JS 95 WE 93 AG 91 Pts - According to James Suckling - This is a fabulous 2011 with amazing mint, eucalyptus and berry character. Some iron and stone. Full body. Wonderful length. One of the best from the vintage. Don't miss this. Classic Napa cabernet. Better in 2017 but so refined and enchanting now.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Paul Hobbs coaxes beautifully classic Cab aromas and textures from this wine, which comes from the tricky 2011 vintage. Expect black currant, olive, cassis and peppercorn to intermingle on the palate amidst soft elegance, the perfect balance between fruity and herbal. On the finish a dusting of mocha turns up the dial on deliciousness.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon jumps from the glass with sweet spices, cloves, menthol, plums, iron, red cherries and tobacco. A soft, supple Cabernet for the year, the 2011 has lovely balance, not to mention considerable early appeal. The finish is long, creamy and expressive. Another year or two should help soften the slightly firm 2011 tannins.
According to Robert Parker - The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa displays a denser saturated ruby/purple color as well as a pure, spicy bouquet with lots of black currants, medium body and an abrupt, gritty finish. This excellent Cabernet should be drunk in its first 7-8 years of life.
Winemakers Notes - Bordeaux?like in structure and purity, our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is both svelte and succulent. In addition to our Nathan Coombs Estate, sourcing for this wine includes Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras and Stagecoach vineyards. These properties, whose prestige we have helped build, represent the best of Napa Valley. We are able to farm each as our own, via long?term contracts defined down to the block, row and vine.
Aromas include cassis, lavender, fresh crushed sage, black olive and cedar. The generous and savory palate excites with black fig, dark chocolate, tobacco leaf, and graphite. The wine finishes long and pure with an element of fine, damp black clay. 14.4% ABV. Rated 90+
