This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family. Your Premiere Napa Valley wine is from Paul Hobbs’ favorite barrel of 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, fine-tuned with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The fruit was sourced from a treasured block of their first estate vineyard in the Napa Valley, in the Coombsville nested appellation. The region is known for its cool climate, allowing for an extended growing season, resulting in wines with an intense black fruit and mineral profile. Having aged 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels, this is a complex wine articulating power and finesse.

Winemaker, Paul Hobbs

Regarded as an international visionary for his accomplishments in the vineyard and winery, Paul Hobbs combines his childhood roots on the family farm with an innovative scientific approach to refine the art of winemaking. He is recognized across the globe for breaking with tradition and forging new paths in the pursuit of excellence; both in stewardship of the land, and the crafting of wines that represent the purist concept of place. Paul earned his BS in Chemistry from the University of Notre Dame in 1975, and MS in Viticulture and Enology from the University of California, Davis in 1978. Shortly thereafter, he became a member of the enology team at Robert Mondavi Winery, and one year later, at the behest of Robert Mondavi himself, Paul was invited to be on the inaugural team of Opus One. A first trip to Argentina in 1988 marked the beginning of a South American winemaking career that carries on today with his wines from Viña Cobos, and his legendary status as the pioneer who launched malbec’s rise to fame.
