    Default 2008 Paul Hobbs Cabernet

    Met a friend last night for dinner at my favorite restaurant. Love
    the grilled Onglet so I ordered a bottle of 2008 Paul Hobbs Napa
    Valley Cabernet. He bought dinner I bought the wine. We started with
    a glass of NV Rene Geoffroy Rose Champagne. Nice mousse, firm flavors
    with cherry and ripe strawberry flavors. Nice change of pace served
    with a mortadella and roasted beet salad. The 2008 Paul Hobbs
    Cabernet was a real surprise. Deep purple in the glass with a ton of
    cassis and a hint of oaky vanilla on the nose. Medium weight, smooth
    and polished. Black cherry, black currant a bit of wet gravel on the
    finish. Smooth ripe tannins. "B+/A-"

    I've never tried 2008 Paul Hobbs Napa before, but after reading this,
    I'll consider it on my next wine tasting.
