We’ve come to expect a darker and more structured Pinot noir from Freedom Hill; suffice it to say this delivers on our expectations. Packed with black and blue fruit, loam and brown spice notes, this young pup will benefit from mid- to longterm cellaring. Ken's familiarity with the vineyard dates back nearly two decades to his time at St. Innocent. - Marcus
2014 vintage notes
93 points Vinous, Josh Raynolds: "Cherry, black raspberry and smoky Indian spices on the deeply perfumed nose, which takes on a pungent floral quality with air. Sappy, concentrated bitter cherry and dark berry flavors show very good depth as well as vivacity thanks to a core of juicy acidity. Distinctly powerful yet lithe, featuring impressive, floral-driven persistence and resonating sweetness."
A more powerful Walter Scott wine, heaping generous black fruits, baking spices and a hint of violets.

Darker and a touch mysterious, heaping buckets of dark cherries and a flash of blood orange and sweet cinnamon. Finishes with structure and rustic elegance. Only 125 cases made, and one of the finest expressions of Freedom Hill to date.
