The 2010 Pinot Noir Estate Freestone Vineyard is more fruit-driven than the Pastorale. Immediate and juicy, the 2010 jumps from the glass with layers of radiant red fruit. I would prefer to drink the 2010 while the fruit remains front and center. This supple, resonant Pinot is another gorgeous wine from Phelps. The 2010 is a blend of roughly equal parts Pastorale and Quarter Moon Vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

Distinctive, with briny oyster shell minerality that imparts a chalky edge. The wild berry flavors are tightly wound, with firm tannins.

Tasted side by side with 2011 Williams Selyem. My tastes went to Phelps but husband chose Williams. Nice dark ruby color. Chewy feel on the mouth with chocolate and tobacco hints. Pinot on steroids.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
