Paul Hobbs has a spectacular worldwide reputation as a wine consultant and works with nearly three dozen wineries in California, Chile and Argentina. Hobbs also owns two wineries: Viña Cobos in Argentina, and Paul Hobbs in California. This rich, full-bodied red wine offers aromas of blackcurrant, cedar, pepper and cassis. Full-bodied with terrific structure and length.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: braised meats, herbed steaks, venison.

From the iconic Paul Hobbs comes a real powerhouse. The nose is dense and layered with cassis, vanilla, woodsmoke and dark cherry all very apparent. A touch of rosemary adds a further savoury complexity. Velvety smooth, but don’t let that fool you - this is a massive and generous wine. Ample structure for mid-term ageing.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
