Searching for prime, undiscovered vineyard land in the late 1990s, the Molnar family found the place that would become Obsidian Ridge Vineyard on the back side of the Mayacamas Range. To Nicholas Molnar, it felt similar to finding Poseidon's Vineyard in the southernmost section of Carneros nearly 30 years earlier, an area untested with vines, but which he believed to have great potential. Geographically, Obsidian Ridge was perfect for Cabernet at 2,640 feet, and the site was covered with black, glassy Obsidian rock. They planted 105 acres of Bordeaux clones (including a little Rhône-based Syrah) on a piece of land that was formerly an abandoned walnut orchard. About the same time, other pioneer growers moved in, and now the area has been named Red Hills Lake County, one of the North Coast's newest appellations, and is establishing itself as a premier Cabernet growing region.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is also a winner, slightly more open and precocious, but with plenty of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, striking minerality (no doubt from the Obsidian rocks) and a full-bodied, luscious, juicy style with a voluptuous texture. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
