ABOUT THE WINERY
Villa Mt. Eden is one of the few wineries established around the 1880s that exists today, among the good company of Beringer, Chateau Montelena and Far Niente.
Under McGrath’s 25 years of leadership, Villa Mt. Eden earned five placements on Wine Spectator’s annual “Top 100” and many best value accolades. Villa Mt. Eden also moved production facilities up the road on the Silverado Trail. Today Villa Mt. Eden’s mission is to showcase distinguished regions and vineyards of California, crafting elegant wines with fruit intensity and a focus on place.
ABOUT THE WINE
This dark ruby colored Russian River Pinot Noir offers intense blueberry and raspberry aromas with hints of cedar, earthy leather, sweet vanilla oak, and spicy cinnamon, followed by a softly elegant palate that achieves a perfect balance of fresh fruit, acidity, and soft tannins. A medium-bodied beauty which shows the elegance and quality of the Russian River AVA, this is a very easy to drink wine with a medium to long fruity finish.
