Tasting Note                         

88    1999 Mount Eden Vnyds Edna Val. Chard.    6/11/04($18)

Rich pear fruit with good acidity and a mineral component to make interesting. Not young, but not old either. A middleweight showing some developed flavors that indicate it’s ready. Drinks like a cross between St. Cruz Mtns and St Barbara Chard. Like the style with just enough oak present(it doesn’t stick out, but you know it’s there).
