The 2013 Freeman Keefer Ranch Pinot Noir has a deep ruby color, and possibly the subtlest nose Freeman has ever produced from Keefer. Given enough air and time, wet earth, rhubarb and cola aromas begin to emerge. The palate is rich, a result of the perfectly ripe 2013 vintage. Abundant, spicy fruit predominates, and beneath that Keefer’s typical bright acidity peeks through.
Robert Parker(2012 Vintage) Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Robert Parker on 12/21/2014
International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Medium red. Smoky, floral-accented raspberry and redcurrant aromas, plus a bright mineral hint. Fresh and focused, with bright red berry flavors, fine-grained tannins and a refreshing suggestion of orange peel on the finish. Nicely balanced, elegant pinot, with impressive purity and finishing persistence.
International Wine Cellar(2009 Vintage) Vivid red. Captivating perfume of raspberry, spicecake, rose and minerals. Very ripe but juicy and bracing, with sweet red berry preserve, mineral and floral pastille flavors supported by a firm spine of minerality. Finishes with excellent focus and spicy, floral persistence.
