With a commitment to sustainably nurturing the vineyards, while using labour-intensive winemaking techniques, Crossbarn wines offer a pure and youthful expression of fruit blended from diverse vineyards within California’s finest appellations.
“Medium to deep garnet-purple in colour, 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley leaps from the glass with vivacious Morello cherries, black raspberries and redcurrants scents followed by wafts of sandalwood, spice cake and camphor with a touch of dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, the softly textured palate bursts with juicy red and black berry flavours, finishing with great freshness.”
Should keep nicely for 7-8 years, if not longer.”
