Edge Wines 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) California

Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $32.99
Alcohol: 14.4%
Date Tasted: January 1st, 2010

Tasting Notes: An excellent full-flavour and full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon (with a touch of Merlot blended in) from Napa Valley producer Edge Wines. You'll find youthful aromas of raspberry, cassis and plum with toasty oak notes on the nose of this American and French oaked wine (16 months).

On the palate this deep, deep ruby coloured wine offers youthful, intense fruit flavours of dark berries with smooth, fully integrated tannins. Pairs beautifully with beef tenderloin with peppercorn sauce and braised vegetables. (See New Year's Day Dinner Wine Pairing Challenge)

High acidity and tannins make it an excellent candidate for aging however, the wine is sealed with a synthetic cork which can sometimes affect aging negatively.
