($75) Dark purple. Smoky blackcurrant and candied plum on the nose, with dusty minerals adding focus. Juicy and concentrated, with powerful dark fruit flavors, velvety texture and building spiciness. Offers impressive vivacity for a wine with such depth, finishing brisk and clean.

The dense purple-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa reveals layered, full-bodied flavors of lead pencil shavings and black fruits along with refreshing acidity. This amply-styled wine will be impressive young, and last for 10-15 years.

Great intensity, focus and harmony of flavors, with richly layered currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit that is vivid and sharply defined. Finishes with bold, plush tannins.

Relatively uninteresting, probably too young. Massive over-oaky, over-ripe cabernet fruit in a forward style that bores me.

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.
