U.S.A. > California > Santa Cruz

This utterly unique California Cabernet Sauvignon - sourced from old vine plantings propagated from 19th century Chateau Margaux cuttings - is very expressive on the nose with scents of brown spice, plum, cherry, and of course, black currant. Relatively restrained tannins on the palate with flavors of currant, sage, and mint. This wine is powerful yet with beautiful restraint. 

Earthy nose with notes of spicy oak and black fruits. Very firm tannic structure, fresh and elegant - Michelle Cherutti-Kowal MW & James Doidge MW & Stefan Neumann MS, Decanter

94/100 - Mushroomy aromas of stewed shiitake and dark mahogany meet with crisp fruit on the nose of this complex bottling. Very dry tannins frame the sip in a serious veil, as flavors of sandalwood, graphite and dried dark fruit converge. This wine will last a long time. - Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast

The nature of high-altitude, cool, coastal Bordeaux blends is refreshingly different. Lower alcohols and more soil-driven flavors with good acidity are what Mount Eden delivers, with their constant theme, longevity, always present.

In 2018, although technically a drought year, the harvest started in late September and ran until mid-October. Cool temperatures prevailed, allowing for a relaxed pace. All fermentations were natural, with no additions. After two years in barrel, it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Distinctive aromas of blackberry, black pepper, cardamom, sage and earth.
The flavours are rich and balanced, with impressive depth.
Mount Eden is one of only two estate-bottled Cabernets in its area - the other being Ridge's Monte Bello.
Drink up to 20 years after release.
Match with grilled or barbecued red meats.

Winery History
Mount Eden Vineyards is, without question, one of California’s most important and historic winemaking estates. Originally planted by legendary (not to mention maverick) winemaker Martin Ray back in the 1940s, Mount Eden has been witness to its fair share of joy, disaster and intrigue over the years.

Since 1981 things have settled down on the mountain, after winemaker Jeffrey Patterson... Read More >>
