The late Doug Long helped his parents and brothers make history in the Napa Valley with David Arthur Vineyards prior to investing in vineyards on Red Mountain in 2004. This bottle showcases his collaboration with Red Mountain winemaker Pete Hedges. It opens up with aromas of blackberry, dark cherry, eucalyptus and peach tea, with a bit of an earthy element reminiscent of raspberry bramble. The palate delivers a lush, full, juicy dose of cassis and blackberry, while tannins work in the background and a bit of white pepper settles in the lovely finish. Obelisco Estate’s flagship wine was awarded a double gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
