"Lovers of Cabernet Franc are in for a real treat with the release of this newcomer produced by Paul Hobbs under his CrossBarn label. In fact, the 2014 Cabernet Franc comes from a single Moon Mountain vineyard, with a small inclusion of Cabernet Sauvignon (9%) coming from another site. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is scented of crushed red currants, black raspberries, cherries and mulberries with hints of wild thyme, pencil shavings, sandalwood and dusty earth. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm grip of chewy tannins and racy acid supporting the generous red and black fruit, finishing with lingering earthy notes. Only 364 cases were made."
