Siduri Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Sapphire Hill Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Sonoma County Pinot Noir possesses good, red berry fruit and refreshing acidity but also a distinct earthy spice to it. Unlike some of the previous versions of this wine, the 2005 Sonoma Pinot is not all about the fruit but also shows more complex, secondary flavors as well. Undoubtedly, this is due to the Sonoma Mountain and Sonoma Coast fruit, which tends to be less purely fruit driven and have more forest and earthy characteristics. Although this wine drinks well by itself we find that it really shines with some food, such as salmon on the grill or other grilled fish or lighter meats.

Siduri Wines:
Siduri started more than 15 years ago in our native Texas. At the time it was a dream shared by two wine geeks (us!) who wanted nothing more than to move to California and make killer Pinot Noir from the finest vineyards we could find.

Siduri started more than 15 years ago in our native Texas. At the time it was a dream shared by two wine geeks (us!) who wanted nothing more than to move to California and make killer Pinot Noir from the finest vineyards we could find. Today that dream is a reality. In 2004 Siduri celebrated its 10 year anniversary. We can hardly believe it, but between two wine labels (Siduri and sister label Novy Family Wines) and three beautiful children, we are beyond blessed and beyond busy! With our small but tireless crew we produce over 25 different Pinot Noir wines each year, representing the largest Pinot Noir focus of any California winery. We invite you to use this site to learn more about our wines, winemaking, and vineyards as well as to access our online tasting notes. To receive information directly from the winery on special wine offerings, events and tastings, please take a moment to join our mailing list. Next time your travels take you to the wine country, be sure to give us a call. We would be delighted to have you visit the winery for a personal tour and tasting. Thanks again for your interest in Siduri. We love what we do and enjoy the opportunity to share with others. Adam & Dianna Lee Read less
