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.

2022 Gloria Estate Pinot Noir

Gloria is Freeman’s estate vineyard, planted adjacent to the winery and just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Ken and Akiko acquired this site— previously a Gravenstein 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, who was the best-dressed and most beautiful woman in the room. The rest, of course, is history.

2022 Hawk Hill Chardonnay

When we first visited Hawk Hill in the early 2000s, we admired the vineyard’s proximity to Freestone and the cool influence of the nearby coast. The rolling hills where the vineyard lies are blanketed by morning fog and cooling afternoon winds, which allow the grapes to benefit from some of the longest hang times in California. Aside from the challenges of higher humidity due to the fog, the site is ideal for growing perfectly balanced Chardonnay.

2022 Ko-fu Riesling

Freeman’s inaugural Ko-fu Riesling was born when our good friends, the Perrys, invited us to make a Riesling from their Abigail’s Vineyard, just across the street from our winery. We have always enjoyed Rieslings, especially those from Alsace, so it was fitting that Freeman’s first bottling outside the realm of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir was made from this aromatic white variety.

2022 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 a new name for it: KR Ranch. The property sits in the center of the Green 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.

2022 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

We experienced another smoke-free vintage in 2022, which was our second in a row. Winter and early spring rainfall levels were just slightly below average, capping off a four-year stretch of drought conditions for most of California. Flowering during May ran into some cool and foggy weather, which resulted in a considerably smaller Pinot Noir crop for our Gloria Estate vineyard than we’ve seen in recent vintages. Summer brought a typical Russian River Valley pattern of sun, fog and wind, and the small crop ripened quickly. Harvest began on August 19, which was one of our earliest years to date for Gloria. A major heat wave occurred over Labor Day weekend, but fortunately, we had already picked most of our Pinot Noir before temperatures peaked at 110 degrees.

2021 Akiko’s Cuvée Pinot Noir

The 2021 Akiko’s Cuvée is one of the fruitiest and most approachable examples of our “reserve” bottling that we’ve produced in years. The nose presents a blend of blackberries, black cherries and rose water. Akiko’s has the highest acidity level of all of our 2021 Pinots, yet it is balanced on the palate by firm tannins, abundant fruitiness and French oak nuances. The finish goes on for several minutes with the acidity, fruit and oak playing off of each other. Try the 2021 Akiko’s in 2024 and hold some in the cellar through 2035 or longer.

2021 Yu-ki Estate Pinot Noir

Of the three West Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs we made in 2021, the Yu-ki Estate is the most open, with wild blackberries on the nose and aromas of fresh roots, lilacs and olallieberry coulis. The weight on the palate is substantial and is framed by firm tannins, masking some of the wine’s underlying acidity. As the wine opens up in the glass, perfectly balanced fruit and earthy flavors come through and last for a few minutes on the finish. The 2021 Yu-ki Estate should be at its best from early 2024 through 2033.

2021 West Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

The 2021 West Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is reminiscent of a young Savigny-lès-Beaune, with its subtle nose of Asian spices, floral notes and wet earth. There is considerable tannin on the understated palate, which opens up nicely with a decanting and some time in the glass. The tannins soften and allow the well-balanced acidity and beautiful, berry flavors to come through. Give the ’21 West Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir a few years in the cellar. It should drink beautifully from 2025 through 2037.

2022 Ryo-fu Chardonnay

The 2022 Freeman Ryo-fu Chardonnay has a pale, straw color and appears youthful in the glass. The complex aroma combines stone fruits, fresh hay, apples and lemon custard. On the palate, the wine displays a balancing act of high, refreshing acidity with a mouthful of wonderfully ripe Chardonnay fruit. A flavorful and refreshing finish predicts a long evolution for the ’22 Ryo-fu, which will drink well from 2024 through 2030.

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.
