Crossbarn 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied and elegant Californian Cab produced by master winemaker Paul Hobbs. Very yummy with layers of dark berry, dark cherry, mint, wild herb and black tea flavours juicy on the palate. Finishes with vibrant acidity for food. Pair with grilled meats. Enjoy now and for the next 15 years. - Community Wine Reviews
