Obelisco Estate 2011 Red Mountain Malbec
Red Mountain, Washington , Washington ABV: 14.2%
WE - 88
This deep, dark red-purple was aged for 19 months in American oak, 22% which was new. It has very pure aromas of black cherry and dried basil shining through, with undertones of cocoa powder, clove, vanilla and cola. On the palate the wine is medium to full bodied, slightly sweet with dried herb notes, dark cherry, pie cherry fruit, slight vanilla toast with a slightly tart mid-palate and a long, soft finish. Its a pleasure to smell and drink. Cellaring: This wine is drinking well now. Malbec is better known for its great softness and fruit, and Red Mountain fruit is known for its longer aged wines, were guessing this wine should improve over the next 5 years.
Obelisco Estate is located on the pretigious Red Mountain with 30 acres planted to Cabernet, Malbec and Merlot. Owner/Winemaker Doug Long's first winery was David Arthur in Napa Valley, named 'Winery of the Decade' in 2000. Obelisco's other winemakers are Pete Hedges and Sara Goedhart.
SUGGESTED PARINGS: Tagliatelle with Mushrooms and Sausage, Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
