2010 Edge Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast California

The 2010 Edge Cabernet hails from the expansive all encompassing North Coast AVA which is huge and contains fruit being produced in areas that could also be considered Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma and Lake Counties. A great many wineries from this AVA do not present as consistent of an effort as this winery did with this vintage. This wine’s allure starts with a strong smell of dark red almost black fruit combined with an earthy fresh tobacco leaf aroma and a hint of sweet molasses. The flavors are blackberry, mocha and baking spices expressing themselves conservatively in this medium weight blend that has some Merlot and Syrah included adding a dimension of depth and personality to the package. Cabernet Sauvignon of this quality and price is getting harder and harder to find in California.

Rating: Very Good (87) | $20 | 13.8% ABV
