St. Innocent Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018


Sold Out

Alcohol: 13.5%

Grape(s): Pinot Noir

Localization: Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA

Tasting Notes: The Freedom Hill is deep ruby-red color. It has a spice-driven nose with dark cherry, plum, and white pepper. The mouth is an explosion of dark fruits punctuated by bright acidity followed by sweet, savory spices, smoky oak, and rich fruit tannins. This big wine will enjoy some time in the glass and hearty dishes. It should also age beautifully.

Food Pairing: Pair this wine alongside richly flavored red meat entrees like steak, roast beef, duck, and leg of lamb.

The Domain: Freedom Hill Vineyard is located in the foothills of the Coast Range, 10 miles SW of Salem, Oregon. During the day warm air rises from the valley floor ripening the skins. At night, cool ocean breezes act to retain acidity. Planted on old sedimentary soils, the vines have a SW exposure at an elevation of 520’ to 580’. Our Pinot noir comes from two blocks, one planted in 2004 with Pommard and Wädenswil and one planted in 2008 with 777.
