Edna Valley Cabernet Sauvignon San Luis Obispo County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Cabernet Sauvignon has a traditional old-world style that opens with leather, cocoa powder, anise and blackberry jam. Pleasant and smooth, the ripe fruit and earth influences carry across the mid-palate for an approachable wine. Balanced acidity and fine, firm tannins complete the profile. This easy-going wine complements almost any occasion, pairing well with a variety of foods ranging from pan-seared pork chops to rich, meaty steaks.

Just five miles from the Pacific Ocean, Edna Valley Vineyard has one of the longest and coolest growing seasons in California.

Just five miles from the Pacific Ocean, Edna Valley Vineyard has one of the longest and coolest growing seasons in California. Its location in one of the state's few east/west-oriented valleys allows nighttime coastal fog to move inland, cooling the grapes after a long day in the sunlight, so that they slowly mature while retaining sufficient acidity. The vineyard's unique site consists of layers of clay and volcanic rock over ancient ocean subsoil. We are a partnership between Paragon Vineyard Company, which is owned by the Niven family, and Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines. The Niven's planted Paragon, our estate vineyard, in the early 1970s and the Chalone Wine Group joined with the family to establish a partnership as Edna Valley Vineyard in 1980.Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines purchased the Chalone Wine Group in 2005.

Stir-fried beef. Alone, began with blueberry, chocolate, cigar box flavor and not much aroma. The rich food brought out ripe fruit flavors much more and a nice peppery dry finish and aftertaste. Surprisingly good Cabernet for this price. A dinner wine for spicy meat dishes.

The nose starts with dark cabernet sauvignon fruit but gives way to an alcoholic astringency. The flavor on the palate follows suit, with some enjoyable dark fruit but an unbalanced, alcoholic finish.

Bought this wine at Vons for 8.99 and it is a delicious surprise. I love it and think it is smooth. Pairing with cheese and crackers and a sirloing steak. Perfect and what a bargain!
