Paul Hobbs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

SKU 904


Aromas of blackcurrant and tobacco reveal themselves as this deep black garnet offering opens up in the glass. A dense, viscous palate coats the mouth with boysenberry, roasted coffee and a hint of vanilla. Chewy tannins and notes of black pepper mark the finish of a cellar-worthy offering.

Wine SpectatorGreat intensity, focus and harmony of flavors, with richly layered currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit that is vivid and sharply defined. Finishes with bold, plush tannins.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa offers beautiful black currant fruit interwoven with notions of licorice, cedar, and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied, opulent, and fleshy, it should drink nicely for 12-15+ years.

Robert Parker, December 2007
