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

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.

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 2-3 years of cellaring, and should drink well over the next two decades or more.

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

Combines firm, ripe layers of black cherry, blackberry, spice and savory notes that are at points rustic and chewy, with touches of black licorice and mineral. Full-bodied and concentrated, ending with a thick, layered finish. Best from 2012 through 2022.

Rustic tannin as well as a hint of astringency are noticeable in the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard (planted on a hillside above the Oakville Crossroads, near the famed Dalla Valle and Backus vineyards). Full-bodied and powerful, this macho effort needs to calm down. Notes of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, smoke, and licorice are followed by a full-bodied, intense red. It should shed enough tannin to become well-balanced.

Good full ruby-red. currant, chocolate, soy sauce and a whiff of maple syrup on the nose. Fat, lush and sweet of a bit chunky. Solidly constructed cabernet that finishes with big, dusty tannins and a faint greenness.
