Paul Hobbs has turned this little winery into a real gem. This release was sourced from three top Napa Valley vineyards (45% Stagecoach, 29% Beckstoffer IV and 26% State Lane).
This wine is firm, dense and powerful, yet very elegant! The wines aromas jump out of the glass for this well-textured Cabernet! The nose opens to blackberry, black cherry and subtle vanilla aromas from very high quality French oak barrels. In the mouth the wine starts fat, fleshy and dense with French oak well integrated into the ripe grapiness. Flavors of blackberries, chocolate, coffee and hints of dark caramel are layered until the end of the long finish. The black fruit and barrel spice are balanced with proper hints of varietal sauvignon herbs. Tannins are very fine, firm but not gripping, enveloped in the fat, dense mouthfeel and only needing time to soften.
