Wine Review: This dark plum colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Tom Eddy opens with a mild oak and gentle black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, rather smooth and very approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black currant with notes of oak. We also detected hints of blueberry and blackberry mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty oak tannins are well managed and nicely prolonged. I would pair this nice Cab with a thick ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Elodian Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect representation of Napa Valley mountain Cab. The aroma is invitingly complex with spice, leather and very subtle hints of lavender. Pervasive aromas of dark fruit also preside heavily on the palate with abundant blackberry and cherry flavors. Delving further into the wine's complex nature, other traditional Cabernet flavors and aromas open up as anise commingles with understated vanilla derived from the new French, American and Hungarian oak barrels the wine was aged in. What truly separates this wine and makes it a classic is its sturdy structure and velvety, mouth-filling tannin. Great acidity brings the necessary balance to go great with food and for superb age ability. Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years and watch it evolve!

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
