Freeman Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Keefer Ranch 2009
Editorial Reviews for Freeman Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Keefer Ranch
This just smells gorgeous, all classically pinot-y fruit, a little musk, some lovely damp forest floor notes, fresh cherries and raspberries, some smoke a hint of cola and a gentle lashing of softly ashy, charry wood. Rich and soft on entry, this has gentle tannins with excellent acidity that adds wonderful vibrance to the pure, elegant dark cherry fruit. There’s a touch of vanilla on the back end here but it just adds another nuance to the lovely finish. Really has some strong cherry fruit on the finish with a touch of espresso foam. 92pts
The aromatics are lovely - purple flowers, spicebox, black fruits. Great spice to balance out the fruit on the palate, with bitter earth notes to round it out. Flavors have a lot of room to develop.

A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2009 Freeman Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 750ml
Bright red. Deeper and darker in character than the Sonoma Coast bottling, displaying black raspberry, cherry pit and sassafras aromas and flavors. Round and palate-coating, with very good depth and surprising back-end energy. Finishes smooth, sap... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
