Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard 2007
WA95-98: A Graves look-alike with scorched earth, blueberry, espresso bean, and chocolaty characteristics is the dense purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard. Deep and full-bodied with an unmistakable minerality as well as graphite notes, this huge, massive Cabernet Sauvignon boasts sensational richness, and a long, full-bodied, blockbuster finish. It will rival the 2006 as well as some of the previous great wines that have emerged from this vineyard.
WS95: Aging beautifully, this is rich and creamy, with dense, vibrant blackberry, currant, mocha, cedar and sage flavors. Holds focus. The tannins are well-integrated, easing a bit on the long, persistent finish.—Blind 1997/2007 California Cabernet retrospective (January 2017). Drink now through 2025. 586 cases made.
