Product Description

The 2013 Mount Eden Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is massive. There is a depth of flavor, texture, vibrancy, freshness, and richness not seen before by the owner/winemaker Jeffrey Patterson. The nuanced nose reveals black  currant, graphite, and our surrounding mountain flora. On the palate, it has a stunning richness to balance the abundant tannin and acid. Per Jeffrey Patterson, "We pride ourselves on our 'old world' style, and I cannot say if I have made a more compelling vin de garde in the last thirty years."

Varietal Composition: 85 Cabernet Sauvignon, 7 Merlot, 5 Cabernet Franc, 3 Petit Verdot
Appellation: Santa Cruz Mountains AVA
Aging: 100 barrel fermented, then 23 months in 50 percent French oak (50% new, 50 percent 2-year old) and 50 percent American oak (50 percent new, 50 percent 2-year old)

95 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"There's an unparalleled woody intensity on the nose of this offering, with cigar box, myrrh, incense and bay leaf decorating the black peppercorn, herb-laced salt, dark chocolate and black plum aromas. The palate's leathery flavors are woven into fine-grained tannins, revealing flashes of elderberry, violet and gravel." -MK, 12/1/17

94+ Points - Vinous Media
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is wine of real pedigree and class that is going to need at least a handful of years to enter the prime of its drinking window. Blackberry jam, grilled herbs, smoke and plum all resonate on the palate. Inky, deep and plush, the 2013 remains quite primary. I will not be surprised at all if the 2013 develops into an even better wine with time. That said, the 2013 is positively striking today, with compelling inner sweetness, tons of perfume and exceptional balance. -AG, Aug 2017

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Firmly built, with structure, focus and density, this offers a mix of taut dark berry, graphite, loamy earth, crushed rock and dried herb. A wine apart from the pack. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,198 cases made." -JL, 10/31/17
