SIDURI PINOT ROSELLA'S '16
SIDURI PINOT NOIR, ROSELLA'S VINEYARD, SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 2016
NVWE Notes: This is a textbook expression of both the Siduri style and Rosella's structured red fruits. The nose poises scents of red raspberry, red currant, wild strawberry, Italian Maraschino cherry, pink rose, pink peppercorn, toasted grain and dark pipe tobacco above some firming mineral undercurrents. It is slightly juicier and more rich in oaky spice on the palate, where additions of orange zest, lingonberry and cranberry relish brighten the flavors promised by the nose. The finish is long and satisfying, although things promise to be even more fulfilling in another two years. 1000 cases made.
