Siduri Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014
VinousLight, bright red. Spice-laced aromas of fresh strawberry and redcurrant, with a hint of white pepper emerging with air. Taut, linear and nervy on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red berry skin flavors and a touch of black tea. Closes with repeating spiciness, good energy and very soft tannins. This would be delicious with a light chill, à la Beaujolais.
Wine SpectatorBright and tangy, with a refreshing lilt of acidity to the tightly wound cherry, pomegranate and white pepper flavors. Best after 2016. 10,699 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a round and fruity wine, offering pretty flavors of cherry and hints of darker berries. There are notes of earth and anise also, and just a twinge of plastic lingering in the aftertaste.
