Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Santa Cruz Mountains, California

Domaine Eden is a mountaintop wine estate purchased by Mount Eden Vineyards in 2007. Modeled after Mount Eden, it was founded and built by the late Tom Mudd in 1983, who initially planted the Mount Eden clonal selections of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, which evolved to include Pinot Noir from various Dijon and California selections. This is the former home of Cinnabar Winery. 2017 vintage – 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malec. Aged in 50% French oak (10% new), and 50% American oak (10% new). “Fresh, vibrant aromas of red raspberry and loamy earth merge with a concentrated palate of currant, earth notes, and characteristic iron.” – from the Winery
