Paul Hobbs 2012 Nathan Coombs Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

This inaugural release of Nathan Coombs Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal introduction to what this dynamic vineyard has to offer. Opaque with a compact ruby rim, this wine entices with aromas of cassis, blackberry tart, mocha, and black olive. The defined and intense palate builds in depth with flavors of moist earth, dark chocolate and hints of graphite. Bold, chewy tannins fill the mouth and solidify the aging potential of this wine.

James Suckling - 95 Points: "A cool and inline red with dark berry, mineral and porcini mushroom character. Full, dense and tight with great fruit and depth. Very long and intense. Drink or hold."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94 Points: "Paul Hobbs has a long and a strong relationship with the Beckstoffer family for their first-growth-quality vineyards. He also works with other sites as well from the cool Coombsville sector of Southern Napa Valley from which emerges the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs. A lot of minerality and wet rocks in addition to copious quantities of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, beautiful purity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannins and adequate acidity, make for a beautiful, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next two decades."

Vinous - 94 Points: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs Estate Vineyard is deep, dense and explosive. Here, too, the French oak is a bit pronounced, but otherwise this is a fine effort. Graphite, smoke, incense and licorice all burst from the glass. An energetic, tense and vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon, the Nathan Coombs is a fabulous wine, especially for readers who enjoy ample, structured Cabernets."
