2013 Hobel Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2013 Hobel Cabernet Sauvignon is a remarkable wine. It is deeply colored and very concentrated. The highly perfumed nose has hints of sweet oak, cedar planks, bitter chocolate and blue and black fruits such as boysenberry and blueberry. The mouthfeel is massive, yet silky, with underlying tension that reverberates across the palate. Undeniably the biggest wine we have bottled to date, the 2013 Hobel Cabernet has copious amounts of fruit, the telltale structure and backbone that the vineyard site gives us and great acidity electrifying the finish.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
75% New French Oak
The Notes (From Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown)
As good as the 2012 is, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon may turn out to be even better. Huge and explosive on the palate, the 2013 boasts stunning depth and power. Violets, crushed rocks, blood orange, incense and blackberry jam are all laced into the incisive, strapping finish
