Winestyr Review

Sourced from a single, ultra-premium, vineyard site on the true Sonoma Coast, just a few miles from the Pacific, this is a truly sophisticated Pinot Noir. Wonderfully balanced, this wine has beautiful elegance and beckons for you to take another sip. Aged in 50% new French oak for 16 months.

What We Love

  • Great balance
  • From the true Sonoma Coast
  • Single Vineyard

The 2012 Dichotomy Pinot Noir from Friedeman Wines is a stunning value for this style of Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast


Friedeman Wines is a micro-producer of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.


Originally from the Chicago area themselves, the Friedemans' story behind their foray into winemaking epitomizes those we had in mind when we started Winestyr. Their first production, only 200 cases a handful of years ago, took place more or less out of a garage, and was so well received that it sold out to local residents before it could even be introduced to the outside public. They've since produced several more vintages, each a slightly larger production than the last (though still very small productions), and have continued to grow their craft business organically. This is the winery you want to hear about on a trip to wine country - the one only the locals know about and love because of its great product and fantastic people.
