Forbes Twelve Best Wines of 2022

Forbes Twelve Best Wines of 2022

2018 Joseph Phelps Proem No. 1 Pinot Noir
Freestone Estate, Sonoma Coast

Forbes.com – The “Best Wines of 2022” list reflects the most distinctive and outstanding wines from a year’s worth of tastings. 
Proem means a preamble to a story and this wine does a marvelous job of telling the story of a single plot growing amidst Sonoma Coast’s wild and wicked conditions. High elevation vineyards paired with ocean-chilled air conspire to create a pinot noir of uncommon delicacy and heft—a prize fighter in ballet slippers. Focused and precise, it makes for a fascinating wine to drink, especially with food—forest floor meets black cherry and raspberry with silky tannins and a mouth-watering linearity. A one hour decanting is suggested before enjoyment, or add to your cellar for 10-15 years. -Katie Kelly Bell

A wine of serious distinction and refinement with tantalizing aromas of ripe dark fruit, savory dried herbs and hints of forest floor. An expansive, layered palate of blackberry and black cherry with an effortless tannin structure to create a complex, balanced wine with equal parts grace and power. A pure illustration of the Quarter Moon Vineyard’s complexity and refinement on display to the seamless finish.
