Domaine Eden Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Cruz Mountains|
Gamy aromas of roasted pork and a wet stone mineraliy surround the plush cranberry fruit on the nose of this bottling. There's a floral edge to the palate, from rose petal to violet, as well as light red-currant and more game flavors.
Delicate, with silky tannins and rich acidity backing a lively mix of cherry turnover and spice flavors, which extend on the supple and open-textured finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,999 cases made.
The 2018 Pinot Noir is also impressive, with lots of Burgundian style in its aromatics of ripe cherries, wood smoke, forest floor, spice, and earth. These carry to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a focused, firm, yet elegant texture, good acidity, and outstanding length. It shows the house style nicely and will benefit from another year in bottle and keep through 2028. I'd be happy to drink a bottle at dinner.
