Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2007

Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 750ML 2007     UNTEDEN VINEY 
Sku: 11117

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.

Rating
 MO UNTEDEN VINEY points
The Mount Eden 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate possesses a solid core of dark red fruit supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins. It is a typical mountain vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that needs time in the bottle to come together. The finish is sweet and inviting. The blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14 % Merlot and 1.5% each Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
