Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Appellation||Santa Cruz Mountains|
Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. Once again, this more affordable "younger brother" to the Mount Eden bottling competes with gusto. Including 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, it shows savory black plum, black pepper, char, leather and dried herb aromas on the nose. The palate is hearty and almost salty tasting, with beef, charred black fruit, pine resin and caramel flavors. Very satisfying and full of umami characteristics.
Wine SpectatorPowerful and complex, uncommonly distinctive and layered, with savory dark berry, cedar, graphite, road tar and cigar box nuances. Best from 2021 through 2032. 2,091 cases made.
