Santa Rita Hills, California
WA 90 WS 90
Siduri is known as a specialist in Pinot Noir from a wide array of appellations in California and Oregon. Jeb Dunnuck for Wine Advocate rated this one 90 points:
"Adam's base appellation bottlings are superb values in 2013 and the 2013 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is a blend of John Sebastiano, Clos Pepe and Cargasacchi vineyards. It offers tons of pretty, perfumed fruits, black cherries, violets and spice to go with a supple, fruit-forward, yet elegant style on the palate. It's already drinking beautifully, but it will continue to impress for at least another 4-5 years."
James Laube for Wine Spectator also scored it 90 points: "Marked by an elegant array of spicy raspberry, blueberry, anise and fine-grained, earth-laced tannins. Most impressive on the finish, where the tannins sustain the flavors."
Enjoy Siduri Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills over the next 4-5 years with roast pork, grilled salmon and rich vegetarian dishes.
