Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Beckstoffer 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

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%

Paul Hobbs Winery:
Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989.

Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989. No, he wanted to create his very own grapes, on his own land. This passion led to the creation of Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991. Focused in the Russian River Valley, each harvest is meticulously captured so as to extract the very best from each grape. This passion started with only three wines in the winery’s repertoire: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but the winery quickly grew to produce over a dozen wines. Today, Paul Hobbs still consults other wineries around the globe, including wineries in Chile, Argentina, and Hungary. Read less

Good body and aroma which you will enjoy to drink over good grilled beef.

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.

Inky ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry, cassis, black pepper and licorice. Broad, sweet and lush, with a strong spicy character to the juicy blackberry and spicecake flavors. As deep and fleshy as this is, it also delivers energetic cut. Very long on the finish, with silky, seamless tannins lending focus.

Notable for its richness, intensity, focus and persistence, this full-bodied red shows spicy currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit that's supple and layered, yet light on its feet, with gentle tannins. Drink now through 2016.

Very ripe yet well-proportioned, with rich, zesty black cherry and wild berry fruit thatandrsquo;s fleshy and opulent, turning elegant and refined. Best from 2008 through 2014.

This pushes ripeness to the edge, yet itandrsquo;s balanced, with spicy currant, cedary oak and hints of anise and cassis that are complex and deep without being heavy. The tannins are ripe and polished. Best from 2008 through 2015.

A cuvee needing some bottle age is the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard. This broodingly backward, deep ruby/purple-hued effort gives up scents of crushed rocks, smoky oak, blackberries, and cassis. Powerful and rich with exceptional concentration and structure, it requires 2andndash;3 years of cellaring, and should drink well over the next two decades or more.

Ruby-red. Bright red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by dusty rose and mineral notes. Sweet raspberry and cherry flavors are smooth in texture and supported by fine-grained tannins. The red fruit notes linger impressively on the precise finish.
