Paul Hobbs Winery, 2014 Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vyd

100
"Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard offers up a profound and singular nose of loam, rocks and iron ore over a core of black cherries, baked black berries and preserved plums with hints of licorice, dark chocolate, cedar, sautéed herbs and beef broth. Full-bodied, rich and demonstrating great depth with a wonderfully compelling personality, it delivers a multitude of savory meat and toast layers, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins. It finishes with incredible persistence, allowing those provocative mineral nuances to shine through. 844 cases were made."

"Though rich and full-flavored, this shows a seam of elegance and finesse that complements the dark berry, loamy, dusty earth and herb notes, with touches of gravel and oak. A mouthful of complexity. Best from 2019 through 2032."

Paul Hobbs Winery

VINEYARD: Beckstoffer Dr. Crane In St.Helena, Napa Valley. Planted on gravelly, alluvial soils, Cortina and Bale loam.

FERMENTATION: Hand Harvest, night picked. Fermented in closed top stainless steel with indigenous yeast. Spontaneous malolactic in barrel.

AGING: 20 Months in French Oak barrels, 100% new. Unfined and Unfiltered.

VINTAGE REPORT:2014 was the third straight outstanding growing season in a row, following the excellent 2012 and 2013 vintages. Dry winter and spring conditions limited canopy vigor, and a warm growing season with a lack of extreme heat spikes resulted in prolonged, even ripening through harvest. The resulting wines possess great site specificity, depth and quality.
