Siduri Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2007
The 2007 Siduri Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a plush wine, full of ripe plum, blackberry and currant fruit that's intense, concentrated, and spicy. Certainly this wine should age well for a few years but we feel this is one of our more immediate appellation wines and should make compelling drinking in the near term.
Pale red outer ring with a gradual shift to a brick red colored center. Clear through to center. Scents of a forest after a rainy day and a hint of raspberries soaked in alcohol. A gentle tingle from the acids up front followed by a long smooth finish. Berries and oak from beginning to end.
from [URL=http://2daysperbottle.blogspot.com]2 Days per Bottle[/URL].This smells terrific. The nose starts a little bit earthy, but then adds black cherries, raspberries, and some spices, dill and sage. This is a nice mouthfull. The mouth-feel is silky smooth. Fruit is big and full, but not fruit-bombish or overpowering. Rich black cherry is balanced by some tart wild strawberries. Sage and a bit of dill fill out the attack. A bit of pepper joins on the mid-palate, and the finish lingers. This is good. This is really good. It is not a modern over-oaked vanilla caramel California disaster, nor is it a thin cherry cola and black tea Oregon why bother. It lacks the florals of a delicate Burgundy, but it is very well balanced, earthy, with fruit and spice. I can't guarantee this one will make it to Night Two, but I'll try. For you, I'll try.Nope. Didn't make it. Sorry.
Lovers of lean Burgundies will probably find this fruit bomb out of their comfort zone, but it is a major winner for lovers of pure, fruit-dominated, beautifully extracted California Pinot Noir. From a vineyard located near Sebastopol (but in the Sonoma Coast rather than Russian River appellation), it is soft as velvet yet deep and long and possessed of terrific fruit density - more sweet dried cherry and plum than tart cherry or pomegranate. Yet there is no sense of over-ripeness or hotness or clumsiness in this wine whatsoever. It's wonderfully balanced and fills out all the nooks and crannies in the taste buds with ripe fruit and complex musky/earthy/smoky notes.
Full bodied but not overpowering. Has a smooth finish with god complexity in between.

Enticing loamy earth, dried currant and black cherry fruit is supple and elegant, medium- to full-bodied. Complex and layered, ending with caressing tannins and a long finish. Drink now through 2014.
Exhibiting a deeper ruby color as well as more incense, earth, black cherry, and cranberry notes, the 2007 Pinot Noir Sonatera Vineyard possesses medium body, excellent depth, sweet tannin, and decent acidity. It is best drunk over the next 4–5 years.
