Cabernet Sauvignon, Obsidian Ridge '16, North Coast, Lake County, California$49.00
Obsidian Ridge Vineyard is planted at 2,640 feet atop the Mayacamas range north of the Napa Valley. This is one of the newest American Viticultural Areas, named Red Hills Lake County for the distinctive volcanic soils that define this remarkable mountain appellation. Winery note: "True Cabernet Sauvignon character stands out, opening in an aromatic riot of blackberry jam, a touch of herb, spice, and coffee. The wine is full-bodied, expanding mid-palate with a dense core of black fruit, black cherries, and cacao beans; the finish lingers with a perfume of dried raspberries and rose water. The distinctive tannic structure of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot hints at the aging potential of this wine."
94 points Wine Enthusiast
A deep, dark color and generous black-fruit aromas lead to well extracted flavors of blackberry, blueberry and black currant on the palate, while a thick blanket of fine grained tannins wraps it all in. It is huge in structure but matched by luxurious, layered fruit and spice flavors. *Cellar Selection* (JG)
