2016 Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard 1.5L
11 In Stock
The 2016 Freedom Hill is dark, almost opaque ruby red. The typical dark cherry and wet clay aromas are especially broad and complex. The palate is quite lively with concentrated fruits, dark flowers, roasted squash and hints of citrus peel. With all of the power on the palate, its finish is still fresh, bright, and clean. A beautiful vintage for enjoying now or into the future.

Freedom Hill Vineyard is located in the foothills of the Coast Range, 10 miles SW of Salem, Oregon. During the day warm air rises from the valley floor ripening the skins. At night, cool ocean breezes act to retain acidity. Planted on old sedimentary soils, the vines have a SW exposure at an elevation of 520’ to 580’. Our Pinot noir comes from two blocks, one planted in 2004 with Pommard and Wädenswil and one planted in 2008 with 777.
