Oh mama. As explained to me, this is the ultra rare combination of the best of the best from Paul Hobbs. And was it good? Ab-so-freaking-lutely. Very rounded mouthfeel. Nose of ripe blackberry currant, spice, cedar. You could smell the wine coming out of the bottle from about 2 feet away. Entry was all perfectly mature black fruit. As full bodied as a wine can be. The middle showing a little bit of smoke, tar, black licorice, mulling spices. This one really was perfectly balanced. The finish was still pooped, but it was a rounder type of roasted tannin. Tons of black pepper on the finish. I have no doubt this one could hold 20 or 30 years as the bones are definitely here and this one is a dense, dark, perfect example of a new age Napa Cabernet.

Deep purple coloration. On the nose, dark berries(blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry), tobacco, cassis and florals. On the palate, blackberry, cedar, cassis, with complex, layered flavors with a long finish. Thick, rich, texture with strong tannins.

Haven’t had in some time. Really like PH cabs. Very good but tight. Needs a while longer to reach its full potential.
