Tried a 2nd bottle 2 months after first ‘18. Sourced mostly from estate grown vineyards, this bright Ruby Pinot has aromas of red fruits and sweet spices. On the palate flavors of sweet cherry, plum and raspberry with underlying crispness, adding in some citrus and vanilla, rich in the mouth. Fine tannins, long finish, well balanced complex vibrant ending. Very Nice! Fruit will mellow with age, I’ll try again in 6 months!

Bang! This is a really delightful Pinot from the Freestone vineyard. Located just west of Santa Rosa and bordering Occidental. 2018. Seductive nose, crushed violets as far as the eye can see.
