VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI)The 2015 Pinot Noir Pastorale Vineyard is the most savory of the three Pinots in this range, and also the brightest. Striking scents of rose petal, mint, blood orange, sweet red cherry and pomegranate give the wine much of its distinctive personality. The 25% whole clusters add aromatic nuance and lift in one of the many strands that define this super-expressive Pinot Noir from Joseph Phelps.
ROBERT PARKERHaving seen 19% whole cluster, the 2015 Pinot Noir Freestone Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color and nose of red cherries and black raspberries with hints of wild thyme, forest floor, lavender and moss. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and finely grained, with intense earth and red berry flavors, as well as a long finish.
