    April 13, 2016 - Very open and accessible despite no decant. Rich, multi-layered fruit and solid structure. This is complex yet easy to quaff too quickly.

    November 1, 2015 - Rich and full-bodied, with developed flavors of cherry, strawberry, and blackberry, with hint of red pepper and vanilla. Lovely balance and finish.

    September 6, 2015 - Still drinking well with lots of structure and fruit. We enjoyed the tobacco notes and spice under the strawberry and cherry notes.

    February 24, 2015 - Very rich and well balanced. Black fruit, cherry, cedar, and mineral notes. Should age well for several years.

    April 11, 2014 - Totally bummed that this was the last bottle we have in our cellar. This is such a yummy wine. It was great sipping by itself, but was off the hook with the Rudy's brisket that we had shipped in from Texas. AWESOME! I have found that pinots sourced from Freestone just have this wonderful and consistent marriage of big, explosive fruitiness with nice, bracing acidity (the acidity makes them great for pairing with a wide range of foods). Well done, Lynmar! BTW this wine is completely at its peak, and I would drink now, because no telling when it might start to flatten out.
