*One Star*Ever so slightly broader and a bit riper in tone than its partner from the Russian River Valley, Freeman's Sonoma Coast bottling is nicely filled out and similarly sports a full complement of very vital young fruit. It is by a small measure the fleshier and more frontal wine of the two, but despite its considerable fruity charms, it is also a Pinot that wants keeping and its best lies a few years down the line.
Vivid red. Lively, sharply focused aromas of redcurrant, blood orange and minerals, with a smoky quality emerging with air. Tangy and linear on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of zesty spiciness. Fat-free and nervy on the finish, with echoing notes of blood orange and minerals. I'd bet on this youthful wine to age gracefully.
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.
The 2012 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast exhibits a darker ruby color as well as denser fruit, elevated ripeness and lots of plum, black cherries and spice box characteristics. This complex, Burgundian-styled effort is more textured and longer than its 2011 counterpart. It should age nicely for 5-7 years. (RP)
Freeman's 2012 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is juicy, open and expressive. Sweet red berries, tobacco, mint and wild flowers open up in the glass, while ripe, silky tannins support the perfumed, striking finish. All the elements fall into place very nicely in the 2012. This is a gorgeous, succulent Pinot to drink over the next handful of years.
