It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one. Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim. Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, cedar, leather, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, mocha and coffee. Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs. Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, chocolates, light herbs, mocha, coke and light earth. Medium finish with fine tannins and tangy cherries. This is a very tasty Napa Cabernet based Bordeaux blend. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Very typical for a Napa Cabernet with lots of cedar and vanilla flavors. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Will get better in the next 5 to 10 years. I had it all by itself. Great wine from a great vintage. Yummy and delicious. A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. 14.5% alcohol by volume. 92 points. $55.

Serviceable, but presented with a high phenolic content. On the palette it was angular. Not well behaved. This is a pass and a surprise.

Nice nose of blue and black fruits. Palette is moderately sweet with tannins that are already integrated. Good second wine that will not support cellaring. Drink over the next 12 months.

Smooth, with an excellent bouquet that slowly finishes with dark berry nose.

Enjoyed a bottle of 2014 Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet with friends, steaks, & sweet potato fries. Very enjoyable & well-rounded. Blackberry and currant, long finish. At $50, a bit pricier than my typical bottle. But this is a big wine.
