Siduri Pinot Noir Sommelier Cuvée is a lush blend of Pinot Noir from Monterey, Santa Barbara, and Sonoma Counties crafted by Master Sommelier Michael Jordan and Wine Director Brian Phillips, bottled exclusively for Capital Grille (and shared with Wine Gems!)
For nearly 20 years, Adam and Dianna Lee, owners and winemakers of Siduri Wines, have been sourcing fruit from some of the most influential and well-known Pinot Noir vineyards in the country. Today, Siduri produces single vineyard Pinot Noir from 27 different vineyards stretching from Santa Barbara north to Oregon's Willamette Valley. They have been fortunate enough to establish relationships with top tier growers/vineyards including: Pisoni, Van der Kamp, Clos Pepe and Page- Nord. All of Siduri's Pinot Noir is produced unfiltered and unfined in an effort to maximize the expression of these very diverse sites. Siduri is unique in the breadth and depth of their single varietal focus. Both native Texans, Adam and Dianna Lee fell in love with Pinot Noir in 1994 and have continued to evolve as winemakers, creating wines which reflect their growth and passion. "Siduri" is named for the Babylonian Goddess of wine, who, in Babylonian mythology, held the wine of eternal life. "To taste Siduri is to taste some of the best Pinot Noir made in America today." - Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator columnist & author of New California Wine.
Siduri Pinot Noir Sommelier Cuvée offers an aroma of raspberry compote, fresh strawberry, red plum and blueberry. Slight notes of rose petals and rosemary blossom, with traces of more herbal notes such as white peppercorn and bay leaf underneath. Lovely red cherry, pomegranate, and black plum on the palate; bright and fresh acidity hit up at the front, with moderate tannin lending support for a long, pleasant finish.
