Norm’s Tasting Notes: 2017 Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
The North Georgia Wine Advisor
2017 Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
We had a great steak dinner the other night featuring a two inch thick New York Strip from our local meat market (The best in the Southeast), and a bottle of Obsidian Cab, given to us by a friend, so yes, its another “Cab and a Slab” story. When you have good friends, a good butcher shop, a good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, and of course an excellent Grill Chef (me). how can you go wrong?
The color is red-black, yes, that’s very dark red. The aroma is like a basket of hot, freshly picked berries, and the flavors support that notion, with a thick, jammy. taste of blackberry and dark cherry. leading to a lingering finish which begs for another sip! The alcohol content is 14.6%, and Norm’s score is 91.
A bottle of Obsidian Cab would compliment almost any grilled meat.
