The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful fleshy wine laced with sweet tobacco, tar, game, grilled herbs and dark red raspberries. It shows fabulous depth and richness, with great personality. Firm tannins frame the finish in this exquisite beauty. The 2008 is more complex than the 2009 tasted alongside it, but will also require slightly more time. The blend is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot and 1% Malbec, all from five vineyards in Saratoga and Los Gatos. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2023.

Chunky and rough going from the get-go, this shows pronounced roasted herb and savory dried berry flavors that will require patience, as this wine often does. This also rewards cellaring, and it’s one of the few wines I’d lay down for a nap rather than tackle now. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is sourced from a mix of Mount Eden’s estate, Domaine Eden and three nearby vineyards owned by dear friends who spend a “king’s ransom” for perfection. The concept is to offer a Bordeaux-styled Cabernet which speaks of the Santa Cruz Mountains – specifically the mid-appellation. This is complementary to our historic Estate Cabernet which is solely from the vineyards at Mount Eden. The blend is always somewhat of a surprise as the varietal composition changes year to year. The 2008 is composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 % Cabernet France, 9% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec. Unfined, unfiltered, all fermentations were with native yeasts. Nothing added, nothing taken away. The wine is as expected: Savory not sweet (aka Napa Cabs) with complex elegant berry fruit of black currant and black cherries with tell-tale chalky-earth notes that bespeak of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Worthy of cellaring for 10-15 years, it is an incredible value.
