The Blockbuster

Today’s Siduri Wines 2012 Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir is the first wine we’ve featured from winemaker Adam Lee. After tasting today’s wine we decided that his reputation for crafting incredible Pinot is well deserved.

Today’s wine was sourced from the Sierra Mar Vineyard, which is quickly becoming the rising star of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. With wines like today’s, it’s easy to see why! Today’s treat is a delicious Pinot that veers directly to the bold expression of the varietal, or, as one of our tasting panel members described it, today’s wine “immediately wakes up to say hello.” Supple, smooth, and bursting with fruit flavor, today’s wine is a Pinot lover’s dream.

If you love your Pinot on the bolder side of the tracks, please don’t hesitate to snap up a few bottles of today’s Siduri treat. You won’t be disappointed!

Tasting Profile

Look:

On the darker side for Pinot, with a delightful cherry red color.

Smell:

A Pinot that immediately wakes up to say hello. Extracted, deep fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry mingle with subtle toasted oak, black peppercorn, lavender, and dark baking spices.

Taste:

Incredibly bold and lush on the palate, with very fruit forward flavors. Deep, deep notes of braised dark cherry, blackberry, and mulberry shine through, with additional hints of tobacco leaf, rosemary, dried berry bramble, and rhubarb.

Finish:

A blockbuster of a Pinot, with bold and stunningly delicious flavors. The finish is supple, with pleasant acidity and a delightful drying effect on the sides of the palate.

Pairing:

Grilled pork tenderloin, served with a red wine and wild mushroom sauce drizzled overtop.
