Natalie's Score: 92/100

Mocha rich on the nose with aromas of fleshy blackberries and plums and chocolate. Round and layered with lots of length on the finish. This full-bodied red wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon but also includes a splash of Cabernet Franc grapes in the blend. Decant 1-2 hours. This would be a terrific dinner party wine or gift wine. Give it to yourself!

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pork tenderloin, lamb with rosemary.

Reviews and Ratings

This is a classic Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon (2013) produced by Paul Hobbs. Lots of texture and refinement on this wine. Mostly produced from the estate vineyards in Coombsville, the wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
