WA 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The elegant 2012 Pinot Noir Cross Barn Sonoma Coast exhibits excellent notes of licorice, red and black currants and a hint of sweet cherries. With outstanding texture, velvety tannins and a delicious mouthfeel, this is a super value in high class Pinot Noir. Moreover, there are 10,000 cases. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years."
According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2012 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is plump, juicy and expressive. Rose petals, cinnamon and licorice add nuance in a racy, fruit-driven Pinot to drink now and over the next few years. The Sonoma Coast is a blend of fruit from the Russian River Valley and the true coast."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "This is a rich, flamboyant Pinot for drinking now. The raspberry and cherry flavors express California heat and sunshine, but you’ll find brisk coastal acidity for balance, as well as a luxurious layer of oak."
