This Pinot noir has aromas of ripe red raspberry and black cherry with a broad cedar and rose notes leaving the impression of sensual beauty. The nose is especially vibrant and seductive for Freedom Hill at this young age. The palate immediately reveals its broad and rich tannin structure with juicy acidity, loads of black cherry flavors, a clay-like minerality and layers of earthy spice. This is a very big and broad Pinot noir that still has focus and clarity.

Wine EnthusiastLushly scented with fresh-cut wood, red berries, cherries and toasted coconut, this delicately entwines the flavors that follow. It's a gentle, lovely, graceful and low-alcohol beauty that should continue to drink well into the mid-2020's. Editor's Choice.

VinousBrilliant red. Assertively perfumed scents of black raspberry and cherry compote, with hints of vanilla, cola and rose emerging with air. Juicy and lively on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors along with suggestions of cola and spicecake. The smooth, sweet finish shows mounting tannins and an echoing floral pastille quality.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard was picked after the rains in September, though not too late since it can accumulate sugar rapidly. The nose is fresh and sorbet-like with blood orange tincturing the red cherry and strawberry fruit. There is something a little playful about this nose. The palate is medium-bodied with a little chewiness on the entry. The tannins are not quite as fine as other single vineyard offerings from St. Innocent, although there is plenty of substance towards the stocky finish that has a pleasing salinity.
