エレガントでバランスのとれたワインは、産地、インスピレーション、芸術性が交わるところにその本質を見出すことができます。ワインはブドウが育った畑なりの良さにはなりますが、それだけでなく自然の叡智が育まれ、おだやかに際立っていきます。フリーマンでは、すべてのワイン丹念な手作業で少量生産しています。各ヴィンテージ、50ものクローン別の発酵を行い、わずか6アイテムのピノ・ノワールが造られます。冷涼気候のピノ・ノワールとシャルドネのみにフォーカス、全生産量を5,000ケース以下に抑え、すべてのボトリングがこれに値する愛情と注意が注ぎ込まれるようにしています。

Elegant, balanced wines find their essence at the intersection of provenance, inspiration and artistry. Though a wine will only ever be as good as the vineyards it comes from, the wisdom of nature can be nurtured and gently accentuated. At Freeman, every wine is intimately made by hand in small lots. As many as 50 individual clonal fermentations are managed each vintage to make just six Pinot Noirs. The focus is exclusively on cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and total production is kept below 5,000 cases to ensure that every bottling receives the love and attention it deserves.

While these acclaimed, limited-production wines are available in some of the finest restaurants around the world, and in select wine shops across the country, the only other way to acquire them is by becoming a mailing list member.

2020 Gloria Estate Pinot Noir

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. Ken had been on a sailboat heading south in the Atlantic when Hurricane Gloria forced him to spend the night in port. That evening he attended a friend’s party where he met Akiko—the best- dressed and most beautiful woman in the room. The rest, of course, is history.

2020 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Twenty-twenty looked like it would be the third incredible vintage in a row after the prolific and spectacular 2018, and the smaller but equally wonderful 2019. Rainfall in the winter of 2020 was a bit below average and temperatures remained cold well into March, delaying bud break. May brought alternating warm and cold spells, which resulted in slightly below-average flowering and fruit set. Things looked very promising as we got into our normal June-August summer weather pattern.

2020 Ryo-fu Chardonnay

Ryo-fu is Japanese for “cool breeze,” a fitting name for this Russian River Valley Chardonnay shaped by the chilly winds that blow in from the Pacific Ocean. Our local ryo-fu, along with the region’s famous fog and sandy loam soil, create ideal growing conditions for this vineyard.

2019 Yu-ki Estate Blanc de Blancs

Sparkling Wine 20th Anniversary
The 2019 Freeman Yu-ki Estate Blanc de Blancs has a youthful and brilliantly clear appearance. The nose has a note of sweetness, with elements of raw honey, candied lemon, subtle dried pineapple, bread yeast, brioche and intense green apple. The creamy texture has enough crisp acidity to stand up to a variety of foods, but the wine can be enjoyed all by itself. This will age well for quite a few years to come.

2019 Akiko’s Cuvée Pinot Noir

The 2019 Akiko’s Cuvée is the darkest wine of the vintage for Freeman. There’s so much going on with the aromas of this wine, it takes hours in a decanter or in the glass to decipher all the complexities. There’s the fruit forward notes of Gloria and KR, with deep berry, plums and floral scents. Then there are the more earth-driven aspects, like fresh herbs, forest floor and cola that come from Yu-ki and Pratt. On the palate, you’ll find the elegant mouthfeel we have come to expect from Akiko’s Cuvée. The balance between fruit and acidity is perfect. Enjoy this from 2022 through 2032.

2019 Hawk Hill Chardonnay

The 2018 Hawk Hill Chardonnay—our second vintage of this wine—has a light straw color and offers aromas of flint, apple pie spice, lemon and nutmeg. Acidity is the first impression on the palate, followed by an intense mix of fresh, bright stone fruit and a creamy minerality. The balancing act between tartness and richness is stunning. With a long, lovely finish, this is a Chardonnay to lay down for a couple of years, or to enjoy after an hour or so in a decanter.

2019 KR Ranch Pinot Noir

From 2004 through 2015, Freeman made a vineyard-designated Pinot Noir  from Keefer Ranch in the Russian River Valley. When the Dutton family took over the management of this famous block in 2016, we came up with  Valley, located in the southern and western parts of the Russian River Valley. This area is much cooler than those at the appellation’s northern end,  so it is ideally suited to growing Pinot Noir.

2019 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

The 2019 Freeman Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is the one wine out of our six 2019 Pinots that benefits the most from aeration. When you first open it, the aromas are very earthy, with some cool climate reduction, often found in Burgundy and Oregon. After several hours in a decanter, the bright berry scents of the Sonoma Coast begin to emerge and combine beautifully with the more savory elements. The palate has an abundance of crunchy, ripe fruit with brilliant acidity and soft tannins. With a finish that goes on and on, expect this to be at its best between 2021 and 2030.

2019 Yu-ki Estate Pinot Noir

Yu-ki Estate Pinot Noir always has a dark ruby color, due to the high skin to juice ratio in the tiny Pinot Noir grapes that grow in this coastal site. The 2019 Yu-ki 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. As with all great vineyards, the longevity of the wines increases as the vines get older. Enjoy the 2019 Yu-ki from 2022 through 2032.
