Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Red Hills Lake County Obsidian Ridge Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

In 2004 we managed the tannins with gentle maceration techniques, favoring punchdowns to pumpovers. The result is a fleshy wine with fullness and weight but not the aggressive tannins of the prior vintage. The aromas are quintessentially Cabernet, with cassis, cedar and an apparent minerality. Finally, it is the spicy contribution of the barrels, with notable toast, clove and pipe tobacco flavors, that helps make the 2004 vintage so compelling.

Obsidian Vineyard nestles in the coastal hills of the Onetangi viticultural area on the northern coast of Waiheke Island. The flagship wine, simply labeled The Obsidian, is the blend of the very best Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The Weeping Sands label is made with the same meticulous care and attention as Obsidian, but for earlier drinking. All wines are from the single Waiheke Island vineyard except the Obsidian, Chardonnay which is sourced from a small family vineyard block on Waiheke Island overlooking the Tamaki Straight. The Obsidian vineyard was established in 1993 with the specific objective of producing a great Bordeaux-style red however since that time new varieties have been introduced and Obsidian now has eight varietal wines. New wines to its portfolio include Syrah, Viognier, Chardonnay, Rose and Montepulciano. Read less

I tried this wine recently with a vegetarian meal even though it was suggested to go with beef. It is awesome and has a robust flavor with a mellow finish.
