Paul Hobbs Winery, 2015 Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard

"Deep garnet-purple, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard leaps from the glass with opulent crème de cassis, raspberry tart and black forest cake notions plus underlying cigar box, mocha, licorice and forest floor suggestions. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and decadently generous in the mouth, it has a firm, velvety foundation and wonderful precision, featuring an invigorating lift on the very long, multilayered and provocatively earthy finish. 815 cases were made."

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is rich, voluptuous and racy, as wines from this site tend to be. Sweet red cherry, raspberry, spice, new leather and white chocolate infuse this expressive, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon from Paul Hobbs. This has really come together nicely over the last year."

"This is very pensive on the nose with notes of dark plums, tile, cedar, tobacco, clay and licorice. Full body, tight tannins, taut acidity and a mineral finish. Really delicate and polished. But some austerity. Drink now or hold."
