Mount Eden has been working toward this vintage style for a long time. The new blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot along with 3% Cabernet Franc reflects what we feel best suits our mountain terroir. (After all we’ve been thinking about it for twenty-five years.)
Consistent with all of our estate wines, the yields are small, the berries are small, and the wine is big; yet the tannins, so critical in Cabernet, are softer, allowing the black cherry-dark chocolate melange to speak more clearly.
