"This is layered and intense with aromas and flavors of chocolate, bark and tea bags. Full body, round and soft tannins, and a delicious finish. Drink now. Why wait."
Paul Hobbs Winery, 2015 Paul Hobbs 'CrossBarn' Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma County) is endowed with serious complexity and personality. An infusion of black cherry, chocolate, grilled herbs, leather and spice hits the palate as this explosive, resonant Cabernet shows off its breadth and pure power. Cabernet Sauvignon can be magical in Sonoma, as this bottling from Crossbarn ample demonstrates."

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County has lovely red and black currant fruit with underlying notions of dried herbs, dusty earth and sandalwood. Medium to full-bodied and solidly structured, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy. 1,566 cases were made."

91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot

VINTAGE An otherwise flawless season commenced with unfavorable spring weather which drove poor crop set, and also caused set to occur over an extended period leading to uneven ripening, and necessitating extensive thinning — a combination of factors that led to 30-35% below average yields. Careful vineyard work and good conditions throughout the rest of the season achieved exceedingly concentrated fruit of balance and quality. The result are lively wines, with a purity of fruit that express their appellation of origin with typicity.

VINIFICATION 5-day cold soak, 25-day maceration; Native malolactic fermentation; Barrel aged for 20 months, 12% new American oak, 3% new French oak. Bottled unfined.
