Paul Hobbs 'Crossbarn' Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark ruby in color, our cabernet sauvignon offers enticing aromas of dark cherries, ripe blueberries, anise and fresh lavender. A tantalizing palate offers a medley of boysenberry, currants, violets, clove and cocoa. Tannins are sweet and smooth; balanced acidity brightens a lengthy finish.

Paul Hobbs Winery sprouted from the passion of one man: Paul Hobbs. Paul wasn’t satisfied just becoming Head Enologist of Robert Mondavi’s Opus One in 1981, or becoming Vice-President/Winemaker of Simi Winery in 1989. No, he wanted to create his very own grapes, on his own land. This passion led to the creation of Paul Hobbs Winery in 1991. Focused in the Russian River Valley, each harvest is meticulously captured so as to extract the very best from each grape. This passion started with only three wines in the winery’s repertoire: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but the winery quickly grew to produce over a dozen wines. Today, Paul Hobbs still consults other wineries around the globe, including wineries in Chile, Argentina, and Hungary. Read less

Color: Saturated crimson Aroma: Black raspberry, boysenberry, violets, caramelized tobacco leaf, spicebox, pencil shavings Flavor: Concentrated, juicy red fruits, damp earth, cedar, baking spices Texture: Round and focused with sweet, fine-grained tannins and a long, slate-like finish - Winery Winemaking: * Hand-harvested, hand-sorted * 27-day total maceration, 5 day cold soak * Primary fermentation using selected yeasts * Native malolactic fermentation * Aged 20 months in French and American oak barrels, 14% new Growing Season: The 2012 growing season has been described by many as “textbook perfect”. Temperate summer days moderated plant growth, contributing to smaller cluster and berry size during lag phase, leading to increased concentration of flavors. An idyllic Indian summer finished the maturation process, producing fruit with exceptional character and intensity. ** Only 3 in Stock **
