Siduri Sonatera Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Cellar Selection. A funk of truffle and foresty pine resin is joined by orange peel for an inviting and intriguing opening to this wine that is otherwise velvety, structured and intense. Juicy on the finish, it shares flavors of black cherry and black tea. Drink now through 2021.
From another Sonoma Coast vineyard, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sonatera Vineyard is outstanding. This wine, coming from four separate clones, offers blacker fruits, more forest floor and complex Côte de Nuits- like characteristics, in a slightly bigger framework than the three predecessors, along with plenty of depth and silky, soft tannins. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
Dusty, cedary oak notes give this a drying edge. The core of dried berry flavors takes on a savory herb accent. Drink now. 346 cases made.
