Paul Hobbs CrossBarn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Aromas of blackberries, fresh figs, clove and graphite lead to a palate of bakers' chocolate, sandalwood and black plum. Polished tannins and a round mouthfeel frame this crimson-colored wine. This is an elegant and food friendly wine to be shared with friends and family.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with fresh, exuberant cassis and crushed blackberry notes plus hints of cigar box, dried Mediterranean herbs, violets and Marmite toast. Full-bodied and built like a brick house, with firm, grainy tannins and lively acid supporting the generous black berry and savory flavors, it finishes with great length and poise. It is drinking beautifully now but has the stuffing to cellar for 12+ years. 6,810 cases were made.
Wine SpectatorDusty, savory herb, dill and cedar flavors stand amid dried dark berry fruit, ending with the same core flavors. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 13,482 cases made.
