Winemaker Notes

This wine shows off blackberry, roasted tea and fennel scents from its subtle nose. The palate is probably the fullest on a Freeman Sonoma Coast since the 2003. There are plenty of chewy tannins which surround a mouthful of rich fruit and a long finish.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
A beautiful Pinot that perfectly captures the cool coastal California interpretation of the variety's essence. The texture is light and airy, like drinking a cloud. But the flavors are powerful and complex, stunning the palate with the most intense flavors of cherries, raspberries, root beer, vanilla, cloves, cinnamon and smoky oak. Hard to imagine anyone not falling in love with this lilting Pinot Noir.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
The most complex and complete of the 2006 Freemans, this is fragrant, with wilted rose petal, blackberry and wild berry and hints of loamy earth. Both supple and firm on the finish.

Freeman , California
Freeman Vineyard & Winery is the fruition of a 20-year dream shared by Ken and Akiko Freeman to craft elegant cool climate California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a sophisticated, Burgundian style. Together the Freemans carefully selected vineyards from some of Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coasts acclaimed sites to create elegant and balanced wines. Their first vintage was in 2002 and since then, they have continued their blending philosophy and have added a single vineyard wine with Keefer Estate. In 2008, the Freemans planted vineyards at a site in Occidental called Freeman Ranch, which is dry-farmed and organic. They purchased the 50-acre site in 2007; and donated 24 acres of redwood forest to the Bodega Bay Land Trust with 16 acres planted to Pinot Noir for their estate.

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
