94 points, Editors' Choice Wine Enthusiast: "Built upon 20 year-old Pommard vines, this opens with scents of plum, cocoa and cinnamon. Its rich and varied palate mixes cherries, plums and baking spices with a dash of fresh ground coffee. The length, detail and overall balance are exemplary."
Haden Fig typically shows the the darker fruited, more boisterous side of Erin Nuccio's winemaking compared to his Evesham Wood Pinot noirs. This Freedom Hill vineyard designate is a prime example: dark, energetic raspberry and black cherry with a touch of fresh-tilled earth. Its acidity and back-end structure work excellently with food–it was an excellent partner to cassoulet on a recent chilly evening.
The third vintage of Freedom Hill from Haden Fig, showcasing the small 2 acre parcel of 23 year-old Pommard clone. This bottle is about ripe morello cherry, and raspberry preserves and extends a firm grip to the finish. Delicious.
