Siduri Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2017
The 2017 was a blend from 12 different vineyard sites in the Russian River Valley, ranging from cooler, coastal influenced sites in western Sonoma County through to the warmer Green Valley and Santa Rosa plains. All the components were fermented and aged separately in ~30% new French oak barrels and our final selections were “married” in tank after 8 months in barrel, and then returned to barrel where they finished aging. This Pinot Noir offers aromas of jammy boysenberry and raspberry, black walnut, nutmeg and hints of forest floor. Moderate tannins greet you up front, followed by a juicy texture in the mid-palate. Pleasant warm and toasty oak flavors compliment flavors of sweet spice, pomegranate and cranberry that carry through to the long finish.

Jeb DunnuckA slightly bigger wine than the Sonoma Coast, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers tons of rich black fruits, cola, and smoked earth characteristics in its medium to full-bodied, rounded, textured profile. Coming from a mix of sites, mostly destemmed (there are 15% whole clusters), and brought up in 17% new French oak, it’s a rocking little wine that delivers loads of pleasure.
