We are head over heels in love with this Cabernet from Mount Eden. Great structure and powerful tannins and a wine that’s truly built to last.

From the winemaker:

The 2013 vintage was interesting: All of the rainfall occurred before January 1st, and we encountered a drought-induced early budbreak which led to an early harvest (even though it is seven months away.) The style of this wine is massive. There is a depth of flavor, texture, vibrancy, freshness, and richness I have not seen before. 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. 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.
