Mount Eden Vineyards Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$44.99

              New release of the Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains from Mount Eden winery - one of the best buys in California Cabernet this year. 92 Points Wine Enthusiast:  "The more affordable little sister of Mount Eden, this wine, which is bolstered by 15% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, offers black plum, wet river stones, dusty herbs and wood spice on the nose. The palate focuses on minerality, structure and savory flavors, including subtle lavender and black plum. The structure will last for ages. Drink 2020–2036. Matt Kettmann." 91 Points Antionio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, pliant and fruity, with lovely aromatic nuances that add an attractive upper register to the red cherry and plum fruit. Sweet floral overtones develop with a bit of time in the glass. The 2016 offers tons of fleshiness in the understated, gracious style of the year here. Best of all, it will drink well upon release. Domaine Eden is a terrific source for highly nuanced wines that convey plenty of Santa Cruz Mountains character at mid-tier prices, all in the same super-classic style found at sister property Mount Eden."

Surely one of the finest Cabernet made in California in terms of the aromatic complexity, but one can find better wines for less from Bordeaux. There is not enough mineral tension force one gets from the top domaines in Bordeaux, Burgundy and Rhone.

Tannins, dark berries. Excellent, esp for the money.

Will need to give this another try. Was not the right situation to have this so will not rate at this point.
