91pointsSonoma Coast Vineyards 2005 Balistreri Family Vineyard Freestone View Block Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)

Tastes brittle and aloof in its youth, with a very dry mouthfeel dominated by acidity and tannins, although the texture is silky and smooth. You don't want to open this too soon. Given the core of cherries and pomegranates, it should develop, but no guarantees. The Freestone area is very cool and its possibilities are unknown but promising.
