It offers up complex aromas of tobacco leaf, damp earth, blackberries and black currants, full-bodied power and more density, depth and structure than the Cross Barn. Already drinkable, it should age effortlessly for two decades. Drink 2010-2030."
One of California’s most renowned international wine consultants (he consults with 14 bodegas in Argentina, 3 wineries in Chile and also an estate in Armenia), Paul Hobbs is also a well-known consultant in California with his best-known clients being Merus, Stewart Cellars, Clos Pegase and Constant. The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignons all look sensational. As a group, they come close to rivaling the brilliant success Paul Hobbs enjoyed in 2007." Dec 2010
Winery: "Our 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet derives substantial depth and breadth of character from the diverse terroir represented by these four hallmark vineyards. Concentrated aromas of black currant, mocha and tobacco leaves reveal themselves as this deep crimson wine opens in the glass. A dense, viscous palate coats the mouth with boysenberry, red currant, clove and cassis. Velvety tannins weave together with layers of vanillin, baker’s cocoa, anise and cedar to create a lengthy, expressive finish."
