From the amazing Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Hobbs' 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a slightly more opulent broader savory effort that comes close to the perfect 2002. The 2007 has more noticeable tannin than the 2002 did at the same stage as well as more obvious minerality but notes of graphite black currant liqueur licorice cedar and spice box are found in this full-bodied multidimensional fabulously concentrated wine. It was aged in 100% new Taransaud French oak barrels. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. 98+

Expansive flamboyantly perfumed bouquet of black cherry raspberry cassis and whiffs of incense and licorice. Then sweet creamy and suave on the palate offering sappy dark berry preserve and floral flavors that are utterly seamless. Extremely long and gently tannic on the finish leaving behind sweet berry and floral pastille notes. This wonderfully vibrant deep elegant wine will be even better with another five years or so of bottle age but I'd have no trouble knocking one off now all by myself.-Josh Raynolds
