This Cabernet Sauvignon is from a dry farmed, low yielding, hillside vineyard riddled with granite deposits. Each year this vineyard produces small-berried clusters of fully mature grapes from which we make wines of maximum concentration while preserving varietal distinction.
Vinum Cellars was established in 1997 based on producing value oriented, varietal/appellation specific wines. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley confirms our belief that only specific grape varietals should be grown within appellations that are ideally suited to the varietal.

“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Hoffman Vineyard is even a greater value and a big-time sleeper of the vintage. This wine has an even more impenetrable black/purple color, with notes of allspice, black cherry, blackcurrant, blueberry and white flowers. The wine hits the palate with a voluptuous texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is also 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with the same barrel aging regime. At $42.00 a bottle, it is a steal. Drink now-2032.”

Impressive at any price, but especially notable at this cost, this 100% varietal red is a testament to the power and concentration of the vintage, integrated with a push of tannin on the back of the tongue. Spicy clove and pepper ride a wave of cassis, dark cherry and chocolate, needing time to unwind in the glass. It will do well in the cellar through 2028.

"Black, rounded and supple in its alcohol, this drops off into tannin before finishing to sweet black currant flavor. Give it a year for the tannins to mellow, then serve with rump roast." - M.K.

"Robust and jammy, this Cab tastes like a cherry-chocolate truffle dessert, it’s that sweet, although it’s probably technically dry. If this soft, candied style appeals to you, you’ll love it." - S.H.
