AG 93 WA (90-92) Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "Dark red cherries, tobacco and new leather wrap around the palate in the 2012 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard. A wine of presence and nuance, the 2012 stands out for its symmetry and overall sense of balance. I very much like the delineation and energy here. The Freestone is a blend of fruit from Quarter Moon (60%) and Pastorale (40%). It shows beautifully next to those wines, despite a significant difference in price. This is the hidden jewel in the range, there is little doubt about that."
According to Robert Parker - The 2012 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard achieved 14.3% alcohol. Its saturated dark ruby color is followed by abundant notes of Asian spices, strawberries, cherries, a hint of underbrush and a medium-bodied, rich mouthfeel with good acidity, but no oak poking through. Consume it over the next 5-7 years. 14.5% ABV.
