This wine represents the best of the best from the east portion of our prized Zena Crown Vineyard. The vines from these blocks sit on Jory clay loam soil, and produce a Pinot noir that is fresh, focused and full of depth. Each block was fermented and aged separately, utilizing approximately 15% whole-cluster fermentation and 40% new French oak. When it came time to make the blend, we cherry-picked specific, individual barrels from Blocks 10, 11, and 15—a combination of Dijon Clones 115 and 667.
The nose has aromas of fresh cranberry, plum, black cherry, forest floor, black tea and a hint of chamomile and nutmeg. There are light and fresh red raspberry and cherry flavors; bright acidity greets you up at the front of your palate, with moderate tannin present to fill out the middle and carry the wine to a lengthy finish.
Siduri’s depth and breadth of Pinot noirs is truly unique. We specialize in cool-climate Pinot noir, producing wines sourced from the premier vineyards of seven major AVAs spanning from Oregon’s Willamette Valley to California’s Santa Barbara County.
