Elevation Cabernet Trio
The Obsidian Ridge estate is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon across three climactic zones ranging from 2,300 to 2,640 feet. In the 2017 vintage, we bottled single barrels sourced from each Elevation Zone to showcase the unique personality of each. The resulting Elevation Series Cabernet Sauvignon Trio is as fascinating as it is delicious for any lover of mountain-grown cabernet. Presented in a beautiful gift box, price includes shipping within the continental USA.
The uppermost portion sits above the inversion layer on the steepest, rockiest slope, ten degrees warmer on average than the lowest elevation of the vineyard. As a result, vines above 2,500’ budand ripen a month earlier and produce powerful, ripe flavors.
The lower third of the vineyard has the gentlest slope and the coolest temperatures, yielding wines that are the most aromatic and nuanced.
The central portion of the vineyard is the most protected site, affording vines the longest hang time and yielding beautiful balance.
