Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Tom Eddy opens with mild black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of oak and black currant and a hint of blueberry. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and moderate tannins fade away nicely. This Cab would pair well with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Because of the diverse terroirs from which it comes, the wine is highly nuanced with many distinct flavors and aromas. Layers of dark fruit permeate the nose as subtle background notes of vanilla, spice and cedar bring an alluring complexity to the wine. On the palate, the wine is rich yet elegant with an enticingly bold structure and supple tannins. The finish is clean and lingering with lean acidity that makes this a great wine to pair with food. The Petit Verdot adds floral delicacy to the aromas; while the Malbec enriches the "meaty" proportion in the wine. Overall the Cab Sauvignon continues to build structure and together, the three varietals merely add up to lots and lots of complexity. Enjoy!
