Deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard reveals notes of blackberry preserves and blueberry compote with chocolate box, star anise, sandalwood, dried meat and black loam nuances. The full-bodied palate is earthy and muscular, with a solid frame of ripe, grainy tannins and just enough freshness to support the taut earthy and savoury flavours, finishing on a lingering spicy note.
Lead pencil shavings, cedar wood, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur as well as hints of forest floor and tobacco leaf are all present in this fragrant, sumptuously textured, full-bodied, massively rich yet sensationally well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.
This 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is more narrowly framed than usual, but it remains a powerful, impressive 2011. A dense ruby/purple colour is followed by copious aromas of cassis, liquorice, Christmas fruitcake, earth, and spice. With the finest texture and sweetness of all the 2011 Hobbs cuvees, it is expansive, rich, and surprisingly strong as well as long
A much darker and more virile wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard opens with beguiling aromatics that meld into a core of blue and black fruit, exotic spices, tar, smoke and violets. The 2010 boasts superb depth, power, and richness in a weighty, brooding style that is the essence of To Kalon. A huge, intense finish rounds things out in style.

Dubbed the ‘Steve Jobs of wine’ by Forbes magazine, Paul Hobbs is a renowned winemaker and consultant. Highly regarded not only for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards, but also for his pioneering spirit in working innovatively with new and historical sites and regions.

Hired by Robert Mondavi for his advanced understanding of oak ageing, he went on to become winemaker for Opus One and Simi wineries. He founded Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991 and Viña Cobos in Argentina in 1999.

“Terroir-driven Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon are the focus at Paul Hobbs Winery.” Paul Hobbs

Paul Hobbs Winery bought its first estate property in the Russian River Valley naming it Lindsay Vineyard in honour of Paul’s great grandmother and planted it with five clones of Pinot Noir. Two neighbouring estate properties have since been planted with Chardonnay. The winery also works closely with growers of some of Napa and Sonoma’s most compelling and historical properties.

“I strive to create exuberant, intensely flavoured, richly textured wines of structure and balance that reflect the specific personality of each vineyard site. You might describe our winemaking as modern classic. Making wine, like living well, is a balance of experience and intuition, discipline and discovery. We believe we can make the best wines by keeping our roots firmly planted in traditional winemaking principles while availing ourselves of modern techniques. This approach allows us to constantly improve the quality of our wines.” Paul Hobbs
