Red Table Wine
Located in the heart of the Sonoma Coast, CrossBarn is an innovative winery led by renowned winemaker Paul Hobbs. Dedicated to crafting wines of stunning quality and exceptional value, his approach combines sustainable vineyard practices and traditional technique. These sophisticated yet approachable wines focus on the expression of California’s most celebrated AVA’s, including the cool Sonoma Coast for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Produced using hand-harvested Pinot from select vineyards within the Sonoma Coast appellation, this wine balances structure and weight with pure, concentrated fruit flavours. Grapes were fermented in stainless steel by native yeast, largely de-stemmed berries with some whole bunches. Following ten months maturation sur lie in oak (10% new), the wine was bottled unfined, with minimal sulfur added. The release possesses great site specificity and depth.
This is a smart, alluring Pinot that highlights the unique terroir of the Sonoma Coast. The coast is one of California’s wild places, where vineyards lie on fog-washed hillsides open to salty ocean breezes.
Elegant and energetic, brilliant ruby in colour with red cherry and violet on the nose. The palate is rounded and generous, with red fruit, bergamot, and fine-grained tannins that lead to a long, savoury finish.
“The 2019 Pinot Noir has a medium ruby-purple color and lush scents of dried blueberries and cranberries, with nuances of blood orange, forest floor and violet. The medium-bodied palate has grainy tannins and rounded acidity to support its layered fruits, and it finishes long and flavorful.”

“Readers looking for a classic Pinot Noir that won’t break the bank yet brings loads of pleasure should latch onto a few bottles of the 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast. Revealing a translucent medium ruby color as well as textbook Pinot Noir notes of ripe cherry and mulberry fruits interwoven with sappy herbs, sous bois, and scorched earth, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness and plenty of mid-palate depth as well as a racy, vibrant spine of acidity. It’s a value-priced Pinot Noir, but I think it will benefit from another 6-12 months of bottle age, and I have no doubt it will keep for another 5-7 years. It’s incredibly well done.”
