Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2005

Mount Eden Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 750ML 2005     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
MountEden 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
A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc, the dense ruby-hued 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts a sweet nose of incense, toast, charcoal, and red as well as black fruits. Elegant with a first class Bordeaux-like structure, moderate tannin, and outstanding purity and length, it will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 15-20. Atypically restrained and subtle for a California Cabernet, this cuvee comes from a mountain vineyard, and it possesses a totally different texture than one normally finds in Napa Cabernets.
