Juicy and ripe, with abundant tasty plum puree and cassis notes lined with light-handed apple wood, anise and violet details. Turns a shade darker in the end, with a subtle loam edge that helps hold the finish. Really solid, offering lovely purity. Blind 2013 California Cabernet retrospective (February 2023). Drink now through 2034. 638 cases made. - James Molesworth

The second perfect score I have given to a Hobbs Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (the other was the 2002), the 2013 is as spectacular as his 2002 was. There are 638 cases of this massive wine that comes across like a first-growth Pauillac. Lead pencil shavings, cedar wood, blueberry and blackberry liqueur as well as hints of forest floor and tobacco leaf are all present in this fragrant, sumptuously textured, full-bodied, massively rich yet sensationally well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a finish of well over 55 seconds. This is amazing work, and interestingly, I believe Hobbs was the first to offer a Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard designated Cabernet Sauvignon. -Robert Parker Jr.
