While the Estate is a singular voice, the Domaine is a chorus. Complex, given the five varieties in the cepage, this Cabernet has aromas of briary currant, sage, mint and sweet oak. Less tannins and acidity on the palate than is evident in the Estate, there is an earlier window of enjoyable drinking.

Wine EnthusiastThis bottling includes 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Sharp blackberry, smoky cedar and slightly green tomato-leaf aromas give way to a medium-bodied palate that's complex, with flavors of crushed oregano, dill, thyme and marjoram, all surrounding a smoky, juicy blackberry core.

Wine AdvocateA terrific value, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Domaine Eden has a distinctly Bordeaux-like personality in its blackcurrants, shaved pencil lead, tobacco leaf and wet stone-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, supple, elegant and balanced, it's not a heavy weight but excels on its balance, freshness and purity. Made from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec that was raised 22 months in French and American oak, drink it anytime over the coming 6-8 years.
