TASTE
A complex, textural Pinot Noir that offers aromas of cherry, raspberry, anise and tea leaves, along with a tangerine brightness that expresses the wine’s coastal origins. The palate is generous yet finely structured, with good capacity to age.

PRODUCER
Founded in 1973 by the eponymous Joseph Phelps, this winery is one of the true Napa Valley pioneers, and has set a quality benchmark for Napa ever since its inception. Following a period of expansion and diversification, Joseph Phelps is now concentrating purely on Bordeaux and Burgundy varieties – plus Scheurebe! The production has been scaled back to the point where all the fruit comes from estate vineyards, which is something of a rarity in California. This is now a brilliantly focused, dynamic producer that refuses to rest on its laurels.

VINEYARD
The Freestone vineyards lie between the Russian River Valley and the Pacific coast, five to eight miles from the latter. At five hundred feet above sea level, they are above the fog line, and coastal breezes help drive off any residual morning moisture. The climate is cool but sunny, with a long growing season. The harvest took place from late September to mid- October.

WINERY
The wine was fermented with a small percentage of whole clusters, and minimal pigeage, then aged for fourteen months in French oak barriques, with forty percent new oak.
