The 2007 Siduri Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir reminds us a bit of our 2000 effort from this vineyard, with its aromas of black fruits and forest floor. There's a lush mouth-feel with loads of fruit, a purity of flavors, a velvet texture, and yet also good underlying structure.
"Shows the impeccably ripe fruitiness and purity that characterize Siduri Pinot Noirs, with the powerful structure of this celebrated vineyard. Dry and fairly tannic, the wine's flavors are of cherry pie filling, red currants, anise liqueur, chocolate and pepper spice. Fabulously hedonistic now, and should slowly build momentum for the next six years."
"Another top-notch effort is the deep ruby/purple-hued, forest floor and floral-scented 2007 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard. Full-bodied and dense, with excellent fruit, a beautiful texture, and sweet tannin, this lovely Pinot should age effortlessly for 8-10 years. Proprietor Adam Lee told me 10% whole clusters and 50% new oak were used during the fermentation process."
The Wine Advocate
"Offers broad flavors, mixing ripe plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's pure, rich and complex, turning elegant and supple. Full-bodied, this is long and persistent on the finish."
