Wine Review: This midnight blue colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Tom Eddy is very good. It opens with mild boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, very approachable, elegant and fresh. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused black currant with notes of mild plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. The Cab is very food friendly and it would pair well with a thick cut prime rib. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2010 Elodian Cabernet Sauvignon is a cab-lovers dreams. Classic aromas of black cherry, anise and subtle vanilla bean erupt from the glass as a harbinger of the nuanced flavors that permeate the palate. Complex and overlapping flavors of dried cranberry, dark fruit, subtle spice and vanilla are accentuated by the wine’s velvety yet sturdy structure. Our signature lean acidity leaves a clean and crisp finish which lingers with mouth-watering intensity. The bold acidity and robust structure will allow this wine to age for many years to come, so enjoy now or lay this offering down for several years and watch it evolve.
