Freedon Hill is always a powerhouse Pinot. It is consistently our most structured Pinot noir, and the one with the greatest aging potential. The flavor profile is dominated by red and black cherries, dusty earth, anise and mint.
Wine & Spirits(2006 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 06/09. This wine, from one of the Willamette Valley's older vineyards in Oregon's Coast Range, is showing plenty of fresh black cherry aromas. There's also generous, chocolatey oak that firms it up with warm tannins. Still youthful and a bit unsettled; a year in the cellar should give it more definition.
