Hall of Fame Value


This is an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon that has consistently over-delivered for the price since its beginning 20 some years ago. Estate vineyard in Lake County’s Red Hills District. High (half mile) elevation, volcanic soils (thus the name Obsidian Ridge). Deep core of blackberry, black currant and black cherry. The 2015 vintage has a more savory and earthy edge to it, which I like. Notes of bittersweet chocolate, cigar box and a musk/mineral/truffle quality that makes it an ideal dinner companion. It’s difficult for 10,000 case production wines to have soul. This has it.
