Joseph Phelps Freestone Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir California Red Wine 750mL


James Suckling 95 rating for 2021 vintage
Lovely energy to this with lavender and rose petal with strawberries and raspberries. Slate and stone undertones. Minerality. Seaweed. Medium- to full-bodied with creamy tannin’s. Fine texture. Fresh at the end. Tension in the finish. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast 93 rating for 2021 vintage
A rich mouthfeel and well-ripened fruit flavors give this fullbodied wine a friendly, generous expression, while modest tannins add a touch of grip to balance things out. Accented with an array of oak spices, the wine is easy to love.

“The venerable Joseph Phelps Vineyards Napa facility has undergone a complete facelift and renovation. They started their Sonoma Coast Freestone project in 1998, and it’s hard to believe it’s nearly 17 years of age. They are making some very Burgundian, cool-climate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from sites they own, and the wines merit considerable attention. Most of the Chardonnay vineyards are planted with the Old Wente selection, along with some of the newer Dijon clonal material. With the Pinot Noir, it is both California clones and Dijon clones.” – Robert Parker Jr.
