Producer notes: "The fruit in this Pinot Noir is a from our Bodega Headlands, Occidental Station, and Bodega Ridge vineyards. All fruit is harvested at night and arrives cool at the winery the next morning, where it is carefully sorted twice. Each vineyard block is fermented separately in 2-4-ton increments in order to capture as much individual site character as possible. Native yeast alcoholic fermentation as well as native malolactic fermentation. The wine goes into bottle after 14 months in barrel, unfined and unfiltered, with a minimum level of SO2.

The 2022 Freestone-Occidental wine shares the same winemaking techniques as our vineyard designated pinot noirs. Crystalline, bright, mouthwatering, and a bit salty with a saline mineral finish, the 2022 Freestone-Occidental evokes juicy red berries and a near perfect balance of finesse and energy – of bright, primary red fruits and saline elements. It conveys outstanding precision and lift in the mouth and finishes vibrant and long with beautifully sculpted tannins. Its modest alcohol (13.3%) makes this wine a perfect complement to any meal. It is delicious now and will develop nicely in bottle."
