Rating: ***+ $$$$$ Arkenstone Vineyards Obsidian Blend, Howell Mountain, Napa, CA, 2007 - Wine Review

Find prices and retail availability for Arkenstone Obsidian.

Initial review, by way of background: This is Arkenstone Vineyards Obsidian Blend, Howell Mountain, Napa, CA, 2007.

In the glass: Deep magenta.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this Napa blend shows sweet furry fruit, with an almost peppermint candy sweetness.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are the balanced and furry finish.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for its fun and classic style.
