The 1995 regular cuveacute;e of Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, sees 30% new American oak and 70% used French barrels. The dark ruby/purple-colored 1995 offers a firm, restrained nose of black currants, minerals, earth, and spicy oak. Medium-bodied, moderately tannic, and firmly structured, it requires 2ndash;3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15+ years.

Open every stop on your cabernet church organ: Pure cassis. Mountain freshness. Baking spice. The pencil lead of Graves in that less-than-overripe varietal character. This is unadulterated cabernet pleasure, three words that have never come together in my mind before. Grown at an elevation of 1,800 feet, 14 miles from the coast, this vineyard traces its heritage back to Chateau Margaux, where Emmett Rixford selected cuttings for La Questa in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated cuttings from those vines to plant Mount Eden in the 1940s, replanted in the 1980s with a selection from Rayandrsquo;s vines. Between the cool site, the exceptional vintage and the pedigree of the vines, this is a true California classic.

The Mount Eden 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate possesses a solid core of dark red fruit supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins. It is a typical mountain vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that needs time in the bottle to come together. The finish is sweet and inviting. The blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 1.5% each Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014andndash;2022.

Bright ruby. Seductive aromas of red- and blackcurrant, singed plum, mocha and minerals, with a smoky overtone. Sappy and smooth in the mouth, with a compelling sweetness to its layered dark berry and cherry flavors. Deep but very energetic, with Pauillac-like iron and tobacco notes and building floral character. The finish is gently tannic, sweet and extremely long. Thereandrsquo;s 14% merlot and 1.5% each of cabernet franc and petit verdot in here.

Winemaker's Notes:

2007 was an historic drought year. Seventeen inches of rain fell, which was the lowest amount since 1977. I was expecting the worst but was pleasantly surprised that the vines grew normally and yielded the desired amount - just less than two tons per acre. In the world of California Cabernet the 2007 vintage is gaining in reputation and for good reason. Moderate temperatures throughout the summer with a glorious cool, dry autumn ripened the late-season Sauvignon completely without becoming overripe. From the October 2011 issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine comes this review and 98 points: Open every stop on your cabernet church organ: Pure cassis. Mountain freshness. Baking spice. The pencil lead of Graves in that less-than-overripe varietal character. This is unadulterated cabernet pleasure, three words that have never come together in my mind before. ...Between the cool site, the exceptional vintage and pedigree of the vines, this is a true California classic.
