Tasting Notes
Technical Details

The color is dark and completely clear to the rim. There’s a combination of spring cherries and bramble fragrances in the nose that intensifies in the glass. The palate is bursting with fruit, but held in check
within a framework of fine acidity and fruit tannin.

The Estate

Gloria is Freeman’s estate vineyard, located adjacent to the winery. Ken and Akiko acquired this site—previously an apple orchard—from a neighbor in 2005 and planted it the following year. They named the vineyard for the orchard’s owner, Gloria, and especially for the fortuitous event that brought Ken and Akiko together in 1985.

Wine Making

Sitting just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the Gloria vineyard is blessed with a steep hillside for optimal drainage, Goldridge sandy loam soils, and a climate that is sunny but unusually cool, moderated by fog. The Freemans planted the 8-acre vineyard to heritage Pinot Noir clones—Swan, Calera and Pommard—along with Dijon 115.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with veal, pork, poultry, and mushrooms.
