Joseph Phelps – Pinot Noir 2013 Freestone Vineyards – Sonoma Coast

The nose is fruity, relatively gourmand and offers juiciness. It reveals notes of fleshy cherries, of Quetsche plum and a touch of sour cherry associated with a discreet hint of fig. The palate is fruity, suave, gourmand, a bit silky and offers fat, a good structure and juiciness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cherry, plum, juicy cassis and fine touches of strawberry associated with a discreet touch of flowers as well as a discreet hint of Ceylon Tea and a fine hint of saline minerality. Tannins are well-built and integrated. Good length.
