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
