Crossbarn by Paul Hobbs 2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir | Alc: 14.5%
Sonoma Coast, California
Deep purple in color, the wine opens with fresh aromatics of violets, cinnamon spice, orange zest and strawberry jam. The palate is vibrant and rich, with juicy wild berry, baked rhubarb, and baking spice that’s surrounded by velvety tannins. Mouthwatering acidity and attractive mineral notes lead to a long, energetic finish.
“The 2017 Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and inviting scents of pomegranate liqueur, crushed cranberries and Bing cherries with nuances of orange peel, potpourri and autumn leaves. Light to medium-bodied, it offers loads of bright, spicy fruits, with a gently grainy frame and seamless freshness, finishing long and bright. 12,632 cases produced.” 91 Points – The Wine Advocate
“Fresh raspberries, lemon rind, orange zest, rhubarb, red cherries and fresh herbs. Medium-bodied with bright acidity, firm tannins and a fresh, medium-chewy finish. Real Sonoma pinot.” 92 Points – James Suckling
“Crisp and well-structured, with a sinewy texture to the ripe cherry and dried berry flavors. The inky finish offers hints of pepper and mocha.” 91 Points – Wine Spectator
