2017 SCV Pinot Noir, Freestone Hills, 750ml

2017 Pinot Noir
Freestone Hills, Sonoma Coast


$40.00   per 750ml bottle


Tasting Notes
Densely colored with intense aromas of luscious black cherry, forest floor and hints of baking spice that emerge from the glass. Its elegant mouth-filling texture nicely balances fresh acidity and silky-smooth tannins.

Vineyard Notes
As Freestone Hills Vineyard is planted to Dijon 115, 667 and 777 Clones, this vineyard is a study in contrasts. The later ripening Dijon Clone 667 offers characteristic notes of red cherry, tart raspberry, refreshing acidity and lift across the broad palate. Clone 115 affords a dusty nose and hints of earthiness and spice, while Clone 777 affords structure and dark fruit character. Combined, these three clones layer complexity and verve into the finished wine.

Vintage Notes
2017 was another near perfect growing season with idyllic weather throughout the year. Given the region’s geography and typically cooler climate—due to a nightly fog layer—grapes tend to ripen slower and develop a certain characteristic acid structure while maintaining lovely and ripe red fruit flavors.
