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 2020 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is flush with pristine fruit on the nose, including cherry candy, crushed flowers, and forest floor. The palate is fresh with red raspberry and cinnamon, and it has refreshing acidity on the finish. This is a lovely, classic wine for drinking over the next couple of years.”
