2014 Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 800 cases, $65. · Dark garnet color in the glass. Plenty of new-sawn oak on the nose along with aromas of boysenberry and root beer. A mid-weight plus styled wine with a plethora of well-ripened purple and black berry fruits with a hint of raisin and savory, toasted herbs. A gutsy wine but refined, with a welcoming suave texture and commendable balance. Unchanged when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. Score: 93. Reviewed September 19, 2021
