Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Editorial Reviews for Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon
Just gorgeous on the nose, sharp and savory with coffee and green herb accents to the core of meaty dark berry fruit. The oak impact is modest here adding an attractive burnt sugar and spice note but not becoming intrusive. Absolutely fresh, precise and transparent on the palate with a tense mouthfeel supporting simple if pure and vibrant fruit that never seems overwrought. There’s some mineral notes as well, adding a little complexity. Absolutely gorgeous and drinking at peak. 93pts
External Reviews for Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon
Vinous and bright, this is a claret with red-fruited intensity. It has the cool freshness of Santa Cruz Mountain cabernet, dark and woodsy with the gentle richness of savory fruit tannins. Decant it for venison chops.
Even sexier than the 2008, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as considerably sweeter and rounder than its older sibling. Layers of expressive fruit linger on the radiant, juicy finish. This is an especially open and expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. The sweet tannins should allow it to drink beautifully upon release. The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2019.
