93 POINTS! James Suckling, 2016 vintage
"Linear and lean with wonderful freshness and crispness. Lots of lemon rind and citrus character with hints of stone and mango. Medium body, crisp and delicious. Minerality, sea salt undertone. Even gunpowder. Serious white for the money. Screw cap. Drink now."
92 POINTS! James Suckling, 2015 vintage
"Aromas of sliced apple, lemon rind and stone follow through to a medium to full body, bright acidity and a long and fresh finish. Refined and delicious. Drink now."
92 POINTS! Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, 2014 vintage
"The less expensive label for Paul Hobbs is his Crossbarn label. He has done a magnificent job of elevating the quality of these wines, which are all made from purchased fruit. Take, for example, the Crossbarn 2014 Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast. There are over 16,000 cases of this wine, which is bone-dry. Ten percent is barrel-fermented, and the rest aged in steel, so it is essentially a naked style of Chardonnay, and the 2014 is just a beauty, with crisp acidity, notes of apple blossom, tangerine oil and honeyed lemons in an extroverted, beautifully pure and natural style. This is delicious, and a terrific value in Chardonnay to drink over the next few years."
