  • amazing!
    One of my fav CA Cabs ever it need an hour of air and was epic.

  • Decanted 2 hours. Coming together but still somewhat disjointed and alcoholic. The quality of fruit is very high, lots of blackberry liqueur fruit and silky tannins. This will benefit from at least 2-3 more years and should be unbelievable by 2020.

  • Decanted with a small amount of sediment. Tight nose. Deep and concentrated crimson red. Nose was rich with currants, vanilla and pencil lead. Lush, silky, sexy wine on the palette. Minute grippy tannins and medium acidity. Currants, oak, graphite, eucalyptus and mint.

    This wine was either in a dumb phase or just needs more time in the decanter. All the parts are there but it's just a little flabby. Only one left and I've giving it at least 5 more years.

  • Decanted for about 2 hours. I was somewhat disappointed with this bottle. There was much heat on the palate, muted fruit and seemed disjointed. This may just be in a bad place at the moment and need to sleep or a funky bottle but I was hoping for more considering how superb my last bottle tasted. I would recommend waiting for at least a year before drinking this vintage.

  • Third tasting with consistent notes, first tasting in 18 months. Decanted about 8 hours, small amount of sediment. Even after 8 hours in the decanter this wine was still very hard, softened up considerable overnight. Dark, rich fruit flavors, strong aromatics, typical Hobbs fruit profile, cherries. Aging slowly at best. Still needs more cellar time. Could be a 99 point wine at some point.
