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.

The 2017 Obsidian Ridge Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon offers a pleasing and rewarding drinking experience. This wine offers excellent aromas and flavors of black fruit, graphite, and oak. Enjoy it with grilled beef. (Tasted: March 31, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
Your nose is teased with coffee nibs, blueberries, and black pepper, but a shy side emerges after time in the glass: blackberries and a gentle floral lift. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, and fresh blackberry are carried on silky tannins—they speak clearly, but don’t shout. 2017 is a riper, fuller, but quieter vintage of our signature bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec
