Paul Hobbs CrossBarn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
An exuberant garnet, this 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the complexity and diversity of the Napa Valley vineyard sites from which it is sourced. Vivid aromas of ripe blackberry, red currant, cacao and cigar box harmonize with flavors of freshly crushed wild berry, allspice, and sweet tobacco. Layers of red and black cherry emerge alongside marked minerality, framed by fine grain tannins evolving throughout a long, energetic finish.
Rich and round, the tannins in this full-bodied wine are sweet and elongated, with a midpalate of cassis, crayon wax and mocha swirling around one another and smoky, toasted oak.
