Critical Acclaim

Wine & Spirits
The delicacy of this pinot noir keeps it airy even as its red fruit saturates the texture and some youthful reductive notes close it off. That green-onion tension gives way to briny notes of seaweed and beach grass, the oak adding a smoky undertone. In 2007, Mount Eden purchased this Saratoga property, formerly known as Cinnabar, and renamed it Domaine Eden. One ridge to the north of Mount Eden, it’s where Jeffrey Patterson now grows this pinot noir on a north-facing slope.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Domaine Eden Pinot Noir would give many AOC red Burgundies a run for the money. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits Old World nuances that are fresh and pleasing. Its fragrant aromas and flavors of savory spices and lively fruit should pair nicely with broiled lamb chops. (Tasted: August 19, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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.

Wine Enthusiast

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.
