Paul Hobbs Hyde Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
Wine AdvocateThe 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Hyde Vineyard may be the finest Cabernet I have ever tasted from Carneros (better known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah). Sadly, there are less than 500 cases of this sensational offering. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in Taransaud barrels, this full-bodied, thick, rich 2001 offers up aromas of licorice, pepper, black currants, and loamy soil. Pure, multi-layered, supple, and rich, it is best drunk between 2004-2018.
