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.
