Mount Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2014

"This Chardonnay has aromas that are penetrating with lemon, hazelnut, and gardenia blossom. It is invigorating on the palate, with flavors of lemon, earth, and pear. Super long on the finish, this predicts a twenty-year life in the bottle." —winemaker

"The 2014 Chardonnay Estate from Mount Eden is terrific, offering up a youthful bouquet of buttered apples, pear, toasted nuts and brioche that reveals more and more nuance as it sits in the glass. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, pure and racy, with a satiny attack, deep core and bright acids. The finish is long and mouthwateringly chalky. This is one of the best recent releases of the Estate Chardonnay, and it comes warmly recommended." —William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

"The 2014 Chardonnay Estate comes from 43% of the average yields (it was a tiny crop due to the drought) and was barrel fermented in 70% new French oak and aged 10 months on lees before bottling. It’s another youthful, slightly reserved Chardonnay that's going to benefit from cellaring. Brioche, buttered citrus, almond paste and honeysuckle all give way to a beautifully balanced, layered, rich effort that has vibrant acidity as well. There’s 1,495 cases." —JebDunnuck.com
