91+ Our Score (1/2020) Vin Chicago alum Alex Beloz has done it again! His 2017 release from the mountainside Obsidian Ridge Vineyard is ripe and full, with a boisterous bouquet and forward flavors of blackberry, black currant, blueberry, grilled red plum, graphite and cocoa nib along with overtones from the Hungarian oak that is a signature of the winery. The aromas are powerful from the moment the cork is popped, and the flavors begin popping after just a few minutes of aeration. This Cabernet is a blast to drink now, and the powerful fruit and fine tannins point to it being even better in a few years. It will age with aplomb for a decade or more. Located at high elevation in the Mayacamas Mountains, the Obsidian Ridge Vineyard is an exceptional piece of land, and the wines just keep getting better every year. If this was from Napa, it could easily be twice the price.

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue. We are 200 feet to the west of Ulta Cosmetics and around 200 yards southeast of the Hollywood Palms Cinema. The layout of the center is a bit confusing so just give us a call if you need directions.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
