2010 III Nefer 3L

Winemakers: Doug Long, Sarah Goedhart, Pete Hedges

AVA: Red Mountain

Special Bottling:Limited production wine produced during select years.

Blend:100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Obelisco Estate Vineyard

Case Production: 92 cases (750ml)

Alcohol: approx 13.4% vol.

Barrels: 100% French Oak, 22 months in the barrel

Tasting Notes:Deep purple red to almost black color. The aromatics of this wine are reflected in the color with ripe, dark blackberry and plum fruit aromas. Underlying it all is black cherry cola with a sweet with a buttery leather streak. On the palate this wine is full-bodied and slightly sweet with ripe plum, cherry cola and hints of sweet toasted oak. The mouth-feel is fat on the entry, lush in the mid-palate with a hint of tartness before a long slightly tannic finish. This is big, concentrated Cabernet at its best.

Cellaring:Because of the way this wine is made combined with the fact it is 100% Red Mountain Cab, it should age well for the next 10 to 15 years. Despite its bigger tannin profile, it is still a joy to drink now.

Production:The fruit for this wine is from the Obelisco Vineyard. The high density planting yields smaller berries, which contribute to the concentrated flavors. Combine this with 22 months in oak which is 100% French and you get a wine that is powerful yet balanced, seamlessly combining great fruit and oak.

Harvest: 2010 was a very unique year.  It was a year that due to cooler temperatures, the grapes took a longer time to mature.  The flavors of the grapes developed before the sugars.  Despite being cooler, the temperatures were incredibly consistent producing the most uniformly colored grape clusters Obelisco has ever seen.  Harvest occurred in the 3rd and 4th week of October with Brix averaging 26.5.
