Hob Nob Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Sponsored Wine Review (NW)



This wine was sent complimentary to The Wine Cask Blog in exchange for a review.


Tasting notes:

Raspberry jam, licorice, and oak on the nose

Full bodied on the palate

Red berries and chocolate on the finish

Summary:

With grapes sourced from France, this wine is being cleverly marketed along with a Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, a several others from the same producer. It's a basic varietal Cabernet with a decent flavor profile but seems a bit "manufactured" with oaky touches and jammy fruit bordering on candy sweetness.

For $10.99, it competes in the value price category. While it's catchy and well packaged, it suffers from a lack of place and a lack of distinction. Raise a glass of something more interesting!

I recently tasted the 2009 and thought it was pretty good. Similar characteristics from the 2007 review above. Dark and jammy. It's a popular wine in restaurants in Connecticut.
