Edgewood Estates 2007 Tradition – Napa Valley, CA

From the label: ‘At Edgewood the name ‘Tradition’ has real significance. It pays respect to Bordeaux, home to three varieties used in this proprietary. It represents stability and honor. Our 2007 Tradition includes Cabernet Savignon, Petite Verdot, and Malbec. It is a significant wine of texture and breed. Three to five years should make a great thing better, and that many more may show this one at its best. Less than 2500 cases crafted.’

Price: $14.99

I was lead to this wine by a Total Wine specialist at my local store. He said that this was an exceptional wine and also the last bottle that they had of this vintage and that there would be no more. Of course, I had to try it. I was really glad I did.

This wine had a dark plum/purple color and had a bouquet of tobacco, blackberries, and plums. It was smoky as well. It was a medium-bodied wine with a long and strong finish. It is a hearty, strong wine and very robust.

The label said to drink this wine at 3 to 5 years old. I drank it at 4 years at the height of it’s maturity.

Overall I really liked this wine. It was a nice wine that really mellowed out with aeration. I gave this wine a rating of 91 points which puts it on my lists of top red wines. I would love to have a few more of these bottles in my collection.
