This is the first bottle we opened from this vintage. Totally approachable and delicious. Freeman I has become one of our favorite CA Pinot noir vintners.

Almost vegetal, but nice to see a restrained Pinot over a cherry bomb.

At 8yrs old, showing super fresh fruit, bright acidity and terrific balance. Not the slightest bit tired.

Aging beautifully, expressing high toned fruit, bright acidity and a momentum that persists.

Methinks there's more than a bit of Campbell in this Pinot. Nice.
