Joseph Phelps Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir opens with jammy red fruit and freshly picked strawberries followed by tangy Bing cherry, raspberry and baking spice notes. A balanced, youthfully focused wine that finishes with white pepper spice and hints of tangerine peel. A complex, textural Pinot Noir that offers aromas of cherry, raspberry, anise and tea leaves, along with a tangerine brightness that expresses the wine’s coastal origins. The palate is generous yet finely structured, with good capacity to age.

Joseph Phelps Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir 2017

100% estate-grown Pinot Noir from our Freestone Vineyards (51% Quarter Moon Vineyard and 49% Pastorale Vineyard).PPELLATION Sonoma Coast AGING/COOPERAGE 13 months in 34% new and 66% two-year-old French oak barrels. WINEMAKING DATA Grapes were picked under lights and sorted before being gravity fed to tank for a long natural fermentation using an overall average of 20% whole clusters in the final blend. Regular punch downs resulted in a structured wine with silken texture and a distinctive Freestone spice character prevalent in this area of the western Sonoma Coast. Pinot Noir opens with jammy red fruit and freshly picked strawberries followed by tangy Bing cherry, raspberry and baking spice notes. A balanced, youthfully focused wine that finishes with white pepper spice and hints of tangerine peel.

96 Points & Editors' Choice - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast
This expressive wine impresses in its expanse of savory tension and complexity, with accents of clove and cardamom. It is lightly styled on the palate and shows good integration of oak and polished tannins, filled out by the berry fruit core that offers length and breadth. Editors’ Choice. (Aug. 2019)

92+ Points - Erin Brooks, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, it has a very open, gregarious nose of dried rose petals, potpourri, tree bark, red licorice and ripe red and black fruits with pretty spicy notes of cinnamon stick and clove. Light to medium-bodied, it has good layers of spicy, perfumed fruit in the mouth, with soft, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and spicy. (April 2019)

94 Points - James Suckling
Lots of blueberries, blackberries and slate on the nose. Medium-bodied, integrated and tight. Refined and driven. Drink now or hold. (May 2019)
