Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard was aged for 16 months in 30% new French oak. Dark ruby-colored, the enticing bouquet exhibits spice notes, pomegranate, and assorted black fruits. On the palate, earth notes and cola make an appearance. Nicely structured with good depth, concentration, and balance, it should evolve for 2-3 years and drink well through 2020. "
91 Points

"Vivid red. Candied cherry and dark berries on the nose, with complicating floral and smoky mineral qualities adding complexity. Sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors are braced by tangy minerals and pick up a deeper cola note with air. Expands in the glass, gaining a spiciness that carries through the ripe, juicy finish. This would work well with Moroccan-spiced lamb or duck."
