Winemaker Notes: “The 2018 Freestone-Occidental wine shares the same winemaking techniques as our vineyard designated pinot noirs. The 2018 Freestone-Occidental offers a superb balance of bright, primary red fruits and saline elements. It conveys outstanding energy, precision and lift in the mouth and finishes vibrant and long with beautifully sculpted tannins. Its modest alcohol (13.5%) makes this wine a perfect complement to any meal. It is delicious now and will develop nicely in bottle.”
