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.

This ageworthy Cabernet is extremely deep and concentrated, but holding everything rather tightly at this young age. Aromas of tamarind and tobacco lead to dense flavors of blueberry, black cherry and dark chocolate that expand on the palate beautifully. It was aged in Hungarian barrels, 45% new. Best from 2025– 2035.

Exuberant plum sauce and warm cherry puree flavors hold the upper hand throughout, while melted licorice and dark pudding notes fill in behind. A singed mesquite element comes in on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 25,352 cases made.
