Introducing Best of Class, Double Gold Medal, 98 Points
2019 Ektimo Estate Mt. Eden Clone Pinot Noir
Hot off the press, the results of the Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge results are in, Best of Class Winner 2019 Ektimo Estate Mt. Eden Clone Pinot Noir. The Mt. Eden is a heritage clone rumored to have its origins from the famed Romanee Conti vineyards in France, the judges agree it does pretty well here too. Just imagine how magnificent this wine will be when it matures to perfection!
The 2019 Estate "Mount Eden Clone" Pinot Noir is a more robust take on Pinot Noir, lithe and luscious yet with more body and substance, focused and precise. It rewards the more sophisticated palate with a veritable feast for the senses that will tantalize your palate and capture your imagination.
Deeper in color, richer in aroma and more concentrated on the palate, Crimson Passion Cherry, pomegranate and Thundercloud Plum flecked with savory notes and supple tannins as smooth as satin sheets. Simple yet creative food pairing possibilities abound like "Chicken Pinot Noir with Wild Mushrooms and Fresh Basil" or maybe the "Perfect Burrata and Prosciutto Crostini Appetizer".
Recognition of excellence was not just limited to the one wine. We are proud to share that we did quite well with our entries, so here are our top results;
