Paul Hobbs Winery 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon - 92+pts

Paul Hobbs Winery 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) California - USA

Availability: BCLDB Signature stores
Cost: $100
Alcohol: 15%
Date Tasted: March 1st, 2012

Tasting Notes: A Cabernet Sauvignon with great concentration and refinement produced from fruit sourced from multiple AVAs in Napa Valley. 2% Petite Verdot added to the blend adds a touch of spice to the dense blackberry and cassis fruit flavours. Though concentrated and powerful, the wine is anything but over-done showing impressive restaint and beauty. To get any more focus from a Napa Cab you'd have to go to a single vineyard release. Aged in 74% new oak for 20 months resulting in a stunning wine with length and depth. Drinking well now but should develop further with patient cellaring. Drink now-2019.
