Freestone Pinot Noir 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright cherry, cranberry, currant and sweet baking spice aromas leap from the glass followed by notes of blackberry, white pepper, cassis and rose petals. A rich, full mouth feel paves the way for concentrated raspberry, Bing cherry, allspice and vanilla flavors along with Freestone's characteristic tangerine peel. Balanced acidity and tannins create an alluring Pinot Noir with a long, lush finish.

The parts haven’t fully come together yet in this ageable wine. It has mouthwatering acidity and vastly complex flavors, ranging from ripe heirloom tomatoes, cola, pomegranates and cranberries, to ripe cherries and red currants. With flavors of oak and some hard tannins, it’s a natural for the cellar. Hold for at least six years.

The 2011 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard is a 3,400-case cuvee aged 13 months in 40% new French oak. The alcohol achieved a modest 13.5%. Made totally from Dijon clonal material, it exhibits notes of strawberries, raspberries, tobacco leaf and lavender. Nicely structured and medium-bodied with good density and fruit as well as a slightly compact finish, it can be consumed over the next 4–5 years.

Offering aromas of light sour cherry and crushed rock, this medium-weight, sleek and minerally version fades on the slightly clipped finish. Drink now through 2020.

Bright medium red. Red berries, pungent brown spices, black tea and flowers on the nose, accented by peppery herbs. At once ripe and dry, offering moderate depth and complexity but excellent energy to the red fruit and spice flavors. There are more than 3,300 cases of this very good entry-level pinot.
