Picked by hand in the cool of the coastal night, these grapes were hand-sorted at the winery before being destemmed into stainless open-top fermenters. After a short cold soak, the ferments were inoculated with cultured yeasts and fermented for 8 to 14 days, punching down the caps twice a day by hand to gently extract color and flavor. The wine was pressed to oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Mount Eden’s 2010 Chardonnay Wolff Vineyard wraps around the palate with hints of almonds, honey, fennel and dried pears. The Wolff Vineyard, from a site in Edna Valley, is made in a slightly more forward style than the rest of the Domaine/Mount Eden Chardonnays. Slightly burnished notes add complexity on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015." - Antonio Galloni (Aug 2012)

The Talley Vineyard lies in Arroyo Grande Valley in the southern part of San Luis Obispo County. Our two acre parcel of Pinot Noir is in the West Rincon block and is on a gentle east facing slope, on a fairly light clay loam (probably a mixture of marine and volcanic material).  Our block is planted to three different clones, two of which are early maturing, light bearing so called “Dijon” clones. The other is an older, slightly later maturing clone named “Pommard”, after the village in Burgundy where it was originally selected. For me, and many other sommeliers, this is the finest Pinot Noir property in the southern part of the Central Coast of California

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Bright purple.  Smoky, oak-spiced aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice, with a hint of pungent flowers.  Broad and fleshy on entry, then firmer in the middle, with very good depth to its dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors.  Finishes with solid tannic grip and very good spicy persistence.  This wine benefits from decanting." - Josh Raynolds (Nov/Oct '11)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2010 vintage):
"The 2010 Chardonnay is one of the top values in California wine. It possesses tons of ripe, varietal fruit in a style that is quite rich but not heavy. Clean citrus and floral notes add freshness on the long finish. Lees stirring gives the wine much of its richness, while aging in steel helps maintain freshness. There is remarkable depth and textural finesse here, never mind a price that is mind-boggling for this level of quality. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014." - Antonio Galloni (Aug 2011)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Very Burgundian in its understated display of rich, earthy cherry and wild berry flavors. Sleek and focused, with supple, polished tannins and hints of anise, exotic spice and cedary oak. The flavors are long and persistent. A tremendous buy at $28. Drink now through 2008. 1,900 cases made." –JL (Aug 31, 2004)

Artisan Wine Depot Price: $18.99
You save $7.01!

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Pale yellow. Musky, powerfully scented aromas of orchard fruits, smoky lees, truffle and iodine; smells like a top-notch Chassagne. Weighty and round but sharply focused, offering fresh pear, peach, tangerine and buttered toast flavors. The iodine element returns on the long, smoky finish. Lots going on here, especially for the price." (May/June 11)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Tart and sleek, with a citrus, tangerine and grapefruit profile supported by bracing acidity, yet it works well. An ideal companion for oysters and shell fish. Drink now through 2016." (06/11)
