(N0601-107) 16 MOUNT EDEN SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $87.95
U.S. Newly Available 06/01
Wine & Spirits 95: 'It's rare to find joyous cabernet: This is a wine with bounce to its black raspberry and red currant fruit, as if that succulent fruit were rising directly out of the warm, earthy tannins. Jeffrey Patterson grew this at his historic vineyard, where cabernet sauvignon (75 percent), merlot (22 percent) and franc are rooted in shale soils 15 miles from the Pacific and 2,000 feet above it, the vine selections tracing their lineage directly back to 19th-century Bordeaux. The 2016 is compressed as a young wine, needing four days after the bottle is first opened to fully show itself, when it will turn your head with its lovely weight of sumptuous fruit. Give it a decade or more in the cellar to get the most out of the bottle. $95.'
