Paul Hobbs CrossBarn Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
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.
Robert Parker 91 Points "Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir is made with about 72% estate fruit and very little oak. It's a fresh style with open-knit aromas of roast cranberry and rhubarb with touches of dried leaves, soil and tar. The palate is medium-bodied, bright and juicy with good concentration and spiciness and a lifted finish. Enjoy it over the next two to three years. 19,500 cases produced."
Extremely fresh and fruity with plums and dried strawberries, as well as a citrus-peel undertone. Full body, light tannins and a delicious finish. Fruit-forward pinot noir.
Exuberantly juicy, with concentrated raspberry and red plum flavors that are supported by fresh acidity. The sleek finish has minerally and flinty components that are focused and fresh-tasting. Drink now through 2024.
With a good depth of strawberry and orange peel, this robust wine is generous in tannin and oak, with a lasting richness of cola and baking spice.
