Siduri Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastA huge wine, massively extracted with raspberry and cherry jam fruit, with complex hints of mocha, cola, vanilla, buttered toast and wood spice. The richness is balanced by firm acidity, smooth tannins and a stony minerality. Seems to be offering its best now and over the next 3-4 years.
Wine AdvocateA beautiful, mid-weight, elegant effort, the 2011 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard offers up vivid and defined aromas and flavors, medium-body and a core of juicy acidity that shines on the finish. Developing in the glass, with blacker fruit, underbrush and crushed stone-like minerality, this outstanding wine is youthfully tight and reticent. Give bottles another year or two in the cellar and enjoy through 2019.
Wine SpectatorYouthful and vibrant, pure and rich, with a peppery edge to the dark berry, floral and savory notes. Gains depth and richness, ending with a chewy finish that gives the flavors traction. Drink now through 2021. 613 cases made.
