Review: 2007 Villa Mt. Eden Pinot Noirs

Share

Two new Pinot Noirs from this ancient Napa Valley winery (founded in 1881) — and from two very different parts of California — arrived this week. Here’s what we thought.

2007 Villa Mt. Eden Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley Bien Nacido Vineyard – This southern California Pinot offers a bright cherry nose, with a tart and lean body. Nice cola character on the palate, but otherwise it’s a pretty simple and uncomplicated — though easy to drink and quite food friendly — expression of Pinot Noir. B+

2007 Villa Mt. Eden Pinot Noir Russian River Valley – A more challenging rendition of Pinot, with a peppery nose, and a distinct menthol character. A Pinot with edge, crafted in more of a Burgundian style than the New World Bien Nacido wine. Worth exploring, but a little overpowering for a wine that should be delicate. B
