Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
A blend of cabernet sauvignon fruit from select vineyards across Napa Valley, this deep ruby wine opens with inviting aromas of black cherry, black peppercorn, and toasted sage. Rich, dark fruits are densely layered on the palate, balanced by a graphite backbone and beautifully integrated tannins leading to a persistent finish.
Blueberries, purple fruit and lavender. Crushed stones and raspberries, too. Medium-bodied and so fresh and vivid, with creamy tannins and a really long finish. Touch of vanilla. Just delicious.
A nice, extroverted wine, with a bright beam of raspberry and red currant pâte de fruit driving through, laced with energetic anise, bramble and apple wood notes along the way. Juicy energy carries through the finish. Drink now through 2030. 12,133 cases made.
A value-priced, entry level wine from the talents of Paul Hobbs, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a vivid purple hue as well as rock-solid notes of red and black currants, candied violets, incense, and tobacco. Beautifully textured and medium to full-bodied, with velvety tannins, it has a classic, round, sexy 2019 style that's already a joy to drink. Nevertheless, it's going to deliver the goods for at least 7-8 years. It's going to be up there with some of the top values in Napa Valley Cabernet.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is packed with juicy dark berry fruit, mocha, chocolate and spice. This supple, racy Cabernet is another terrific wine from Crossbarn. The Napa Cabernet is quite a bit more plush and opulent than the Sonoma bottling, but both are terrific. Best After 2021.
Almost entirely Cabernet Sauvignon from valley-floor sites, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley offers up scents of raspberries and cherries, plus hints of pencil shavings and crushed herbs. It's medium to full-bodied, with a smooth, silky feel and some dusty tannins on the finish. Easy and approachable but structured enough to pare with rare beef or lamb, it's a good example of what can still be achieved in Napa at a reasonable price.
