1980 Mount Eden Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #901234 91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 1980 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Mount Eden is a fine bottle, with again a very black fruity personality, but it is a bit riper than the ’82 paired up with it and now quite wide open and ready for primetime drinking. The bouquet offers up a blend of dark berries, road tar, cigar ash, scorched earth, dried eucalyptus and just a touch of roasted game in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with fine balance, quite moderate tannins, a very respectable core and nice bounce from good acidity on the long and à point finish. This is quite different in personality from the middleweight 1982, but comparable in quality. (Drink between 2016-2035) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

K&L Notes

According to the Wine Spectator's California Wine book: "Mature, with earthy currant flavors that turn tannic." (1995)
