Located in the Santa Cruz mountains, Mount Eden launched in 1972. My first visit to Mount Eden was in the mid 2000's, and I remember my initial shock at how utterly poignant and crisp the Cabs were.
I most recently visited this winery in 2013, and found they had carried on their tradition of providing an exceptional cab at a very reasonable price point.
These Cabs age well - buy and store.
Very complex and nuanced structure, with solid depth and just enough fruit.
Just barely makes the $50 price tag - you may need to shop around.
