Crossbarn Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet toasty oak spice frames fresh and bright dried herb laced smoky black cherry fruit on the nose with gentle toasted coriander accents. A bit dense in the mouth, rich with wild raspberry fruit and almost chewy with soft, supple tannins. This is a fine example of a ripe wine that shows some restraint. The flavors build in the mouth gaining a hint of blackcurrant on the mid-palate with fine mineral and pomegranate seed accents leading to a moderately long, smooth and polished finish. It’s a relatively larger scaled Pinot but it doesn’t lack freshness of elegance, right through the fine, almost sandy finish. Shows a whisper of heat and a little spiciness on the finish. 91pts
