Paul Hobbs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
From its alluring deep garnet to its engaging aromas of wild blackberry, cocoa, and dried sage, the wine is endowed with refinement and definition by sourcing from first-rate sites within the region. A core of succulent dark plum and black currant envelope the palate with delineated accents of lavender, tobacco and crushed graphite that hold through the long finish across fine grained tannins and balanced acidity. Lovely with aged goat milk cheese and jamón ibérico or classic beef bourguignon. Serve at 50°-55° F.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is just as delicious from bottle as it was from barrel. Deep, fleshy and super-expressive the 2016 has a lot to offer. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender, mint and spice notes all grace this alluring Napa Valley Cabernet from Paul Hobbs.
Solidly built, with a core of dark currant and blackberry paste flavors, carried by well-embedded structure and ending with graphite and anise notes on the finish. Drink now through 2026.
