K&L Notes

Obsidian Ridge Vineyard is planted at 2,640 feet atop the Mayacamas range, the north side of 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 on the 2015 estate grown vintage, "Dark aromas of ripe blackberries and black currants mulled with spicy cloves and anise rise from the glass, complemented by hints of cacao beans and dark chocolate nibs. On the palate, the wine is dense and full-bodied, with a core of black fruit compote and hints of licorice. This is a textured wine with medium tannins, finishing with a dusting of light oak tannin. While still youthful, this is quite the impressive rendition of our Estate offering."

    Don't shy away from this excellent Cabernet due to the newer AVA! This wine came to our attention a couple of vintages ago, and has consistently been one of our top recommendations every since. Each year the quality of the fruit and the unique soil profile together with the insightful wine-making, result in a Cabernet almost too good to be true at this price. Looking for excellent quality California Cabernet that won't break the bank? Give this wine a try, and I'm betting you'll quickly be back for more.
