Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Cruz Mountains|
|Brand||Mount Eden Vineyards|
In my 38 years making wine on this mountaintop, I have never seen such a low yielding Cabernet vintage. Averaging at best one-half ton per acre, it was confounding. While there is not much of it, it is certainly delicious-a classic nose of cassis with the added complexity of plum, bay and earthy sage. On the palate, there is concentration without heaviness, flavors of currant, raspberry, oak and earth-which speaks to our surrounding forest.
