Mount Eden Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
2016 is a Bordeaux blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. The wine was aged in 50% new French and American oak for 22-months before bottling. Distinctive aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, mountain flora and subtle earth precede a firm, lush palate with intense blueberry, blackberry notes and a touch of flint. The palate is medium-bodied, yet it has an incredible intensity with no heaviness.
|Mount Eden’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon represents the essence of what Cabernet Sauvignon is all about in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Deep, powerful and explosive, the 2016 simply has it all. A wine of tremendous depth and intensity. Readers, take note. This is world class Cabernet Sauvignon that in any other region would cost 2-3 times as much. Savory and expansive, with tons of mountain character and remarkable richness from low yields in 2016, the Cabernet Sauvignon is simply off the charts. It’s another utterly breathtaking wine from Mount Eden.|
