Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Crossbarn opens with a fragrant pomegranate and graphite bouquet with a hint of rhubarb. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is loam and black plum blend with notes of rhubarb and graphite. I also detected some hints of black cherry and pomegranate mixed in. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This wine benefits from a little aeration, as it got better with time. So, I would decant it briefly before serving it with coq au vin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vibrant ruby in color, this vintage is bursting with bright red fruit aromas of cranberry and cherry, with hints of bergamot, winter spice and cinnamon. Elegantly layered notes of mulberry, raspberry and a kiss of pine create a harmonious and textured palate accented by a delicate acidity and a subtle salinity, which evocates characteristics of the Sonoma Coast. Pair with a pizza with sausage and mushrooms.
