Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2013 Santa Cruz Mountains California Red Wine 750 mL

$76.99

“The style of this wine is massive. There is a depth of flavor, texture, vibrancy, freshness, and richness I have not seen before. The nuanced nose reveals black currant, graphite, and our surrounding mountain flora. On the palate, it has a stunning richness to balance the abundant tannin and acid. We pride ourselves on our “old world” style, and I cannot say if I have made a more compelling vin de garde in the last thirty years. ” -The Winemaker

Main Points for Presentation: •Our estate vineyards have been growing Cabernet since the late 1940’s •13 acres: 9.75 acres Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.9 Merlot, .4 Cabernet Franc, .2 Petit Verdot •Cool coast vineyard, which results in a lower alcohol, yet full flavored wine that ages gracefully •Vineyard planted in 1981-1982 •Fermented in small open top tanks, using natural yeast •Macerated 14 days on the skins, punched down by hand •Wine is racked six or seven times during the course of its two year barrel aging

“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is developing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cassis, tobacco, bay laurel, dark chocolate and rich soil. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, multidimensional and concentrated, with wonderful savory depth, fine grained but firm tannins and a long, taut and tangy finish. While this is firmly shut down today, its potential for the future is fully evident: expect it to begin to come into its own around its tenth birthday.” -Wine Advocate, 96 pts
