K&L Notes

One of my personal favorite wineries in California is Mount Eden. Their fruit is grown on 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?--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 three 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. 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. Ten-plus years later the Domaine Eden label has become known at K&L for incredibly serious wines of amazing value; in fact a big secret is that quite often a big amount of the original Mount Eden Estate fruit makes it into these bottlings.

In the past the Domaine Eden Pinots have been delicious wines but in certain vintages they have not had a ton in common with their sibling, this is absolutely not the case with the heady and powerful 2013 vintage. Full of foresty aromatics, hints of warm spice and Amaro the nose is the first real tip off that this Pinot is on a whole other level. Dense and a touch compact in its youth, if you give this a touch of air, or a few years of patience, the reward is substantial with Asian plum, wild blackberry, fern frond and new leather flavors all with a subtle underlying tang and long finishing spiciness. This is so good right now and it’s going to be on the upslope for quite some time. I can only imagine how good this will be when it hits its apex in about 4-6 years.
