Type: Red Table Wine
Vintage: 2014

“Once again, this more affordable “younger brother” to the Mount Eden bottling competes with gusto. Including 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec, it shows savoury black plum, black pepper, char, leather and dried herb aromas on the nose. The palate is hearty and almost salty tasting, with beef, charred black fruit, pine resin and caramel flavours. Very satisfying and full of umami characteristics.”

“The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Domaine Eden is a touch more reserved today than it was a year ago, opening in the glass with aromas of crushed wild berries, raspberries, raw cocoa and tobacco, all framed by cedary new oak. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a nicely layered mid-palate, fine tannins and a tangy finish. Cellar it for a couple of years and then follow it for a decade or more.”
