Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Paul Hobbs Winery

This stately cabernet sauvignon displays great depth and complexity from diverse terroirs, including fruit from our Nathan Coombs Estate and other pedigreed Napa Valley vineyards. Dark crimson in color, the nose is perfumed with luxuriant aromas of red currant, boysenberry, cedar box, and Herbes de Provence. The intensely layered palate excites with flavors of cassis, graphite, blueberries, and sage, woven seamlessly together with savory, velvety tannins. The finish is long and pure, a perfect harmony of richness and elegance.

Reviews

  • "95 points. Aromas of tar, blackberries, cloves and dark chocolate. Perfumed. Full and focused with a beautiful center palate and length. Mostly from Nathan Combs in Coombsville with some Yountville-sourced fruit. Best ever. Drink or hold.” (James Suckling)
  • "92 points. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with fresh, exuberant cassis and crushed blackberry notes plus hints of cigar box, dried Mediterranean herbs, violets and Marmite toast. Full-bodied and built like a brick house, with firm, grainy tannins and lively acid supporting the generous black berry and savory flavors, it finishes with great length and poise. It is drinking beautifully now but has the stuffing to cellar for 12+ years. 6,810 cases were made." (Wine Advocate)
