Siduri Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2011
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Juicy dark cherries, hard candy and sweet spices jump from the glass in Siduri's 2011 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley. An up-front, fruit-driven Pinot, the 2011 is a highly representative example of Russian River Pinot. The style is a bit subdued by the cool year, but there is plenty to like here, first and foremost the wine's sheer immediacy. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.
This wine combines ripe raspberry and cherry flavors with sweet, smoky oak tones. A wine to drink now, it shows classic Russian River acidity, and it bears a minerally, salty profile that lends structural elegance.
Intense and vibrant, featuring snappy raspberry, wild berry and attractive floral scents. Complex, with enjoyable fruit purity. Drink now through 2016.
