WS 90
Wine Spectator
Showcases enticing açaí berry and loganberry fruit at center stage, gilded with polished toast and hints of violet and warm earth on the toasty finish.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
An opaque, smoky-red color and spiced aromas of violets, black currants and cinnamon lead to concentrated, layered dark chocolate, blueberries and blackberries in this gorgeous, fruit-saturated wine. It is tempting enough to enjoy now, and will be best from 2025–2035.
WA 93
Wine Advocate
Harvested between September 24 and October 1, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 71% new French oak. It features scents of black cherries, cassis, baked pastry dough and cinnamon on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is almost creamy-lush in texture, finishing long, velvety and just a bit warm.
DEC 94
From Paul Hobbs, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is aged 20 months in 71% new French oak. The nose is pure, fresh, and inviting, with dark black fruits and cedar-rich spices. On the palate, silken waves of saturated purple-black fruits are intermixed with a panoply of dried herbs, while prominent acidity creates balance and tension. At this stage, in 2023, this wine is so much mouthfeel and tension that it will be one to hold and try in 2024, then enjoy over the next couple of decades.
JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is a beautiful effort with considerable charm and elegance. Pretty cassis, scorched earth, and graphite notes all emerge on the nose, and it’s medium to full-bodied and has a nicely concentrated, balanced profile on the palate that’s already drinking nicely. It is certainly more accessible and easier to read than the Nathan Coombs Estate release.
JS 96
James Suckling
A rich and layered red with blackcurrant, dark chocolate and purple fruit. Full and solid with beautiful flavors. Consistent, juicy and delicious. Blue fruit and mint at the end. Spicy. A triumph for the vintage. Drink now or hold.
