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

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.

Siduri is a unique producer. Started as the shared dream of two Texas wine geeks who wanted nothing more than to move to California and make killer Pinot Noir from the best vineyards, they grew to become the hottest cult winemakers around. They expanded into Oregon where great Pinot Noir abounds and found some ideal vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains AVA in Willamette Valley. Perhaps their best Oregon Pinot yet, the 2014 vintage was a remarkable success story. It is a vintage that produced both a good sized crop but also got fully ripe (a rare combination in Oregon). Like many great vintages, it was a pretty uneventful but just right growing season. This wine shows the character of the Willamette Valley, with darker berry and currant flavors, along with hints of cherry joined by earth, dried brush, and even tobacco flavors. The finish lingers on the slightly tannic, yet expressive finish. This backbone promises that the wine will only improve with time in the bottle. Similar in weight and character to the great 2012 vintage with perhaps a bit more tannin, promising even greater age ability. A classic Oregon Pinot at a great price!

Fresh and inviting, with fine tannins around a light core of cherry and floral flavors, lingering gently. Drink now through 2017.

This entry-level Oregon Pinot from Siduri captures the generous fruit of the 2012 vintage with a mix of berries, cherries and red plum, balanced with juicy, citrusy acids.

Bright ruby-red. Lively redcurrant and cherry scents are complicated by notes of anise, cola and smoky herbs. Juicy, refreshingly dry and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and strawberry flavors and a touch of mocha. Closes on a nervy note, with sneaky tannins adding shape and grip.

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.
