Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Freeman Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is among the darker hues of this wine seen over the years. The nose is subtle, spicy, fragrant, complex and intriguing. There is high acidity on the palate, however the fruit ripeness of this vintage is pronounced and carries a great balance into the finish. The flavors are an interesting mix of cola nut, black currants, tart plums and some oak. This wine should be at its best from 2015 through 2024.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast reveals a dark, healthy plum/ruby color, and beautifully textured notes of forest floor, autumnal vegetation, plum sauce, black cherries and spice. It is an attractive, sexy, round, well-endowed Pinot to drink over the next 5-6 years.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This wine is rich and ripe, oozing with black cherry, boysenberry and strawberry jam aromas and flavors. It feels full and rather soft on the palate, as the acidity and tannins appear very mild.

Freeman   Winery Video
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.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
