Siduri Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir 2015
Plump and loaded with polished fruit, offering black raspberry and cherry flavors, with spice and cinnamon accents that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2023. Pure aromas of cherries, raspberries and light tobacco. Rose petals, too. Medium to full body, round tannins and a crispy finish. Fruit forward.
In comparison to the Chehalem Mountains fruit that Siduri has used for the previous two decades, the fruit from the Yamhill-Carlton AVA produces bigger, richer wines. Though this works well for Siduri given the winery's California experience, the goal here is not to make a California wine out of Oregon fruit, but rather to produce something that is true to type. Moreover, Siduri truly wanted to produce a wine not just with size but also with complexity. Thanks to the great work of vineyard manager, Ken Kupperman, the winery was able to get fruit that was ripe, rich, and also able to produce a wine with balance and complexity.
