Pomegranate violet color. On the nose, wild red raspberries, strawberries and pomegranate, fresh herbs thyme/sage, forest floor and hibiscus tea. On the palate, fresh and juicy, red cherries, raspberries, with a coolness of rhubarb, black tea spice. Graceful polished tannins throughout the palate led to a long savory finish.
92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Crossbarn 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is another knockout winner. A Sonoma Coast cuvée of just over 11,000 cases, the wine (made from Dijon clones 777 and 115 and the Calera selection) exhibits some smoky barbecue notes, baking spice, loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, medium to full body, and plenty of spice, but the purity of fruit and lusciousness are head-turners, especially at this price point. The two cuvées of Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon are also noteworthy values. 90-92 points

Pleasingly rich and juicy, with blackberry, wild berry and blueberry flavors. Easy now and a good bet to gain. Drink now through 2020. 13,192 cases made.
Scented and welcoming with a warm baking-spice core, this Pinot is rich and ripe in an almost blowsy style. Slightly stewed fruit on the palate too.
