Freeman Vineyard ‘Yu-Ki Estate’ Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes
Technical Details

The Yu-ki Estate Pinot Noir has aromas of brambly wild huckleberries, wet earth, forest floor, molasses, and chanterelle mushrooms. The palate is a seamless blend of perfectly ripe fruit flavors, moderate tannins, and refreshing acidity. Each year that the Yu-ki vineyard matures, the flavors get more complex, and the palate gets more structured.

The Estate

Ken and Akiko bought the land for Yu-ki Estate in 2007 and planted our favorite heritage and Dijon clones of Pinot Noir there. The location is only five miles from the Pacific Ocean, 1,000 feet in elevation, above the town of Occidental.

Wine Making

The growing season was actually very similar to 2018, and the winter rainfall was much more plentiful in 2019. If there were ever two back to back years of ideal weather for ripening Pinot Noir, these were the two.

Food Suggestions

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