Winestyr Review

Like the Dichotomy wines before it, this Pinot Noir has firm tannins, a silky mouthfeel, and just enough acid to make for the perfect balance. A terrific representation of Pinot Noir, it is versatile for a wide range of occasions and a perfect example of why relatively new winemaker, Brooks Friedeman, is already receiving very impressive critical acclaim.

What We Love

  • Strikingly well-balanced
  • Versatile and sophisticated
  • Russian River Valley

Have this wine on hand as your "go-to" Pinot Noir for virtually any occasion.


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.
