is pretty tightly wound, even after a few hours of aeration." -AG, Aug 2017

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"The spicy oak is dominant, giving this a cedary flavor and texture, slowly rolling into a core of pear, melon, fig and apricot notes." -JL, 11/15/2017
