This wine is composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley opens with spicy cassis and blueberry tart notions plus underlying bay leaves, cedar, pencil lead and smoked meat notes. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and packed with black berry and spice box flavor layers, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and instills plenty of freshness on the finish. (LPB)
Crossbarn’s Napa Valley offering is, like its mate just below, a solid very well-made Cabernet of fine concentration and focus. Its complex, multi-faceted aromas reveal discrete elements of violets, dusty soil and discrete oak layered atop deep and very specific curranty fruit all of which are replayed in the continuous, precise varietal flavors that ensue. While the wine is fleshy and full-bodied with plenty of integral tannin for age, its richness is bound to tempt early drinking, but we would lobby strongly for four or five years of patience.
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossbarn (Napa Valley) is plump, juicy and forward, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, chocolate, menthol and spices are all pushed forward. Drink this succulent, fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon over the next few years. (AG)
