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.
Wine Advocate 91 points - A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is deeper, richer and more structured than the Domaine bottling. Its inky purple color is followed by a Pauillac-like nose of lead pencil shavings, blackcurrants, singed cedar and tobacco leaf. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon that has nicely integrated acidity, solid mid-palate depth and firm tannin, all of which should allow it to age gracefully for 15 years or more.  (Oct 2015)

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.
