“Classic” 96 points
”Offers a dazzling bouquet bursting with blueberry, black currant, blackberry, and hints of spice and cooking herbs leads to a palate that is simply tremendous. It is packed with dense fruit, baking spices, and is showing immaculate balance. The finish is powerful and persistent. Outstanding right out of the bottle, it will easily continue to evolve for the next 7-10 years.” - California Wine Advisors

THE STORY
Winemaker Thomas Rivers-Brown has captured nearly twenty “perfect” 100 point scores for his extraordinary Napa Cabernets, and many of his wines are among the most coveted among collectors. The Hobel Cabernet Sauvignon “The Figure” 2014 is his newest - a powerful and seductive wine that will impress Napa Cabernet afficianados. 

THE WINEMAKER
Thomas Rivers-Brown rose to celebrity when, in 2007, his Schrader Cabernets received “perfect” 100 point scores from both Robert Parker and Wine Spectator. To date, Rivers-Brown has received fifteen 100 point scores from Parker. His own Rivers-Marie Cabernets are very difficult to obtain and are coveted by collectors worldwide. 

THE VINEYARD
The RM Kennedy vineyard is a source that Thomas Brown has selected for his own Rivers-Marie project (hence the RM) and he controls the farming. The vineyard has just come online and this Hobel Cabernet is the debut release.
