Two Delicious Siduri Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs

2015 Siduri Pinot Noir, Hawks View Vineyard, Willamette Valley, Oregon

The fruit produced at Hawks View vineyard in the Willamette Valley has progressed considerably since its beginnings ten years ago, and has greatly improved under the watchful eyes of Adam Lee of Siduri. Aggressive floral and red fruit aromas compliment the zippy cherry, pomegranate and spice flavors of this well-made medium bodied Pinot noir. Comte cheese, rosemary scented ham or tea smoked duck will bring out the characteristics of this wine.

2015 Siduri Pinot Noir, Yamhill Carlton, Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Yamhill-Carlton vineyards in Willamette Valley are highly prized among Pinot noir winemakers everywhere, and the wines Adam Lee  produces from there should also be highly prized. This 2015 vintage is a powerful wine vinted from grapes that survived one of the hottest summers of all time in the Willamette Valley. Cherry, minerals and wet earth aromas lead the olfactory parade, pontificating the palate to pursue the presupposition of flavor perfection to follow.  Yeah, a whole lot of cherryliciousness, wet tobacco and sage flavors followed. Spore it up with Porcini, Shitake, Lobster or Morel mushrooms to release all of the earthy nuances this wine can provide.
