AG 91 WA 90 Pts -According to Antonio Galloni - "A striking wine that captures the essence of the year, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossbarn (Sonoma) impresses for its overall balance and class. Graphite, smoke, red plums and spices inform the vibrant, polished finish. This is a terrific showing from Crossbarn as well as a poignant reminder of just how delicious Sonoma Cabernets can be."
According to Robert Parker - "Another sleeper selection from Paul Hobbs is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cross Barn. From Sonoma County mountain fruit, there are 2,600+ cases of this outstanding Cabernet. It exhibits notes of damp earth, licorice, asphalt and lots of crème de cassis and espresso. Ripe and full-bodied with sweet tannin and low acidity, it will drink well for a decade or more."
Tasting Notes - "Deep crimson. Bing cherry, black currant, clove, and cinnamon. Juicy blueberry, boysenberry, cedar, sage, thyme and anise. Concentrated and structured with fine grain tannins, chewy and mouth coating leading to a long finish." 14.5% ABV.
