The background fruitiness makes this cabernet sauvignon taste wonderful. It is "snoothe" on the palate and I enjoy that little edge of hardiness that is in perfect balance with its background flavors.
External Reviews for Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Beckstoffer
The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (2,980 cases) possesses big, sweet, smoky oak, cedary, blackberry, and cassis aromas as well as flavors offered in a rich, voluptuous, full-bodied style. While it is already deliciously drinkable (surprising for a 2001), there is abundant tannin lurking underneath the surface, but it is well-concealed by a wealth of fruit. This selection comes from four sources, the Crane, To-Kalon, Hyde, and Stagecoach vineyards. Drink it over the next 10-15 years, although it may last even longer. Drink 2003-2018.
It is obvious Paul Hobbs prefers the influence of Taransaud cooperage on his Bordeaux varietals because they tend to give the wines a chocolatey character, and that is seen in the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (3,120 cases), a Cabernet Sauvignon with terrific concentration, remarkable opulence, and layers of cassis- and licorice-infused tobacco leaf notes that just cascade over the palate with an unctuous texture. The wealth of fruit and concentration hides some relatively serious tannin in this large-scaled wine. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.
Well-crafted, with excellent balance and a sense of elegance and finesse, it offers aromas of ripe cherry, currant, plum and berry, with pretty toasty oak shadings and a smooth, supple texture and fine grained tannins that make it approachable. Best from 2005 through 2012.
Well-structured, with a complex array of herb, olive, currant and coffee flavors that are complex and concentrated, finishing with tannins and an earthy, new leather shoe character. Best from 2004 through 2011.
Red-ruby. Bitter cherry, blackberry, creosote and oak spices on the nose. Supple, fruit-driven wine offers tangy flavors of cassis, blackberry and flowers, and good texture. The wine's tannins build with aeration, and the finish turned increasingly oaky.
Hobbs is inspired by traditional French winemaking techniques, focusing on single-vineyard wines, natural years, and barrel fermentation with aging on the lees. His wines are Burgundian in style; deliciously complex and elegant wine a range of fruit, nut and spice flavors.
The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa manifests attractive sweetness and plumpness, a soft underbelly, and a voluptuous, cassis-scented nose as well as flavors. Enjoy it over the next 7-10 years. (Rele...

We have been releasing a vineyard designate wine made from select blocks of this intriguing, high elevation vineyard for four vintages now. The Cabernet Sauvignon we produce from it has a wonderful sinewy texture and a distinct balance of ripe, focused, high-toned fruit and acidity that create a gorgeously structured wine. The 2004 displays a deep blackish crimson color accompanied by aromas of cassis, lavender and underbrush. The palate boasts excellent fruit purity; layers of blackberry, currant and red licorice intermix with earthy tones of espresso and fresh tobacco. Tannins are chewy and the finish long and slightly smoky. Alcohol 14.7%
