Freeman's estate vineyard is named for Hurricane Gloria - which brought owners Ken and Akiko Freeman together in 1985, and is responsible for this powerhouse wine that will whip your hair back. A balance of oak, fruit, and acidity adorn the robust mouthfeel. Fantastic with roast duck and a vegetable medley you'll ride out any storm in style.

Vinous

The 2017 Pinot Noir Gloria Estate is a gorgeous, super-expressive wine. Ample in feel, but also translucent and finessed, the Gloria is a Pinot of understated beauty. Rose petal, mint and crushed red berries are all beautifully lifted in this precise, wonderfully nuanced Pinot. Drinking window from 2020 - 2032.

Wine Enthusiast

Excellent depth and complexity bring this concentrated wine to a high level of deliciousness. It offers deep, brooding aromas of black cherry, clove and forest floor followed by mouthfilling and focused flavors of black cherry and sour cherry that linger on the finish.
