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
Opaque purple. Expansive, flamboyantly perfumed bouquet of black cherry, raspberry, cassis and whiffs of incense and licorice. Then sweet, creamy and suave on the palate, offering sappy dark berry preserve and floral flavors that are utterly seamless. Extremely long and gently tannic on the finish, leaving behind sweet berry and floral pastille notes. This wonderfully vibrant, deep, elegant wine will be even better with another five years or so of bottle age but Irsquo;d have no trouble knocking one off now, all by myself.
Good medium ruby. Sappy aromas of blackberry, black cherry and mocha. Fat, silky and full; here the wine’s firm edge of acidity is nicely buffered by dense fruit. Conveys an impression of sweetness without heaviness. Finishes with lush, fine-grained, slowly mounting tannins and excellent persistence.
This pushes ripeness to the edge, yet it’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.
An ultrarich Cabernet whose ripe fruit is as elaborate as you can get. Ditto for the soft, plush tannins and the wealth of fine, sweet oak. Despite the wealth of blackberry, currant, dark chocolate and cola flavors, itrsquo;s not a wine to drink now, because the tannins and acids are so pert. Give it a good six years in the cellar.
From the amazing Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard, Hobbsrsquo; 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a slightly more opulent, broader, savory effort that comes close to the perfect 2002. The 2007 has more noticeable tannin than the 2002 did at the same stage as well as more obvious minerality, but notes of graphite, black currant liqueur, licorice, cedar, and spice box are found in this full-bodied, multidimensional, fabulously concentrated wine. It was aged in 100% new Taransaud French oak barrels. Give it 5ndash;6 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following three decades.
The deep ruby/purple-colored 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard offers a sweet, classic creme de cassis-scented nose with loamy, earthy notes in the background. Layered with an opulent texture, the sometimes ferocious tannins from Stagecoach Vineyard fruit have been beautifully tamed and civilized. This full-bodied, loaded Cabernet Sauvignon is just approaching early adolescence, and should drink well for another 10–15+ years.
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 7ndash;10 years.
