Product Description

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.
