  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    (vinified with 30% whole clusters, down a bit from the previous vintage): Good full red. Perfumed, high-toned aromas of red and dark berries, pungent spicy oak and flowers. Youthfully tight and not showing its flesh today, with a peppery quality contributing to the wine's juiciness and impression of structure. Still a bit edgy on the finish and in need of another year or two of bottle aging.

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyards bursts from the glass with an exciting array of sweet black cherries, herbs, dried flowers, licorice and tar, all supported by lively minerality. This focused, beautifully delineated Pinot is first-class all the way. The Freestone bottling is 53% Pastorale Vineyard and 47% Quarter Moon Vineyard.

Since its founding in 1972, Joseph Phelps Vineyards has been on the cutting edge of many California wine developments. From the Bordeaux-blend Insignia, first made in 1974 and Wine Spectator's wine of the year for the 2002 vintage; to the resurrection of California Syrah, also first produced in 1974, the winery has earned critical acclaim for its many estate-grown wines.
