Tasting Notes

92 points Robert Parker: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vine Reserve is more highly extracted than the 1995, as well as full-bodied, with a saturated ruby/purple color, and a restrained but blossoming nose of minerals, licorice, spicy oak, black cherries, and cassis. Pure, rich, dense, and promising, but destined for considerable longevity, this is a wine that should be cellared for 8-10 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2035. Old Vine, Mount Eden's flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two parcels planted in 1955 and 1958. I was impressed with both the 1995 and 1996." (12/98) And, according to Wine Spectator: "Firm without being tight, it's complex and concentrated, with focused currant, wild berry and raspberry. Shows tannic strength on the finish." (12/99)
