Siduri Pinot Noir California 2006
Though not restrained (constrained would actually be a better word for Pisoni) this wine is tight. The first taste reveals the fruit and richness that so often typifies Pisoni but as you continue to taste the wine you notice the influence of the whole clusters, the range of flavors from the native yeasts, and then a finish that combines ripe tannins and good natural acidity. Given the proclivity of the Pisoni Vineyard wines to improve with time we can only believe that this wine will amply reward those to want to age it for five or more years.
Slightly brownish tint makes me fear oxidation. Nose is a tad earthy, maybe mushroomy. Very pinot noirish on the tip of the tongue--medium weight, lots of cherries. Fairly satisfying as it moves across the palate, but not complicated at all. A touch of tannin pucker, but, thankfully, no indication of oxidation that I feared. US39.99 from Wine Club in 2008.
Lot's of red fruit, rasberry, cherry, great nose long finish. Great value
