Joseph Phelps Vineyards Freestone Pinot Noir 2019 Review

This winery is in love with both Napa and Sonoma. They see the potential for magic on both sides of the mountain. In Sonoma they acquired Freestone in 1999, fulfilling a Pinot dream. And we get to enjoy the fruits of their labor in this wonderful wine. It has high-ish alcohol but doesn't overwhelm. The nose is awash in good cherry cola and calm oak flavors. The palate has good natural acidity to balance the core of the fruit that wants to concentrate. This is a well-balanced wine.
