K&L Notes

One of our favorite wineries in California is Mount Eden. It is a truly special vineyard and the folks behind the scenes couldn't be more dedicated to their craft and to the quality of the wines if they wanted to be. For decades Mount Eden has made some of the best Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon all from the same vineyard, all for supremely reasonable prices. So a few years back we became even more excited when they told us they were going to make a new sister wine called Domaine Eden and bottle all 3 varietals they have become known for under this label. This took place in about 2007, right around the time that they purchased a second, noncontiguous estate just a few minutes down the road. This old estate was fully planted with some top notch, mature vines and had a reputation in its own right as the old Cinnabar Estate Vineyard. 10+ years later the Domaine Eden label has become known at K&L for incredibly serious wines for amazing values, in fact a big secret is that quite often a big amount of the original Mount Eden Estate fruit makes it into these bottlings.

    Domaine Eden historically produces some of California's finest wines, with little to no manipulation or fining. The 2013 Chardonnay is medium-bodied with a rich texture and condensed, focused flavor. Aged in French oak. Aromas of fresh pineapple and caramel entice, and the palate, though rich, is cut with a wet quartz minerality and a lovely earthy quality, and bright acidity creates a clean impression and balance. This is a truly exceptional value for California Chardonnay connoisseurs.

    One of my personal favorite wineries in California is Mount Eden. It is a truly special vineyard and the folks behind the scenes couldn’t be more dedicated to their craft and to the quality of the wines if they wanted to be. For decades Mount Eden has made some of the best Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon all from the same vineyard-is there another vineyard anywhere in the world that pulls this off?-all for supremely reasonable prices. So a few years back I was even more excited when they told me they were going to make a new sister wine called Domaine Eden and bottle all 3 varietals they have become known for. This took place in about 2007, right around the time that they purchased a second, noncontiguous estate just a few minutes down the road.

The pretty nose is layered impeccably with notes of vanilla, caramel, grilled white corn and edges of honeysuckle brightness. Lifting and vibrant there is a fun interplay between the zesty tangerine and Clementine high tones and the more rich, dense flavors of toasted brioche, drop biscuits and a continuation of the vanilla found in the nose. Slick and fleshy this is about as good as it gets for Chardonnay under $30 and is a testament to just how great a job the team at Domaine/Mount Eden does with Chardonnay.
