Sitting peacefully at 2000 ft in a glorious pocket of serenity just one hour South of San Francisco is one of the most historic vineyard sites in all of the New World. The peaks and valleys of the Santa Cruz Mountains whisper truths and historic tales of California's past. A throw back region that is poised to reign supreme among the more popular wine destinations in the States.
Mount Eden would be more at home in the Savoie or Gevrey-Chambertin than sharing space on a page with Napa Valley or Sonoma. But, it speaks of frontiers men & women who founded this country. Before the dot coms and Telsas jammed up the freeways, there were freedom searchers and dreamers that found their homes in the California mountain peaks and sleepy towns. These are those people! And they're worth supporting and fighting to preserve their legacy.
The wines of Mount Eden should be cherished and collected. They should be thought about and given the chance to be great. That is up to us to carry this torch. These wines need to be sought after and given wonderful homes next to the Grand Cru Burgundies and First Growths in any ones cellar. To think the wines of Mount Eden are still far undervalued in the market is unbelievable.
