Editorial Reviews for Crossbarn Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
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

Bright ruby. Spice-accented red berries and candied rose on the nose. Tangy and precise, offering fresh raspberry and cherry flavors and a kick of tangy minerality. The finish is nervy, focused and long, leaving spiced red fruit and floral notes behind. I tasted the 2009 version next to this wine and it came off as richer and fleshier but less precise.
Tight and firm, with a pretty mix of blueberry, blackberry, plum and mineral flavors. Gains depth and holds its focus, fanning out on the finish. Drink now through 2018.
The 2010 Pinot Noir Crossbarn is a pretty, accessible Pinot with lovely varietal fruit, flowers, red berries and spices. It shows terrific delineation, focus and energy in its class. This gorgeous mid-weight Pinot will continue to drink well for the next 2andndash;3 years. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2015.
