Joseph Phelps – Pinot Noir 2013 – Estate Grown – Freestone Vineyards – Sonoma

(51% Quarter Moon Vineyard and 49% Pastorale Vineyard) The nose is fruity and fresh. It reveals notes of cherry and slight notes of strawberry associated with fine notes of flowers, slight notes of oak, spices and a slight earthy note. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral, fat and offers a nice acid frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of cherry and slight notes of black cherry associated with slight notes of blackberry, a touch of fig, cranberries as well as slight woody notes and toasted coconut on the finish. Tannins are fine and silky. Good length.
