Below is the October, 2009 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:

2005 Mount Eden Vineyards

"Saratoga Cuvee"

Santa Cruz Mountains, California

 

2005 Mount Eden Vineyards Saratoga CuveeMount Eden Vineyards is a small historic wine estate located on a 2000-foot peak in the Santa Cruz Mountain appellation about 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Founded in 1945, it is recognized as one of the original “boutique” California winery properties, focusing on small lots of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Santa Cruz Mountains have long been producing wines of renown. Few of the oldest vineyards survived Prohibition, but many new ones have sprouted up to take their place. In 1981 the Santa Cruz Mountains Viticultural Appellation was formally recognized as one of the first American viticultural areas.

The wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 2% Syrah, 1% Malbec, and 1% Petit Verdot, aged 24 months in French and American barrels.

2005 was a great vintage for California Cabernet. Aromas of currant and lovely red raspberry greet your nose. A little tannin and loads of currant and raspberry flavors fill your mouth.

Only 1,169 cases were produced.
