Sonoma Coast - "The 2013 Pinot Noir opens with aromatic red cherry and raspberry along with savory spices, fresh cut herbs and floral notes. Expressive red plum, currants and cranberries dominate the palate followed by white pepper and lasting Freestone spice elements. Beautifully textured with balanced acid and tannin leading to a long sweet vanilla finish."


WE 93 W&S 91 Vinous (89-91) WA 88 Pts - Wine Enthusiast - "Stemmy earth and dark, savory pine give in to sautéed mushroom and cinnamon in this lean, soft and delicious estate-grown wine. A tension of acidity buoys a backdrop of wild strawberry and cranberry on the palate, ending with just the right amount of weight and length, succulent to the end."

According to Wine & Spirits - "Joseph Phelps made a significant bet on coastal pinot noir and chardonnay in 1999, stepping outside of Napa to develop 100 acres of vineyards in the fog-cooled hills near Freestone. Those vines now grow a polished and silky pinot, with sunny fruit sweetness that suggests candied cherries. Savory scents of vineyard dust and tea leaves contrast that juicy fruit, while citrusy acidity gives it a toned edge."

According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2013 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard is soft, silky and nicely perfumed in the glass. Savory herbs, mint, anise and dark cherries add nuance in a precise yet understated Pinot that will drink well pretty much upon release. I tasted the 2013 from tank just before bottling."

According to Robert Parker - "The 2013 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard is a blend from their estate vineyards Pastorale and Quarter Moon. This is treated similarly to the Chardonnay, with 13 months in one-third new French oak prior to being bottled. The wine shows delicate strawberry, pomegranate, and red and black cherry notes, a touch of plums, loamy soil nuances, a nice, juicy, medium-bodied mouthfeel and a good, fresh, ripe finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years." 13.5% ABV.
