The 2011 Obsidian Ridge “Half Mile” consists mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot filling out the rest of the blend. The wine sees 34 months in new Hungarian oak and is a delight for those who love robust red wines. Opaque ruby in color, the wine shows blackberry puree, spearmint, bay leaf, fennel seed and sweet cigar box spices. It is full and dense with firm tannins. This wine will show very well with bottle age or decanting.
