Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010

Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010

750ML    
Sku: 022269

Our present-day estate cabernet sauvignon vines were planted in the early 1980ís using cuttings taken from the vines originally planted in the 1950ís by Martin Ray. Although they are relatively young, yields are still low, typically one to two tons per acre. The vines are trellised in a modern fashion, which allows for a more uniform ripening. The vineyard also contains small blocks of merlot and cabernet franc.

Tasting notes
Mount Eden Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a Bordeaux-style blend of approximately 75% Cabernet, 22% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, although the cepage varies by vintage. This high mountain, cool coastal vineyard is an unusual site for California Cabernet Sauvignon, reflecting its refreshing acidity and moderate alcohol. Fine integrated tannins buttress characteristic flavors of red currant, blackberry and earth. Recommended cellaring is ten to fifteen years.
