Winemaker's Notes:

The Parsons' Vineyard sprung on the scene two years ago when we released our 2005 Novy Syrah from the vineyard. This wine was one of our favorite Syrah offerings from this prodigious vintage and quickly thrust the entire vineyard into the spotlight.

We are fortunate, then, that Tom and Kelley Parsons also had some Pinot Noir planted in their little piece of heaven just off Wood Road in northwest Santa Rosa. We were also fortunate that they had three different clones of Pinot Noir as this blending opportunity often leads to more complex wines. The 2007 is a blend of the 3 clones - 20% of Pommard, 20% of 115, and 60% of 777. Only 5 barrels were produced and the wine was aged in 80% new French oak and bottled in August of 2008 without fining or filtration.

The 2007 Siduri Parsons' Vineyard Pinot Noir is one of our richest, most fruit forward 2007 Pinot Noirs.. The wine shows blueberry cream, vanilla, and violet characteristics. With a rich mouthfeel and generous texture we are not certain that is wine will make old bones (after all there is no track record here for aging) but we do know that it will make inviting drinking for the next 3-5 years.

About Siduri:

Two Pinot Noir lovers, Adam and Dianna Lee, founded Siduri Wines in 1994. They produced only four and a half barrels of Pinot Noir that first vintage. Now they handcraft over 10,000 cases of Pinot Noir from vineyards ranging from Oregon's Willamette Valley down to the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Lucia Highlands AVAs. Each Pinot Noir is created using gravity flow and minimal intervention, with the goal of reflecting the unique terroir of each particular vineyard. Siduri Wines and its sibling, Novy Family Wines have received the Wine Spectator's New York Wine Experience "Critics Choice" recognition a combined seven times since 2004.
