2007 Feudo Arancio Cabernet Sauvignon Sicily, 13.5%

BEST VALUE: A bit candied on the nose with notes of chocolate-covered cherries and Swedish fish with a slight, woodsy/forest floor undertone. Very soft on entry with a nice core of slightly bitter black olive-framed cherry fruit. The tannins are modest but a touch stiff, which gives this good volume in the mouth. The fruit of the mid-palate is moderately rich and well-balanced with a very clean, slightly austere finish that retains both the forest floor and light chocolate element of the nose. Simple with a touch of rustic character, and easy to drink and pair with food. Not a wow wine but it grows on you. 86pts

    I love the Château Edmus Saint-Émilion Grand Cru! Just tried it a few months ago and gave it two #WKBadges:

    It's 85% Merlot and 15% Cab Franc and now Cab Sauv, however.
