94 rating Vinous.com “The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is fabulous. A rush of floral and spice notes leads into a core of racy purplish fruit. Lavender, sage, mint and a whole range of savory Cabernet aromatics play off the natural richness of the year so well. The 2017 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from Domaine Eden plus non-estate vineyards in Los Gatos and Saratoga, along with Merlot and Cabernet Franc from Mount Eden. That blend works so well. I loved it for its power and density. More importantly, the 2017 is a huge overachiever and a screaming value.”

-Antonio Galloni

“A true Bordeaux blend encompassing the top five Bordeaux grapes varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (82%), Merlot (11%) and Cabernet Franc (4%) with small additions of Petit Verdot and Malbec. The lots are fermented separately using natural fermentations, and aged in 50/50 French and American oak (2-5 years old) for 2 years. No fining or filtration conducted prior to bottling, just like the Estate regimen. ” the distributor

Description

“Few wineries in California have the sort of history that is found at Mount Eden and few wineries in the world can match the level of quality being produced here. This is a unique terroir being overseen by conscientious stewards and these are wines that could not possibly have come from anywhere else in the world. It’s as pointless to compare these wines to Burgundy and Bordeaux as it is to compare them to the rest of California; these wines are Mount Eden, pure and simple. ” -the distributor
