Joseph Phelps Vineyards Freestone Pinot Noir 2017, Sonoma Coast, USA
PRESS: Wine Enthusiast - 94 points. "Bright and fragrant in aromas of jasmine and lemon rind, this wine impresses in its textured minerality of wet stone and sea spray. Structured and complex, it shines in a light-bodied approach that never holds back in flavors of apple and pear."
