Freeman Russian River Pinot Noir 2019 750ml
After the spectacular 2018 vintage, we had no idea what to expect in 2019. The weather during May ﬂowering was hit-and-miss, with its share of cool, foggy and windy days. As soon as June arrived, everything changed for the better; for the second summer in a row, we experienced a perfect growing season. Mild heat spells were followed by predictable foggy evenings and mornings, along with bright, sunny and mild afternoons. We harvested all of the fruit in September under ideal conditions, with nothing coming in too early, and nothing overripe. This is how Pinot in the Russian River Valley was meant to be!
Freeman’s Gloria Estate Vineyard contributed the largest share of fruit to the 2019 Russian River Valley blend. Four of the vineyard’s main Pinot blocks are represented in the wine, including Calera, Swan, Pommard and 115. This was Gloria’s 9th vintage, and the vineyard is now approaching full maturity.
The 2019 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir shows a youthful, bright, deep black cherry color in the glass. With an intriguing nose of rhubarb, blackberries, wild mushrooms, and wet earth, this wine holds a lot in store for the future. The enticing palate of full fruit ﬂavors and a hint of reduction also predict a long life, with berries and high acidity rounding out the long ﬁnish. The RRV Pinot should be approaching maturity by the end of 2021 and last through 2030.
