Wine Review: This ruby colored Cab opens with a fragrant pomegranate and red currant bouquet with a hint of peppermint. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, slightly creamy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty plum and ripe red currant blend with hints of black cherry and cinnamon. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are food friendly. This Cab would be a very nice pairing with homemade shepherd's pie. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2006 Elodian Cabernet Sauvignon is infused with aromas and flavors of black cherry and plum that elegantly commingle with subtle clove and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is rich and full with sturdy but velvety tannin. The acid is lean and balanced making this a great, food friendly wine, perfectly paired with a big juicy steak or pasta with marinara. A large dollop oak adds a layer of vanilla and toast making the wine vibrant and complex. This wine is ready to drink now but with great potential to age for decades to come.
