2013 Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon CrossBarn Napa Valley
Wine Advocate Paul Hobbs Winery, 2013 Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon CrossBarn Napa Valley
"...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." –Mar 2016
Vinous Paul Hobbs Winery, 2013 Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon CrossBarn Napa Valley
"Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and spice meld together in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossbarn (Napa Valley). Silky, racy and open-knit, the 2013 is a delicious wine to drink now and over the next few years. The flavors are bold, punchy and incisive, with firm tannins that could use another 6-12 months to soften. -AG"
