Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
|Region||California, North Coast, Lake County|
This is tight, structured, full-bodied and concentrated, yet also sleek and focused, with lovely blackberry, dried currant and hints of sage and spice, ending with chewy tannins. Drink now through 2013.
This is the best Obsidian Cab since the 2002, and for similar reasons. It was a good vintage for Cabernet. The wine is rich and peppery and lush in black currant flavors, with beautifully sculpted, ripe tannins. Provides more evidence that this Red Hills of Lake County appellation has enormous potential for Cabernet.
