The base release is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon and it comes from multiple sites throughout the valley. It’s a killer wine and offers the classic sweet crème de cassis and blackberry fruit that's the hallmark of the vintage. With full-bodied richness, notes of Asian spices, pencil lead, and cedar, and sweet tannin, it's already drinking beautifully yet will keep for another two decades or more.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with fresh, exuberant cassis and crushed blackberry notes plus hints of cigar box, dried Mediterranean herbs, violets and Marmite toast... Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with fresh, exuberant cassis and crushed blackberry notes plus hints of cigar box, dried Mediterranean herbs, violets and Marmite toast. Full-bodied and built like a brick house, with firm, grainy tannins and lively acid supporting the generous black berry and savory flavors, it finishes with great length and poise. It is drinking beautifully now but has the stuffing to cellar for 12+ years. 6,810 cases were made. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Paul Hobbs' 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a gorgeous wine. Beams of tannin give the wine much of its distinctive profile, but that is not especially surprising given that 55% of the fruit is sourced from Hobbs... Paul Hobbs' 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a gorgeous wine. Beams of tannin give the wine much of its distinctive profile, but that is not especially surprising given that 55% of the fruit is sourced from Hobbs' Nathan Coombs estate. Dark cherry, plum, graphite and savory herbs are some of the signatures. Drink the 2014 over the next decade or so. The interplay of racy fruit and insistent underlying structure is compelling. Dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot round out the blend.

Paul Hobbs

Growing up on a working farm in upstate New York, Paul Hobbs experienced first-hand the influence of terroir on the character of fruit when his father had him taste apples of the same variety grown in different orchards several miles apart from one another. The diversity of flavors and textures made an impression on him and would later influence his approach to winemaking. Paul later helped his father achieve a lifelong dream of transforming some of the farm’s acreage from apples, nuts and peaches to wine grapes.

As a winemaker, Paul is highly regarded for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards, and for his pioneering spirit in working innovatively with new and historical sites and regions. His success has inspired a wealth of nicknames among the press, from quiet trendsetter to prospector to truffle-hunting dog. Initially hired by Robert Mondavi for his advanced understanding of oak aging, he was promoted to the inaugural Opus One wine-making team. Following his Mondavi experience, Paul joined Simi Winery as Winemaker before going on to consult for Peter Michael, Fisher Vineyards, Lewis Cellars, Bodegas Catena and others. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991, Vina Cobos in 1999 and continues to be a leading consultant winemaker around the globe.
