2019 Sonoma Coast
Balanced and elegant with full, bright fruit and complex earth notes that hail from our carefully selected cool Sonoma Coast vineyards.
Vibrant ruby in color, the wine is bursting with aromas of juicy pomegranate, bing cherry, and rhubarb, with hints of earl grey tea and cinnamon. Elegantly layered notes of ripe strawberry, raspberry, and fennel fronds create a harmonious and lifted palate accented by a delicate acidity and a subtle salinity, which hearkens to its source along the Sonoma Coast.
92pts, The Wine Advocate
“The 2019 Pinot Noir from Crossbarn is a tremendous value and the best iteration I’ve tasted so far. Medium ruby-purple in color, it has pure aromas of cranberries and blackberries laced with earthy and spicy undertones. The palate is light-bodied, fresh and bright with transparent fruit framed by just enough anchoring texture.” – Erin Brooks
