1995 Mount Eden Vineyards "Old Vine Reserve" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #300906 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The vibrant, deep, elegant wine from this long, cool vintage with harvest at the end of October is one of my favourites. It’s rich and plush yet very vibrant, with layers of cherries, plums, cassis, cigars, mint and more. There’s plenty of structure and an elegant silkiness to the tannins, and it’s going to live a long, long life. (EM) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 1995 growing season was a long and cool year, with the old vines for this cuvée picked on October 31st and 442 cases produced. The wine is stellar and at age twenty-one, just now getting ready for primetime drinking. The complex and very pure nose soars from the glass in a blaze of black cherries, cassis, menthol, dried eucalyptus, tobacco leaf, cigar smoke and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and really shows some old vine sappiness at the core, with suave, melting tannins, impeccable focus and grip, blossoming complexity and a very, very long and very refined finish. Another absolutely gorgeous bottle of cabernet! (Drink between 2016-2050) 95+ Inner quote mark (5/2016)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vine Reserve was bottled unfiltered, but was given a slight egg white fining. It is a backward, concentrated example in need of a decade of cellaring. Medium to full-bodied, with a deep ruby/purple color, and plenty of ripe cassis in the nose, it displays an unevolved, austere, formidably dense and muscular personality. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1998)

K&L Notes

Stylish wine that's more Bordeaux-like than Californian. Minty, currant and plum flavors lead the attack, with fine grain tannins giving texture and youth to the finish. Not a big wine in scale, it is more elegant and refined. Aged a full two years in new French wood. Should be perfect from 2000-2007. Actually 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and 3% Cab Franc. Less than 1600 cases produced.
