2005 Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Paul Hobbs
From its dense, saturated ruby hue to its earthy, cigar box nose, this Cabernet Sauvignon commands attention and suggests a cellar-worthy wine. More than evident on the palate right now is the great intensity, depth and structure it possesses. Pure, focused flavors of black cherry, currant and tobacco coat the mouth, while notes of forest floor and pencil shavings add further dimension and nuance. A lingering finish offers balanced acidity and firm, chewy tannins.
Wine & SpiritsPure, rich and concentrated, this is flamboyant, offering depth, range of flavor, structure and depth. The currant and toasty oak flavors are intense and focused without being overdone.
