Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck

I always love this Chardonnay from winemaker Jeffrey Patterson. The 2015 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains comes from an estate just south of Mount Eden that was purchased by Jeffrey in 2007. This wine is always a mix of both estates (Domaine Eden and Mount Eden) and also gets a touch of purchased fruit. The 2015 has wonderful freshness and purity, with vibrant white flowers and caramelized citrus, medium body, lots of salinity, and a pure, clean, age-worthy style. It can be drunk any time over the coming decade or more.

COMMENTARY: The 2015 Domaine Eden Chardonnay is an excellent value from the Santa Cruz Mountains. TASTING NOTES: This wine is rich, balanced, and long. Its aromas and flavors of stone fruit and earth stay long in the finish. Pair it with boiled lobsters in a cream sauce. (Tasted: August 19, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Like its bigger Mount Eden sister, this more affordable, usually more immediately accessible bottling needs time to open up. With patience, aromas of honeysuckle, oak and nuts provide a savory impression. The palate combines grapefruit pith and Meyer lemon rinds with savory salt and nuts.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay Estate from Domaine Eden is initially a touch reduced, opening with aeration to reveal pretty aromas of peach, yellow orchard fruit and toasted nuts. On the palate, it's glossy, medium to full-bodied and succulent, with bright acids and nicely grippy finish. Today, it's quite tight-knit, but with a year or two in bottle, it should really hit its stride.
