Available for:
Mount Eden Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a Bordeaux-style blend of 78% Cabernet, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. This high mountain, cool coastal vineyard is an unusual site for California Cabernet Sauvignon, reflecting its refreshing acidity and moderate alcohol. Fine integrated tannins buttress characteristic flavors of red currant, blackberry and earth. Recommended cellaring is ten to fifteen years.

"Cellar Selection" Extremely elegant and restrained at first on the nose, this bottling eventually shows gravel and crushed rocks, with hints of blackberry and forest underbrush also emerging. A very firm structure weaves together an incredibly well-integrated wine, with dense mulberry and dried-fennel notes that morph into crushed herbs with time. Drink 2018-2032.

Claret-style in the range of ripeness, flavors, structure and use of cedary, tobacco-shaded oak, this wins points for the understated elegance and restraint, a style rarely seen in California these days but one with appeal. Drink now through 2026. 1,636 cases made.
