Paul Hobbs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
From its alluring deep garnet to its engaging aromas of wild blackberry, cocoa, and dried sage, the wine is endowed with refinement and definition by sourcing from first-rate sites within the region. A core of succulent dark plum and black currant envelope the palate with delineated accents of lavender, tobacco and crushed graphite that hold through the long finish across fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity. Lovely with aged goat milk cheese and jamón ibérico or classic beef bourguignon. Serve at 50°-55° F.
Intense aromas of blueberries and blackcurrants with black licorice. Full to medium body, dusty and horizontal tannins and a flavorful finish. Precise.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is just as delicious from bottle as it was from barrel. Deep, fleshy and super-expressive the 2016 has a lot to offer. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender, mint and spice notes all grace this alluring Napa Valley Cabernet from Paul Hobbs.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals bombastic blackberry pie and blueberry compote notes with underlying cassis, dried herbs and unsmoked cigars scents plus a waft of pencil shavings. Full-bodied and jam-packed with black fruits and earthy layers, it has a solid, grainy frame and a long finish with a lively herbal lift.
Solidly built, with a core of dark currant and blackberry paste flavors, carried by well-embedded structure and ending with graphite and anise notes on the finish. Drink now through 2026.
