($60) Deep ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, currant, licorice and graphite. Juicy and hard-edged, with somewhat intrusive acids and hints of mint and herbs. Finishes with firm, oak-driven tannins and a strong torrefaction note of bitter chocolate.

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has hit its plateau of maturity where it should rest for another decade. Sweet, juicy, sexy black and red currant fruit intertwined with licorice, earth and subtle oak aromas jump from the glass of this dense plum/purple-colored wine. Attractive, round, fleshy and voluptuously textured, this fully mature, loaded 2001 can be drunk now and over the next ten years.

Site Blog: The Wine Forum This wine started a bit jumbled, with spiky alcohol, meddled fruit and a tight and tannic finish. After about an hour and a half the wine opened nicely and revealed great balance, depth and concentration. Nose: Blackberry, cherry, plum, a tad of pencil lead, and finally some sweet oak highlight the aromas. A spicy cedar and clove note accents the finish. Palate: A bit jumbled at first, the wine came together well after an hour and a half open. Blackberry, cherry, spicy plum, full and expansive flavors fan out over the palate, seducing the taster to come back for more. The tannins are fine from aging, but are resilient and firm on the finish, framing this great wine's palate experience. Drink over the next 3 years.

Dark purple in color. Tobacco and cedar on the nose. The wine is a delicious blend of blackberry fruit and mocha flavors on the palate. I have had this wine for over the past five years and believe that it has reached it's peak and will continue to drink well for another 5+ year.

About This Producer

When Paul Hobbs founded his eponymous winery in 1991, he set out to produce small lot, hand-crafted, vineyard designate wines. He began with just three - one Chardonnay, one Pinot Noir and one Cabernet Sauvignon.

Over the years, the small family of wines has grown to over a dozen as numerous new and historic vineyards have captured Hobbs' attention since that first vintage. The current wines are the result of years of perseverance, patience and experimentation in Hobbs' continuing adventure with wine. It is his great hope that the fruit-driven, complex wines he makes with his dedicated team will continue to appeal to many people around the globe.
