Siduri Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Hospices of Sonoma Keefer Vineyard Clone 2a 2006
The 2006 Hirsch displays just the beauty that we want in this wine. Lighter-colored, but full of flavors of raspberry and sour cherries, this wine really builds in the mouth. The finish displays good acidity and a pleasing hint of earthiness and even a touch of minerality. This wine drinks well enough now but we have always had good success with aging our Hirsch Pinot Noirs.

Now, compared to the others I have had so far this weekend this one was a fruit bomb. I refuse to truly label it that way because I was judging off some heavier and earthier examples. This was a great wine, but not what I normally expect from a Willamette Valley Pinot. Pretty in the glass and held its own when it come to clarity. It has strong light fruit flavors on the nose but they seem to carry a bit more heavily in the mouth. The finish had a bit of the earthiness I was looking for. If I had to drink it I wouldn't complain, but I do like other Oregon Pinots better.

The prodigious, inky/ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard boasts sumptuous aromas of flowers, black raspberries, blackberries, and autumnal vegetation. The complex, bold, dramatic aromatics are followed by a full-bodied wine displaying considerable opulence, flesh, and length. Consume it over the next 5-7 years.
