Joseph Phelps Vineyards Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir 2014

$54.99

 92 Points Parker                          Fantastic new Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir release from the legendary Joseph Phelps.  92 Points Robert Parker:  "More raspberries, floral notes, herbs and underbrush appear in the more complex, still not bottled 2014 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard. This is a delicious wine, where some whole clusters were used, giving the wine an earthy underbrush note, but the raspberry fruit is obvious and jumps from the glass. This should drink nicely in its first 5-7 years of life... ...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."

Excellent depth. Not heavy but well extracted showing blackberry, earth and a light mushroom character.

First post in awhile. The fam and I evacuated from the fires a few days ago. The good news is that the house is still standing (at least for now) and we are safe!! Let's drink wine...This wine was a good find at the little grocery store in town. Dark fruited and silky. Slight cough medicine thing I often get in domestic Pinot. Hit the spot.
