Edencrest Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

deep rich color, great fruit, solid tannins but not overpowering and will mellow with age. Enjoy now or lay it down for a few years for an even better experience. wine Enthusiast: 85 points; "a lot of distinguishing features here, from the blackberry-cherry fruit to the smooth complex tannins.

The vines are planted in obsidian laden soil that drains well and absorbs heat during the day and expends it at night, enhancing the ripening process. The soil is very pour and rocky. The vines must struggle mightily to produce the meager amount of grapes we grow. The vines eked out only a about a ton and a half of grapes per acre. Many winegrowers will try to maximize the quantity of grapes to harvest because they are selling them by the ton to other wineries. Since we are making the wine, we choose to maximize the quality. In these soils it's going to be tough to try to get even two tons per acre. (Most vineyards in the area are producing four or five tons per acre.) Read less

The nose is a little remniscent of licorice fighting some plums with sharpies in their hands, pretty good! The taste is more focused on the plum with a chalky component, and although it's 15.9% alcohol is there, the effects are not harsh at all... very solid and well-structured wine. This makes me excited to try the Proprietors Reserve all the more!

...and you're invited! This highly anticipated wine is HOT and HEAVY! The nose hits you with rye bread and anise, a little Sharpies and creamy wedding candies, and almost a Thanksgiving day pumpkin spice component! My mouth is watering, so I give it a whirl! The wine is dry, with an espresso and caramel mid-palette and a mouth coating fruity body. Plums, nectarines, blackberries in a cobbler, only drinkable and with 15.9% alcohol content. This wine is a one two punch of flavor!

In my dream I'm teaching a class of dried blueberries how to 'tag' with sharpie markers. At least that is what I remember of the dream. The smell is intense and as I continue to inhale, I realize that two of my students must be sharing their lunches - black licorice and Oreo cookies. I pick up my glass to cure my thirst and it's as if I have poured a packet of hot cocoa mix on my tongue - it's coated with a chocolate-y dryness and as I swallow over it, it tastes more like dirt than chocolate. In my panic to clear my mouth I can't find anything that I think will help, so I pick out a poor student and gobble him up. Dried blueberries are delicious. And then I wake up.
