story of Hobel Wine Works began in 1998, when Cameron Hobel first met friend
and winemaker Thomas Brown in Napa. Cameron was working as the Director of
Business Development at Winebid.com and Thomas was working as Assistant
Winemaker at Turley Wine Cellars. Their mutual love of great wine led to many
shared dinners and glasses of wine, where they discussed the prospect of
finding a project that would allow them to work together in producing a
world-class wine. The opportunity finally arose eleven years later, with the
2009 Hobel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Thomas Rivers Brown is the face behind Schrader (100
Points) and Rivers Marie wines.
The 2010 Hobel Cabernet Sauvignon is more broad shouldered than the
inaugural 2009 vintage. The growing season was cooler, resulting in more of a
classic Cabernet Sauvignon, exhibiting aromas of cassis and black currant. The
acidity is a very large part of what gives the 2010 Hobel Cabernet Sauvignon
such a classic feel - it provides more cut and delineation and gives the wine a
light on its feet quality that's refreshing without sacrificing concentration.
