"2014 tends to be a front-end loaded, fruity and effusive vintage that will certainly please consumers. They may even prefer it, at least out of the gate, to the more profoundly concentrated and structured 2013s. Hobbs has really hit pay dirt with his bevy of 2014s, which are all still in barrel. The 2014 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon displays great fruit, wonderful richness, and a plush texture and forwardness. "

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as quite similar to the 2013, but with a bit more brightness and aromatics. Linear and precise, the 2014 is a wine built on fabulous persistence and exceptional balance at this level. This is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Paul Hobbs adds that the 2014 has a bit more estate fruit than in prior years, which is likely to continue as more fruit from the Nathan Coombs estate vineyard comes online. -AG"

"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."
