Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The beautiful 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Paul Hobbs' multiple sources. It exhibits a vibrant, young, blue/black color as well as a stunning nose of Asian plum sauce, black currants, blueberries and a touch of forest floor. Rich, opulent and full-bodied, it is meant for early drinking, but at age ten, it is showing no signs of premature aging. The pleasure police may accuse this wine of being a fruit bomb, but, boy, is it gorgeous, rich and satisfying on both a hedonistic and intellectual level! There is a lot going on here, and by Napa Valley standards, it is reasonably priced. Drink it over the next decade.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Sleek, polished and concentrated, with vivid black cherry and blackberry fruit, turning savory and smoky and gracefully unfolding to reveal extra facets of nutmeg, mineral and sage before ending with a firm, tannic backbone. 3,623 cases made.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
