Edge Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a deep, inky purple at the center with bright ruby along the edges. The nose is classic Napa Cabernet, with aromas of leather, cedar and anise with wonderful notes of ripe black fruit. The taste is wonderfully fruit forward with a rush of blackberry, cherry and plum that transitions nicely to some spice notes of cinnamon and mocha midpalate. The tannins are firm but well stuctured, an ideal foundation to the long, smooth and very dry finish.

Coming out of the bottle, this wine is clean with a nice dark purple black tone to it. The nose presents cherry, vanilla and oak with a touch of astringency, which has me a bit worried as the oak monster as Gary V puts it might be in the house. On the palate, there is a touch of ripe fruit up front with supple charred tannins with a somewhat empty mid palate that finishes smoothly. This is a steak / cheese wine for sure and I would see this pairing up with a Porterhouse or a New York Strip or some smoked cheddar perhaps. So, as for the verdict on this one, I am on the fence and can’t call it either way. This is a wine that will have appeal to many but I think lacks the pizazz and excitement that will elevate it past the wine by the glass section of the menu at your favorite restaurant. It has decent ROI, but your money could pick you up something so much better.

A great everyday Cab - deep black cherry with a hint of vanilla - tastes of chocolate and spice - long finish with deep silky tannins - very hard to find - stock up - for $20 it's worth it!!

Nice dark color. Nose: vanilla, oak, and cherry aromas. Medium bodies, smooth tannins, not much of a midpalate. Has a long, oak/vanilla finish. Notes of spice and chocolate. I decanted this wine which really opened it up. Would do well to age a few years.

Edge 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Great Values from the Napa Valley - "Edge makes only one wine--this purple-black boysenberry-inflicted Cab-from vineyards along Napa Valley's Silverado Trail;. A small portion of Merlot helps smooth out some of the Cabernet's aggressive tannins." - Food & Wine, Page 189, October 2008 "Aromas and flavors of blackberry, raspberry and floral notes; medium bodied; medium finish with a palate cleansing acidity. Can serve now but will hold for some time." - Sante Magazine, Holiday 2007 Issue #11.9 90/100- "The Edge Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from grapes grown near St. Helena and in the Oak Knoll district of the Napa Valley. Hard on the heels of the award winning 2004 the latest ’05 is showing equally well. More restrained in style but with appealing peppery, black fruit aromas with flecks of vanilla. On the palate it is silky with dusty, peppery, red fruit flavors and just a touch of vanilla. Solid Napa Cabernet at a reasonable price." - Gismondi on Wine, November 2007
