Obsidian Ridge Vineyard is planted at 2,640′ atop the Mayacamas range just a hop sip and jump north of the Napa Valley. This is one of the newest American Viticultural Areas, named Red Hills Lake County for the distinctive volcanic soils that define this remarkable mountain appellation. The vineyard’s red soils are shot through with obsidian rock — this steep, sloping terroir of obsidian gravel is all that a winemaker could hope for. The unrestricted drainage and meager soil fertility produce wines with great tannic structure.

Winery Notes: “Half Mile is the darkest and richest wine we make from Obsidian Ridge Vineyard. The 2017 vintage is no exception; it is perhaps even darker and more brooding than usual. Shy and reserved when first opened, it should be decanted for best results. You’ll be rewarded with aromas of fresh blackberries, dried cherries, licorice and a gentle pine forest lift. Flavors of cocoa powder, espresso and blackberries fit neatly within the taut tannic structure that teeters on a balanced edge. The 2017 has an earthy element, and an endurance that may prove it to be the longest-lived vintage of Half Mile.”
