Outstandingly rich and satisfying Pinot Noir, definitely a step above the also excellent 2009 Freestone bottling. Deep dark Pinot fruit with a crunchy cranberry-like edge, as well as complex spicy and cola notes. Beautifully balanced in the mouth and finish, lots of finesse and elegance to accompany the depth and authority of the flavors. Expensive but worth it for the right occasion. - HK 2016-03-22
