    Description

    Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
    Beckstoffer, To-Kalon Vineyard
    owc
    Bottle (6)
    "After the perfect 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard (that's right, I raised my score by a point), the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon comes across as slightly more mortal. One of the outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons of the vintage, it tastes like a California concoction of La Mission Haut Brion and Montrose. Its deep purple color is followed by a sumptuously pure nose of sweet scorched earth, hot rocks, creme de cassis, graphite, and charcoal. The tannin is sweet, but elevated. Full-bodied and powerful, with 20-25 years of life, this spectacularly rich, dense, multi-layered effort oozes classic Cabernet Sauvignon varietal character." (97pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #162, Dec 2005)
