An excellent 2010, this has definitely improved over its already excellent showing a year ago. The usual mouth-tingling Sonoma Coast freshness and the usual Freestone Hill layers of ripe Pinot fruit. Black cherry, concentrated strawberry, and cranberry/blueberry notes fill the mouth and linger in the finish. Cinnamon and nutmeg spiciness. Beautifully balanced and elegant yet full of flavor. This wine has come into its drinkability peak and should hang in there for at least three more years. - HK 2016-02-09
