Sonoma Coast

$65.00 per Bottle


2 Bottles




"The 2016 Pinot Noir (Freestone Occidental) is a very pretty wine. Expressive floral and savory notes lead into a core of bright red-toned fruits. Silky and medium in body, with lovely aromatic presence, the 2016 is absolutely gorgeous today. The 2016 was done with just a touch of whole clusters (10%), and yet remains quite savory in style. The 2016 spent eleven months in barrel and a few months in tank prior to being bottled in November 2017." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Such perfume! Fearsomely powerful, with red fruit that matches all the smoky impact of the oak. Chalky tannins, bright acidity, enough flesh to balance the structure and an overall impression of power that really needs longer to express itself fully." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
