Frei Brothers Reserve Pinot Noir 2013


SKU 95156


Our Pinot Noir grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, to retain a significant portion of whole berries for fermentation. After a two-day cold soak, fermentation began giving the wine a breadth and depth of aromas and flavors. Following malolactic fermentation, this Pinot Noir wine was aged for 10 months in a combination of French, Hungarian and American oak barrels.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Pinot Noir Russian River is aged in about 15% new French and American oak and the rest in neutral wood. The wine shows earthy, herbal, herbaceously-tinged, black cherry fruit, baking spices and earth as well as a relatively round, easygoing mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next several years.
