Domaineeden cabernetsauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Domaine Eden

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.

Reviews

  • "92 points. 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." (Wine & Spirits)
  • "90 points. 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." (vinous)
