PAUL HOBBS CAB DR. CRANE '15
PAUL HOBBS CABERNET SAUVIGNON, BECKSTOFFER DR. CRANE VINEYARD, ST. HELENA NAPA VALLEY 2015
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.
Fresh and spicy, this subtle style offers lively plum, black cherry and blackberry flavors, presented in a graceful, supple manner, with caressing tannins. Drink now through 2030. 815 cases made.—J.L.
