95 points - Jeb Dunnuck
Pinot Noir, Cleary Estate, Sonoma Coast
This vineyard-designate from a hilltop overlooking the town of Freestone was first released three years ago and continues to impress with each vintage. An opulent deep ruby and wave of black raspberries, summer fig aromas are accented by a hint of spearmint and garden-fresh rosemary. The palate is refined and welcoming with a firm backbone of cherry complemented with savory notes of sandalwood, anise, and a graphite minerality. Svelte tannins lead to a polished finish that integrates flawlessly with its inherent coastal acidity.
