Wine Review: This very dark scarlett colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Tom Eddy opens with a menthol and black cherry like bouquet with hints of herbs. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a black currant and plum blend with notes of black pepper and a hint of black licorice. The finish is dry and its moderate supple tannins are friendly. The panel suggested pairing this very nice Cab with veal scallopini or blackened tuna. Enjoy – KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Tom Eddy Cabernet is rich and elegant, just what you would expect from our flagship Cab. The great conditions throughout the year helped to produce grapes that were concentrated in flavor but with balanced acidity and tannin. The wine is luscious with dark fruits permeating its core: blackberry, cherry, and currant are just a few of the rich fruit flavors that erupt on the palate but with underlying essence of anise, cedar, and classical herbaceous qualities. The wines complexity will delightfully overwhelm the senses. Just the right amount of oak is infused into the wine to round out the finish and add a kiss of vanilla to indulge one's hedonistic side. The wine can be enjoyed now but should age beautifully for another two decades.
