Crossbarn is the project Paul Hobbs started to honor his family’s farming legacy. It is a great project and a Nicholas Wines favorite whenever we can get our hands on it.
Crossbarn strives to craft wines that capture the truest expressions of the Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County, and Napa Valley appellations. By sustainably nurturing each vineyard and using minimalist winemaking techniques, Crossbarn is a reflection of the ideals of farm life and having a deep sense of respect for family, a love of the land, and the joy of collaborative effort.
The 2018 Crossbarn Sonoma County is particularly good though. Armed with a 93-point score and a review from Antonio Galloni in which he called the wine, “beautiful” and “a hidden gem in Paul Hobbs’ range.”

93 Points, James Suckling
Aromas of blackberries, conifer, walnuts and dried flowers follow through to a full body with firm, silky tannins and a beautiful finish. It’s linear and fine. Juicy. A new addition of Alexander Valley and Blue Mountain give this some beauty. Drink or hold.
91 Points, Vinous
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma Valley) is absolutely gorgeous. Nearly half of the fruit is Paul Hobbs’s new estate vineyard in Alexander Valley plus Rancho Salina on Moon Mountain. Elegant, polished and refined, the 2018 is a very beautiful wine. Sweet red cherry, crushed flowers, spice and mint add lovely shades of aromatic nuance. The Sonoma Valley Cabernet is a hidden gem in Paul Hobbs’ range.
