TASTING NOTES:

Very attractive baking spices and gently toasty oak across ripe raspberries and strawberries with light savory baking spices and bergamot. The palate has a bright crunchy red cherry-berry core. Tannins are succulent and the freshness is alluring. Drink or hold.

- James Suckling, 93pts

Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard leaps from the glass with an intense perfume of violets, redcurrants and black cherries with hints of black pepper, lavender, cinnamon stick and black tea. The palate is medium-bodied and very elegant yet wonderfully intense with a firm frame of fine-grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and fragrant.

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Grapes are picked during the cool pre-dawn hours under lights and sorted before being gravity fed to tank for a long natural fermentation using an overall average of 17% whole clusters in the final blend. Regular punch downs produced a wine with silky texture, elegant structure and a distinctive Freestone spice character prevalent throughout the western edge of the Sonoma Coast. This latest vintage of Pinot Noir has a pleasing bouquet of plum, black currant, baking spices and sweet vanilla. Fresh and focused with silky, textural layers of ripe raspberry, black cherry, dried herbs and tangerine peel culminating in a long, elegant finish.
