Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

The genesis of Mount Eden Vineyards was the arrival of Burgundian winemaker Paul Masson to San Jose, California, in 1878. Masson soon established a vineyard and winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains near Mount Eden, where he became a well know bon vivant. Martin Ray, who grew up in the foothills below Mount Eden, became acquainted with the charismatic Frenchman and, shortly after Prohibition's repeal, purchased Paul Masson's Champagne Company. Notoriety came quickly. At a time when most California wines were blended from various, often inferior, grape varieties, noble grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were virtually unknown. The mercurial Ray began producing 100% varietal table wines, boasting that California could vinify world class wines to rival those of France. In the 1930s, it seemed a ridiculous, foolhardy claim. Wanting to establish his own brand, Ray sold the Paul Masson property in 1943 and, that following year purchased a higher peak to the north, Mount Eden. In 1945 he planted his first vineyard there. The varieties were Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (Cabernet Sauvignon was added in the 1950's), and the mountain became his home. Ray named his wine domain simply "Martin Ray." Read less

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.

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.

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 itandrsquo;s one of the few wines Iandrsquo;d lay down for a nap rather than tackle now. Best from 2015 through 2025.

The Domaine Eden 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive, pretty wine layered with bright red fruit, flowers and spices. It is best suited to near-term enjoyment. Small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec round out the blend. The Cabernet Sauvignon was made from six different vineyards across the estate. Anticipated maturity 2011andndash;2015.
