Domaine Eden Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains 2016
Just like the Chardonnay...enough said:
The 2016 Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and notions of eucalyptus, forest floor, cool blueberries, raspberry and sweet strawberry preserves with prosciutto, faint hints of dried herbs, wild blackberries and an orange peel note. The palate is light to medium-bodied with an intense core of perfumed fruit, a soft, grainy frame and juicy acidity, finishing with pretty berry notes.
From Mount Eden’s more affordable sister property comes this heady bottling, which begins with aromas of dark red fruit and freshly laid asphalt. The palate is immensely earthy, with more tar and a touch of singed boar skin, yet set against a dark raspberry and cranberry profile. Drink 2020–2031. Cellar Selection.
A Burgundy with no tariff.
