"A rich and flavorful red with black currants, chocolate and hints of spices. Full and balanced with beautifully polished tannins and length. A fine and gorgeous wine. Drink or hold."

"Hobbs' least expensive wine and an excellent value is called Crossbarn, and the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossbarn is a beautifully put together wine that transcends its rather humble origins. Dense ruby/purple with plenty of blackcurrant fruit and sweet tannin, this may well turn out to be the modern-day version of the 1974 Souverain Vintage Selection that I raved about when it was under $10 and the wine is still going strong 40 years later. Of course, the joy of this is to drink it early on, but there is plenty of stuffing and classic Cabernet character, so there’s no hurry. I wouldn’t be surprised in 20 years’ time to see somebody pull out a bottle that would prove a revelation in quality."
