This Pinot Noir bottling comes from the cool-climate Cleary Ranch site on California's Sonoma Coast. Richly garnet-hued, this wine captivates the senses while it's light body and delicate tannings make it the perfect choice for pairing with seafood and fowl dishes.

97/100 - An astonishingly energetic Pinot Noir. Clarity of site and purity of fruit shine through. A singular look at the Freestone Valley through the lens of the Cleary Ranch Vineyard, one of the coldest sites on the West Sonoma Coast, where the foggy marine layer from the nearby Pacific is met with the cooling effects of Salmon Creek. This Pinot communicates a beautiful transparency and shows a concentration of fruit and flowers. Aromas of smoky violets, forest floor and wild mint move to the bass notes created by tangy blackberries and red plum skin. The palate is lithe and finely etched. Saline minerality frames gorgeous red and blue berries, smoky hints of clove and elegance of wild herbs and mouthfuls of purple florals complete this haunting coastal beauty. - Clive Pursehouse, Decanter

93/100 - Hibiscus with ripe strawberry and orange peel aromas that follow through to a medium body, with firm tannins that are polished and fresh with orange peel in the finish. Tight and structured. Needs time to open. Try after 2026. - James Suckling 

On the nose, alluring notes of succulent crimson plums and hints of pomegranate, beautifully intertwined with layers of fresh cinnamon, raspberry, and dusty earth.
On the palate, luscious red fruits, invigorating acidity and smooth tannins yield an assertive yet refined palate with impeccable balance.

Cleary Ranch encompasses the 14 acres of Ernest’s vines in foggy Freestone Valley. Only 7 miles from the Pacific, it is one of the coldest areas in all of west Sonoma Coast with the marine layer lingering well into mid-day and returning late afternoon. Goldridge soil with clay peppering closer to Salmon Creek. The extremely cool climate allows for extended hang time before harvest delivering deep complexity.
