Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a red currant bouquet with a hint of strawberry and mild oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is an elegant plum and red currant blend with notes of black raspberry and nicely integrated old oak. I also detected dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its mild old oak tannins are slightly prolonged. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair well with fig and blue cheese stuffed pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This complex and lively Pinot Noir exhibits aromas of juicy black cherry and balsamic reduction, hints of anise, cassis, dried tea leaves, sweet tobacco and savory, simmering curry spices all enveloped within Freestone's characteristic essence of tangerine zest. The offerings on the palate are both generous and lingering, while hinting at the season’s cool, steady growing season with flavors of freshly ground allspice, sauteed Chanterelles and plump, red cherries. The earthiness is subtle yet captivating, and the finish is long and seamless. This Pinot Noir is rich, vibrant and has an energy that will keep it alive for many years.
