Outer quote mark This is a fantastic example of the super 2013 vintage in Napa. Full body, currants, graphite, spice, and light chocolate. The length and balance to this is superb. Don't miss it. Inner quote mark (1/2016)

Outer quote mark Even better news is the Crossbarn 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. There are 10,500+ cases of this wine, and while $50.00 is hardly a bargain, 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

On the nose, this wine shows notes of dark currant, cassis, red licorice, mocha and wilted purple flowers. Fruit-forward on the palate, it's full bodied, herbaceous and darkly fruited. Drink now though 2026.

Blackberry and toasted oak on the nose. I was pleased by the melted, juicy tannin structure, with solid length, dark blackberry fruit and just enough back end grip. This wine can be enjoyed now, or lay it in the cellar for 10+ years.

Despite how young this Cab is, it is ready to drink. Reflective of the excellent 2013 vintage in structure, this wine is full of ripe fruit and rich blueberry notes. It is full bodied and savory; lots of flavor here without being jammy. Crossbarn is not just some second label, this is a bottle worthy of drinking for its own sake.

Following the hands-off approach of the Crossbarn label, the fruit dominates the profile as only a small bit of oak (usually less than 20%) is used. Black currant, forest floor, and graphite dominate the aromas while bright acidity lifts flavors of black cherry, sage, and tart red raspberry. Fine grain tannins carry the wine to an impressive finish. There is a unique character to this wine, but it also has the telltale concentration and structure of the '13 vintage. Enjoy now with a few hours' decant, or follow over the next 6-12 years.
