Wine tasting notes

Dark ruby in colour, with enticing aromas of dark cherries, ripe blueberries, anise and fresh lavender. A tantalising palate offers a medley of boysenberry, currants, violets, clove and cocoa. Tannins are sweet and smooth; balanced acidity brightens a lengthy finish

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 93 pts

Mar '16 - . Reviewer : Robert Parker. Even better news is the Crossbarn 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. There are 10,500+ cases of this wine, and while $50.00 is hardly a bargain, this is a brilliant wine from Hobbs. There is a little Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the blend, but it reflects this great vintage, revealing blueberry, blackberry and cassis as well as some licorice, incense, and forest floor. The wine has full-bodied opulence, a sumptuous mouthfeel, and is just a terrific, savory, expansive Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for 15 or more years.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2014) - 89 pts

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossbarn (Sonoma County) opens with lovely aromatics. Precise and nuanced, the Sonoma Cabernet is a terrific example of the appellation. Gravel, smoke, cured meats and dark spices add further complexity throughout. The blend is approximately 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot, with a dollop of Cabernet Franc.


James Suckling (2014) - 93 pts

Aromas of violets, sage, lavender, and hints of currants. Blue fruit. Full body, very fine and polished tannins. Love the length and beauty. Very elegant. Drink or hold


Wine Enthusiast (2011) - 91 pts

This is a lovely wine to drink over the next 3–4 years, from one of Napa's masterful winemakers. It has the hallmarks of Napa Cabernet, being dry and tannic, with subtle oak influences on the blackberry and currant flavors. Give it an hour or two in the decanter before serving.
