2013 Paul Hobbs 'Nathan Coombs Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

Avg. Rating: 

From Hobbs' rocky estate vineyard in Coombsville, this is the jewel in his crown. "This is a beauty with loads of minerality, almost liquefied rock-like character, and plenty of spicy red and black currants moving toward blueberry and blackberry. It is rich, shows some licorice, a layered texture and a long, long finish. This is another 20 to 30-year wine." Galloni calls it "Vivid and utterly captivating, a wonderfully complete wine that brings together aromatic complexity, unctuous fruit and powerful structure." Is this the finest wine grown in Coombsville?

The name Paul Hobbs is synonymous with fine California winemaking. Born into a farming family in New York, Paul borrowed early life experience to reinvent modern winemaking by employing a classical approach that pays the utmost attention to quality farming and treating the fruit minimally so that it can convey a true sense of place. While his uncanny ability to ferret out unique and expressive vineyards and undiscovered regions has only enhanced his reputation, a resume that includes winemaking stints at Opus One and Simi, as well as consulting projects with Peter Michael, Fisher Vineyards and Lewis has helped position himself as one of California's best guiding hands in the cellar. All the wine projects lucky enough to be associated with Paul Hobbs are farmed sustainably. Furthermore, crop yields are kept low to boost flavor intensity, grapes are sorted by hand, juice is turned to wine with the aid of native yeasts and the wines are bottled without fining or filtration. Paul's reach spans far and wide, with his own wineries Paul Hobbs and CrossBarn in California, and ViƱa Cobos in Argentina. Word on the street is that he's even got his hands on grapes from Chile, Uruguay, France and Armenia. He's got us wondering, what will this globetrotting winemaker do next?
