2006 Siduri Sapphire Hill Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., 295 cases, $40. Siduri has sourced fruit from this vineyard since 2000. This is consistently one of Siduri’s most elegant bottlings. 13 barrels out of 38 were chosen for this vineyard-designated wine. · A demurely colored and lighter weighted wine of great finesse with oak-kissed strawberries and cherries running throughout. The gossamer tannins create a silky texture. Very approachable, but leans a little heavily on oak. Reviewed November 17, 2008 WINERY » ARTICLE »
