ARKENSTONE PROPRIETARY RED "OBSIDIAN", HOWELL MOUNTAIN NAPA VALLEY 2012

Wine Advocate
97 Point
s

The two blockbusters are proprietary reds, although certainly dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2012 Obsidian Proprietary Red is a 580-case blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot. A complex nose of spring flowers, white chocolate, black cherry and cassis as well as touches of blackberry and espresso is followed by a multi-layered wine with stunning concentration, seductive and sexy notes of low acidity, plenty of glycerin and sweet tannin. This is a full-bodied beauty that was aged 22 months in 100% French oak. The alcohol is a moderately high 14.8%. Anticipated maturity: now-2032. eRobertParker.com # , #222 (Dec 2015) Drink 2016 - 2032
