Tom Eddy Cabernet Sauvignon Elodian 2003

Member Review by Gold Medal Wine Club:

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. Tom Eddy’s 2003 Elodian Cabernet Sauvignon exudes a balanced, approachable style characteristic of the alluring Napa Valley Cabernets. A medal-winning wine at the California State Fair Wine Competition, this favorite “family wine” of the Eddys was awarded an outstanding 94 Points and a Gold Medal. This polished, delicately flavored Cabernet Sauvignon proceeded to delight judges at the Los Angeles International Wine Competition, taking home yet another Gold Medal. The Elodian Cabernet Sauvignon is among the softer and more refined wines blended for the Tom Eddy Cabernet program, with the smooth tannins complementing, never overpowering, the elegant plum, cassis and blackberry fruit flavors. Bright cherry, green olive, and complex French oak characters help develop an intricate, yet silky texture, making the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon a delightful addition to dinner. Try pairing Tom Eddy’s Elodian with savory roast beef dishes and red-sauced pastas for a tasty indulgent. Aged 25 months in oak. 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot. Enjoy now until 2013.

Success in handcrafting wines can only come from using the finest grapes and the best techniques in the artful hands of a skilled winemaker. There are no shortcuts. And when your name is on every bottle, every bottle is your baby. It’s no wonder that quality and attention to detail are our mantras, from the vineyard to the barrel right down to the hand-applied label on the bottle. Producing less than 1500 cases annually of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon, we strive for elegance, structure and balance to create wines that are approachable now but beg for cellaring. Aging our Cabs two years in French oak plus an additional year in the bottle we believe is an integral part of what makes beautiful wines that are classically balanced and delicious with food. Making wine has been, and always will be, our passion, our work and our play. But as we dedicate ourselves to quality in our wines, we are acutely cognizant that it’s also about the journey: relationships created, wines shared, concern for our community and the environment; sprinkled with lots of laughter. Our goal is a life well lived, with honesty, humility and integrity, all of which we hope translates into our wine. Read less
