2010 Domaine Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1155868 92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark **Best Buy** Jeffrey Patterson draws on a handful of vineyards—including the Mount Eden estate—to blend this delicious, rustic, well-priced mountain Cabernet. The cool 2010 vintage grew a wine carried by juicy acidity as much as tannins, the flavors tending toward black trumpet mushrooms and tobacco instead of overt fruit. It’s sappy yet elegant, just the thing for a rich autumn dinner that starts with roasted bone marrow and a bowl of chestnut soup. Inner quote mark (10/2014)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, accessible wine to drink now and over the next few years. Bright, beautifully focused aromatics meld into dark red cherries and plums in this hugely appealing, medium-bodied Cabernet. The 2010 is a beautifully nuanced and complex Cabernet from Domaine Eden. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Distinct jalapeño aromas come alongside plum, boysenberry and star anise on this Cab from the team at historic Mount Eden. The green pepper fades to the background on the palate, where ripe plum and woody flavors meet with present but not overpowering tannins. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Bright crimson. Sweet and round but not heavy and certainly not hot. Lively and succulent. Excellent balance. Inner quote mark (4/2014)

K&L Notes

The elevations and complex topography of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA allow both Pinot Noir (generally in the more ocean-influenced west) and Cabernet Sauvignon to thrive. The Domaine Eden Cabernet is treated similarly to historic Mount Eden's estate Cabernet program. It's a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot with Petit Verdot and Malbec from Mount Eden, Domaine Eden and three plots in the warmer Saratoga and Los Gatos areas. From the winery's notes: "While the Estate is a singular voice, the Domaine is a chorus. Complex, given the five varieties in the cepage, this Cabernet has aromas of briary currant, sage, mint and sweet oak.... Youthful aromas of cassis, leather, and currant are enticing. The palate is deceptively lithe yet with penetrating, nuanced blackberry, sage, and forest floor flavors. Medium-long on the finish with an overall expression of harmony and balance, this Cabernet is a lovely reflection of a cool year in a cool area."
