Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Rich and luxurious, this deep ruby-colored wine displays a lovely purity of fruit, with aromas of blackcurrant and boysenberry leading to notes of blueberry and a touch of dried herbs on the palate. Finely grained tannins and a backbone of graphite balance the plush black fruits, creating a silky mouthfeel with a smooth yet powerful finish. Sourced from select vineyards across Napa Valley, this wine beautifully encapsulates the entirety of the appellation.
This wine makes an excellent pairing alongside grilled skirt steak with shiso chimichurri.

A juicy, fruity red with plum, blueberry, chocolate and some hazelnut. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a delicious finish. Always balanced and excellent quality.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91
The Napa Valley vineyard sources for the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley were spread all the way from Calistoga to Coombsville. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers bold, seductive scents of Black Forest cake, warm cassis and ripe black plums with hints of lavender, menthol and spice cake. The medium to full-bodied palate offers mouth-filling black fruit preserves flavors with a ripe, grainy texture and a long, spicy finish.
Wine Spectator 90
Bright and direct, with a lively edge to the cassis and cherry reduction core that has good cut through the licorice-coated finish. Drink now through 2026.
Although the land mass of Napa Valley is only 30 miles long and only a few miles wide, the region is incredibly diverse, with 33 distinct series of soils and wide range of microclimates. Situated between the Mayacamas Mountain Range to the west and Vaca Mountains to the east, the region enjoys a Mediterranean climate bringing sunny, warm days followed by cool evenings, allowing grapes to ripen slowly. The appellation’s proximity to the San Pablo Bay allows for cool ocean air to be funneled up the valley from the south, which helps to moderate temperatures, allowing for a range of microclimates from the cooler southern appellations to the warmer northern end of the valley.
Taking advantage of this diversity in both climate and terroir, we source from a number of vineyards ranging from the north to the south of this famed appellation in order to capture the range of complexity in cabernet sauvignon fruit from the region.
