Tasting Notes

Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Noirs are among the most established bottlings in the state with well over two decades of incredible wines. They lean towards a dark fruit profile that has sappy, dry extract to spare, a luxurious nature to the texture and no shortage of tannins to keep everything pulled in. Best examples age remarkably well. 


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93pts - The 2014 Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard Dijon 115 is the same composition as the 2013, but with one-third new oak. It has an appealing bouquet with dark berry fruit, bell pepper and touches of brine, something very marine-like coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with that bell pepper note coming through on the entry from the stem addition, lending a Loire-like character to this Pinot Noir. I appreciate the tension here, a rather uncompromising, yet compelling Pinot Noir with wonderful salinity towards the finish. Intellectual as well as sensorial, afford this 2-3 years in your cellar.

About the Winery

The entire winery is dedicated fully and solely to displaying the nature of Pinot Noir that is derived from where it is grown. In each vineyard a unique combination of geology, topography, elevation, aspect to the sun, degree of slope, type of water, age of vine, clonal material, flora and fauna that come together to make up the concept that is referred to as terroir.  All our vineyards are either organically or sustainably farmed  to produce textures, aromatics and flavors that are specific to the site from which they are born.  Our goal is to work with unique vineyards that have wide ranging natures so that we can showcase a broad range of Oregon Pinot Noir capabilities.
