Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with a pleasant mild blueberry bouquet with hints of cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum with notes of mild minerality and faint blackberry. I also detected hints of blueberry and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Pinot is very food friendly and would pair nicely with cherry amaretto chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Siduri Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is our first vintage that includes fruit from the Yamhill-Carlton and Eola-Amity AVAs in addition to our “normal” fruit from the Chehalem Mountains Appellation. The fruit from these areas produces darker fruited, more concentrated wines with more backbone and tannins than what we get from the Chehalem Mountains. The wines from the Laurelwood soil in the Chehalem Mountains tend to be red fruited, more perfumed, and possess a greater sense of delicacy. The combination of these sources has made the most complete and complex Willamette Valley Pinot Noir that Siduri has ever produced. It is a wine that shows the character of the full Willamette Valley, with darker berry and currant flavors, along with hints of cherry joined by earth, dried brush, and even tobacco flavors. The finish lingers on the slightly tannic, yet expressive finish. This backbone promises that the wine will only improve with time in the bottle.

Your comments on this wine:





Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
