Wine Review: This wine was the best Cab that we tried in a tasting of wines from Beckstoffer owned vineyards. This opaque dark ruby colored wine opens with a mild spicy blackberry fruit bouquet with hints of menthol and cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, extremely well balanced, silky, and elegant. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry and blackberry. The finish is dry and sails on for quite some time. This wine is the best Paul Hobbs wine I have had in a while and the panel agreed. We would all love another bottle with a big juicy filet mignon. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2005 exhibits a deep black-crimson color and inviting aromas of boysenberry, black cherry and dried herbs. Despite significant tannic structure, the palate is already showing generous, concentrated flavors of perfectly ripened black and red fruits interlaced with graphite, freshly baked bread and white pepper. The intense fruit and spice elements persist through a memorable finish, complemented by firm tannins and a touch of acidity
