2007 Siduri Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills - Sta. Rita Hills

Sometimes you just crave massive, in your face, high octane pinot noir, and on many of those occasions, one of Adam Lee's Siduri's will fill this void! We've been enjoying Adam's wines for years now, and I always try to have a 1/2 case to a case on hand for our enjoyment, and for our friends to enjoy. Like Kosta Browne or Loring, these wines are always crowd pleasers!

Popped, errrrr, unscrewed and poured tonight at Manon in Lambertville, and it showed that gorgeous ruby color in the glass. On the nose, nice black cherry with hints of cola and raspberry, with a subtle spice an strawberry.

On the palate, more black cherry and hints of cola, with some nice red fruits of raspberry and strawberry. This has definitely integrated a bit, and some of the alcohol has blown off from the last time we've had it. The finish is much smoother now, and everything seems to have melded together well. This is drinking nicely right now, and I don’t see any reason to hold these any longer. 91 point worthy and absolutely delicious! Cheers!
