Crossbarn by Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, 2013 (750ml)Winemaker's Notes
Vivid dark garnet color with a focused nose of black plums and dried herbs. The dense palate exudes Bing cherry, raspberry and fresh pomegranate flavors with hints of black tea and cedar. Supple tannins with peppery, mineral undertones round out the lengthy finish.
Vinous 91 points
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Bright red cherries, plums, mint, pine and spices lift from the 2013 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast). Aromatically nuanced and pliant, the 2013 impresses for its boisterous, joyous expression of the Coast. Drink this forward, fruit-driven Pinot over the next few years."
Tasting Panel 90 points
Tasting Panel - "Lush and smooth with ripe black raspberry and cherry; savory, juicy and lively with a long, spicy finish."
