2013 CrossBarn Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

90 pts. - The Wine Advocate
Notes of orange blossom, carmelized citrus, lemon oil, wet stones and a hint of pineapple and mango are all present in this wine that has largely been aged in stainless steel to preserve freshness and vibrancy.  - Robert Parket Jr.

 

2013 CrossBarn Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

91 pts. - Vinous
Bright red cherries, plums, mint, pine and spices lift from the 2013 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast). Aromatically nuanced and pliant, the 2013 impresses for its boisterous, joyous expression of the Coast. Drink this forward, fruit-driven Pinot over the next few years.  -  Antonio Galloni

2013 CrossBarn Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley

90 pts. - Vinous
Dark red cherry, plum, spice, graphite and leather meld together in the 2013 Pinot Noir (Anderson Valley). Here the flavors are intense, brooding and earthy, with notable textural depth and baritone-like depth that adds considerable personality.  -  Antonio Galloni

2013 CrossBarn Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County

90 pts. - Vinous
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon CrossBarn is gorgeous. Black cherry, plum, graphite, lavender, smoke, licorice and creme de cassis abound in a plum, expressive wine that offers plenty of fruit intensity allied to minerality and bright acidity. The Sonoma Cabernet incorporates a good bit of fruit from Moon Mountain, one of the most pedigreed regions within the broaded Sonoma appellation. Dollops of Merlot and Cabernet Franc round out the blend. - Antonio Galloni


2013 CrossBarn Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

93 pts. - James Suckling
This is a fantastic example of the super 2013 vintage in Napa. Full body, currants, graphite, spice, and light chocolate. The lenght and balance to this is superb. Don't miss it. Drink or hold. - James Suckling


2013 CrossBarn Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley

90 pts. - Vinous
Sweet floral and spice notes open up first, followed by a blast of expressive red stone fruit. The tannins need time to soften, but this is a serious wine as well as a solid value for Napa Valley. Rose petal, raspberry jam, mocha and chalk linger on the powerful finish. The finished blend incorporates small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. - Antonio Galloni
