Paul Hobbs Nathan Coombs Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Bold and precise, the wine exemplifies the Coombsville AVA by expressing the volcanic soils that run throughout the estate vineyard. A vivid purple rim surrounds an opaque core while penetrating aromas emerge from initial cassis and powdered chocolate, expanding to graphite and Herbs de Provence. An immediate burst of dark cherry and ripe blackberry intermingle with savory herbs and slate-like minerality against a backdrop of balanced acidity and firm tannins that brings tension to the powerful finish.
Exquisite with roasted rack of lamb with butter beans and spring onions. Serve at 50°-55° F.
