There is so much to say about our Cabernet: it is grown at elevation in a coastal mountain range, quite rare. The vines are mature, planted in 1979 and 1984 from budwood sourced in the 1890's from Chateaux Margaux. These vines are low-yielding, averaging just above one ton per acre, allowing our terroir to express its highest level. Cabernet has been made here since the 1950s and since the beginning they have shown a remarkable ability to age; thirty and forty years-old bottles are still remarkably vibrant and fresh.

Wine EnthusiastOnce 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 SpectatorCreamy dill and cedar-laced oak notes are front and center, making for a chewy, woody drink, muscling past the dark berry fruit. Best from 2021 through 2031. 1,192 cases made.
