The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate opens with aromas of pencil shavings, cigar wrappers, cedar and dried herbs with a core of black cherries and black currants plus touches of bitter chocolate, mint, dried earth and an undercurrent of spices. The palate is full-bodied, firm and gently chewy with just enough freshness on the finish.
Score: 91 points -- Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate, 2019
The Mayacamas Mountain Range defines the axis of great Cabernet Sauvignon: the finest fruit grows on the flanks and ridges of the North Coast's most distinct geological feature. At the farthest reaches of this range lies Obsidian Ridge, at 2,950 feet above sea level, with slopes of between 5 and 20 degrees. We planted our vineyard in 1999 amid red volcanic soils shot with black obsidian, and among abandoned walnut trees, overlooking a dormant volcano. Today, these Red Hills are proving to be the next great frontier in Cabernet Sauvignon. Nature shows our fruit no mercy. Raked by Pacific winds, blinded by mountain light, and subject to cold, rocky conditions, our grapes develop thick skins, dark color and intense flavors. Vines that struggle produce better wines. Far from the tranquil valley floor, mountain fruit develops tannic structure that is uniquely expressive of its harsh environment. Ample sunshine provides the perfect counterbalance.
