WINE REVIEW: Edna Valley Vineyard, U.S.A. Central Coast - Cabernet Sauvignon 2017


REVIEW: Edna Valley Vineyard, U.S.A. Central Coast - Cabernet Sauvignon 2017


A clean, deep ruby colour with extensive legs. On the nose, this is all of those black cherries, blackcurrant jam, clove, white pepper and mint leaf all bunched up into one smell sensation. The aroma intensity is a medium+ and it is a developing wine, there is definitely some vanilla notes coming through.


On the palate, you have high acidity, high tannins, full body and medium (pushing close to high) alcohol content which is synonymous with Central Coast and the Cab Save grape.


From the palate you grab the aromas above but with some more herbaceous characteristics - mint, even eucalyptic type scents with a finish that is pushing medium+ to the limit.


This is a good version and certainly can be aged further too.


Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyard: Edna Valley is based on the Californian Coast, a few miles from Pismo Beach in San Luis Obispo.

Food Pairing: The obvious choice is steak, but for something different reference beef short ribs or bbq grilled lamb...for the non-meat dishes, portabello mushroom or a nice chunk of hard, crystal-esque aged cheese!

Cheese Recommendation: Quickes Extra Mature Cheddar


Avg Price: £15-16 a bottle.


TDWG Overall Rating: 89/100
