SKU: 106157-2012-750-3A
  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    Bright ruby-red. Musky, smoke-accented aromas of dark berries, cherry skin and cola. Spicy and taut on entry, then fleshier and sweeter in the middle, offering spicy black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a jolt of pepperiness. Finishes bright and long, with very good focus and lingering spiciness.

    Features ripe, juicy red berry and raspberry fruit that's elegant and refined, with a mix of crushed rock, dried herb and savory floral scents. Good length.

  • 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.
