This single vineyard Pinot Noir is as drinkable as it is intriguing. This wine has quite a bit of aging potential and develops beautifully as it gets more air. I recommend at least a two hour decant to let this wine show its best. Balanced, distinguished, and well made, this is Friedeman's flagship Pinot Noir in what is a wonderfully crafted lineup of wines. 94 points Wine Enthusiast
Friedeman Wines is a micro-producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We are immensely proud to be the exclusive outlet to secure his wines.
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.More from this winery
Are the wines any good? Yes, they are and we taste every wine that is considered for our site. We seek out the best wines from the best small-producers in the U.S. and Winestyr is a collection of our favorites. Most of the wines have impressive accolades, however, don't look for "expert" ratings here - we think it's more important to buy wines you find interesting and to decide for yourself.
