Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90-92 points
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.

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.

One of the real gems in this lineup, the 2014 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is fabulous. The Sonoma Coast Pinot brings together the exuberance that is typical of the Paul Hobbs wines with striking freshness and perfumed aromatics. Red cherry jam, spices and wild flowers are laced into the inviting, expressive finish. At around $35 a bottle, this is one of the very finest Sonoma Coast Pinots readers will find in its price range.
