2015 Pinot Noir Accolades
92 Points - Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 FRV Pinot Noir gives a pleasant herbal perfume of bouquet garni and wild thyme with a core of red cherries, raspberries, and red plums plus a waft of red roses. The palate is medium bodied and very delicately played in the mouth with silt-like tannins and seamless freshness, finishing remarkably gentle and moreish. 186 cases produced. -Lisa Perrotii-Brow

From the producer's estate vineyard in the wilds of the appellation, this wine opens in ash, stone and forest, presenting tight, structured intensity. Earthy and savory, it shines in tart, tangy layers of cranberry, rhubarb and black cherry dappled in Asian spice and pepper. — Virginie Boone

I think a step up over the 2014, the 2015 Pinot Noir FRV offers complex red and black fruits, dried herbs, flowers, and a touch of salty minerality. With medium-bodied richness, outstanding overall balance, fine tannins, and a great finish, it’s another classic Pinot Noir from this estate that’s well worth seeking out. The 2015 spent ten months in 50% new French oak and should continue drinking nicely for another 5-7 years.
