Offers a dazzling bouquet bursting with blueberry, black currant, blackberry, and hints of spice and cooking herbs leads to a palate that is simply tremendous. It is packed with dense fruit, baking spices, and is showing immaculate balance. The finish is powerful and persistent. Outstanding right out of the bottle, it will easily continue to evolve for the next 7-10 years.
The story of Hobel Wines began in 1998, when Cameron first met friend and winemaker Thomas Brown in Napa. Cameron was working as the Director of Business Development at Winebid.com and Thomas was working as Assistant Winemaker at Turley Wine Cellars. Their mutual love of great wine led to many shared dinners and glasses of wine, where they discussed the prospect of finding a project that would allow them to work together in producing a world-class wine. The opportunity finally arose eleven years later, with the 2009 Hobel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
