The 1995 is a deeply layered vintage. Complex red
fruits with accents of blueberry, mint, and French oak fill the nose. The palate impression is elegant and long, continuing the intensity of the strawberry, cherry flavors with forest pine. Medium tannins and a ripe sweetness gives length and flavor echo to the finish.
This wine was neither fined nor filtered in order to preserve all of the natural essence. We count this as one
of our successes in this, the longest lineage of estate bottled Pinot Noir in America.
Mount Eden Vineyards is a small historic wine estate located on a 2000-foot peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Founded in 1942 by Martin Ray, their estate vineyards have consistently produced world-class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon for over a half-century. In addition to their estate wines, they purchase Chardonnay grapes from the mature MacGregor Vineyard in the Edna Valley Appellation outside of San Luis Obispo.
