Paul Hobbs has a long and a strong relationship with the Beckstoffer family for their first-growth-quality vineyards. He also works with other sites as well from the cool Coombsville sector of Southern Napa Valley from which emerges the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs. A lot of minerality and wet rocks in addition to copious quantities of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, beautiful purity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannins and adequate acidity, make for a beautiful, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next two decades.

A cool and inline red with dark berry, mineral and porcini mushroom character. Full, dense and tight with great fruit and depth. Very long and intense. Drink or hold.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs Estate Vineyard is deep, dense and explosive. Here, too, the French oak is a bit pronounced, but otherwise this is a fine effort. Graphite, smoke, incense and licorice all burst from the glass. An energetic, tense and vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon, the Nathan Coombs is a fabulous wine, especially for readers who enjoy ample, structured Cabernets.
