Freestone Pinot Noir Jp 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This Pinot Noir is a selection of the best wines produced during the 2006 harvest. We selected the groups with the best balance of tannin, flavor concentration, aroma and acidity. The resulting blend offers hints of sandalwood, wild blackberry and balsamic reduction, dried tea leaves, and a mélange of Indian spices. This wine is serious, yet restrained, and has a backbone of natural acidity, tannin and minerality to provide the structure necessary for aging.

Cherry, moss and smoky-earthy aromas. Nice tannin with red cherry flavors mixed with earthy component. Medium tannins and nice long finish.

Nice wine from Freestone (Jo Phelps). Cherry and rose petals on the nose. Taste was red cherry but was mild. I am assuming like the 2005 this will be much better in about 6 months.

Light red in color with a very even color all the way to center. Scents of berries and a hint of the forest floor. Sour cherries and well balanced that lingers for several minutes. Subtle yet tingly acidity that dances around the mouth. Very nice wine.

Showing an alluring medium ruby-crimson color in the glass, this suave Sonoma Coast Pinot features bright and candied dark red raspberry and black cherry on the nose with hints sage, spice, flowers and dusty earth. The palate is pure and vibrant revealing flavors of spiced red fruits, licorice and earth framed in a well-balanced, silky structure highlighted by bright acidity. An impressive and luxurious effort, this Pinot is drinking beautifully now and will for the next 3-4 years.
