2009 Freeman Vineyard & Winery Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, CA, $45 (S) – Rating 92
This blend of five Sonoma Coast vineyards by Freeman Winery offers up a restrained yet robust Pinot Noir. Patience and decanting will be rewarded with a delicious Pinot that opens with flavors of blue fruit, cherry, dark berries, spice and bramble. As the wine opens, more delicate and interesting flavors of rose, black tea, minerality and pepper add to the complexity. A very artfully constructed wine.
