Tasting Notes

WA98

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. Rating: 98+

WE94

An n ultrarich Cabernet whose ripe fruit is as elaborate as you can get. Ditto for the soft, plush tannins and the wealth of fine, sweet oak. Despite the wealth of blackberry, currant, dark chocolate and cola flavors, it’s not a wine to drink now, because the tannins and acids are so pert. Give it a good six years in the cellar.

The Winery

Paul Hobbs Winery

Paul Hobbs Winery was founded in 1991 by its devoted winemaker of the same name who focused on using minimally invasive winemaking techniques to create products true to their varietals. Located in the city of Sebastapol, the winery focuses on single-varietal made from Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chardonnay from leading vineyards spanning from Sonoma to Napa County.

The 2002 “Beckstoffer To Kalon” Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is one of an exclusive group of wines to reach 100 points awarded by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. The visual, bouquet and palate characteristics are most remarkable for their striking and dynamic attributes in each unique statement of the wine. Their level of quality has continued as the winery has developed over the years, and Benchmark Wine Group is delighted to share it with you.
