$70.00 $49.99 $49.99

Joseph Phelps Vineyards produced Napa Valley Pinot Noir from 1973-1983, but Joe was never quite pleased with the style, so he headed further West to find a more suitable location on the Sonoma Coast. Considered too cold for grape growing, Freestone had very few planted vineyards in the late 1990s, but the Goldridge soils were enough for the Phelps family to take a bet, purchasing their first vineyard in the area in 1999.

The vineyard team spent five years adapting to farming in a completely different environment, putting meticulous efforts into the proper clonal selection, effective pruning, training, and trellising methods before finally harvesting the first crop. As in Napa, Joseph Phelps Vineyards places utmost importance on their exceptional quality, so in 2007 the Freestone Winery was built to vinify their Sonoma Coast fruit on-site and maintain the extraordinary level of craftsmanship recognized worldwide.

Description

2019 JOSEPH PHELPS FREESTONE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

The 2019 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyards takes time to open, metamorphosing from iron and woodsmoke to raspberries, dried flowers, dark spices and aniseed. The medium-bodied palate is silky and seamlessly fresh, loaded with perfectly ripe, earth-laced fruits whose flavors linger for a very long time in the mouth. This has the fruit intensity and structure to age very well in bottle.”

“Blueberry and spice with lightly toasted notes and some nuts. Full, yet very tight, with refined tannins and polish. Linear and long. Intense and vivid. A beauty. This needs time to open. Try after 2022.”
95 Points
Lastly, the 2019 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyards reveals a medium ruby, semi-opaque hue to go with stunning notes of ripe black cherries, black tea, spice, and a distinct, racy, reductive, mineral nuance that builds with time in the glass. Beautifully textured, nicely structured, and balanced, it’s going to cruise for 5-7 years, if not over a decade, in cold cellars.”
94 Points
Savory forest-floor tones contrast well against crisp, focused flavors of blood orange, pomegranate and cherry. With length and breadth, it is structured yet expansive, with and immensely delicious palate.”
