Stone and mineral influence is apparent in this wine. Brambly in both scent and texture, this wine is rich in dark fruits. Specifically, blackberry and plum. Firm structure and grip with subtle oak influence. From deep alluvial soils in Lake County, this powerful Cabernet Sauvignon is inky purple in the glass and exhibits dark briary notes on the nose. The palate is awash with firm tannins and balanced acidity. Dark fruit with a touch of minerality complements some clove and spice. - See more at: http://citywineryblog.com/city-winery-kosher-cabernet-sauvignon-obsidian-ridge-2009/#sthash.80BM2qAJ.dpuf

Notes on the Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML 2009

Tasting Notes Intense aromas of wild blackberries, ripe red plums with hints of roasted coffee, cinnamon sugar cookies and clove. The palate offers flavors of dried cherries, fresh blackberries and dark chocolate that are supported by dusty spices and bold tannins.

Wine Maker Notes Planted high on the ridge separating Alexander Valley and Clear Lake, Obsidian Ridge Vineyard is a 105-acre vineyard set on a northwest facing parcel of 5 to 20% slopes, ranging from 2,300 to 2,660 feet in elevation. The site benefits from cool evenings due to good air drainage, high elevation, and breezes off the Mayacamas Range - See more at: http://citywineryblog.com/city-winery-kosher-cabernet-sauvignon-obsidian-ridge-2009/#sthash.80BM2qAJ.dpuf

Technical Notes (94% Cabernet Sauvignon/3% Cabernet Franc/3% Petit Verdot). A blend of six blocks from the Obsidian Ridge Vineyard planted at 2,200-2,640 feet on a combination of low angle and steep slopes. The wine aged for 18 months in Kadar Hungarian oak (50% new).

Additional Notes History — Searching for prime, undiscovered vineyard land in the late 1990s, the Molnar family found the land that would become Obsidian Ridge Vineyard in the not-yet-formed Red Hills appellation high on the back side of the Mayacamas Range.To Nicholas Molnar, patriarch of the Molnar family, it felt similar to finding Poseidon’s Vineyard in the southernmost section of Carneros nearly 30 years earlier — an area untested but with great potential. Geographically, however, Obsidian Ridge was the exact opposite of Poseidon’s Vineyard, whose seaside location is ideal for cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.At 2,640 feet, the site is covered with black, glassy Obsidian rock — surely Cabernet country. So, we planted 105 acres of Bordeaux clones (including a little Rhône-based Syrah) on a piece of land that was formerly an abandoned walnut orchard. As the pictures can attest, there was quite a bit of obsidian rock to pull out. But you can’t beat the views. About the same time, other pioneer growers moved in, and now Red Hills Lake County, one of the North Coast’s newest appellations, is establishing itself as a premier Cabernet growing region. We’ve also gotten a bit of press ourselves. Come up and visit us sometime, won’t you?
