5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Select barrel sourced from the Nathan Coombs Estate, purchased by Paul Hobbs Winery in 2012
  • Indigenous yeast fermentation, 30 days total maceration, 100% new French oak, unfined, unfiltered
  • Wine articulates power and finesse, purity of fruit, balance and precision
  • A wine poised to age gracefully for two decades and beyond

The Paul Hobbs Nathan Coombs Estate is a reflection of Paul’s obsessive quest toward the pinnacle of quality. Undulating hills of gravelly loams and rocky volcanic soils, and cooler temperatures than found further upvalley, provide for a site which expresses itself with power balanced by finesse, purity of fruit, precision and complexity in this rare and special wine. As with every Paul Hobbs estate, sustainability and responsible stewardship of the land are core to the farming philosophy. Fruit is hand-harvested with sheers only. The must is fermented with indigenous yeast in small closed-top tanks, and the resulting wine is aged in 100 percent new French oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Decades of experience with, and passion for, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon culminate in this single barrel, meticulously blended by Paul to showcase an authentic expression of this singular site.

Winemaker, Paul Hobbs

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.
