Slightly richer and longer than the regular Freestone bottling in 2008. The fruit reminded me more of a full-flavored Green Valley Pinot than Freestone's usual crunchy, cranberry-infused style. Elegant and smooth as silk, lovely, smoky dark cherry and raspberry fruit. Gorgeous Pinot, probably my favorite of all the 2008 Pinot's I've tried to date. - HK 2014-12-25
