Adam loves the Russian River Valley in 2015, and his 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a classic, elegant, seamless Pinot Noir. Coming from seven different sites from throughout the appellation, it has classic red and black fruits, spice-box and dried herbs, with a medium-bodied, elegant, silky profile on the palate. It's forward, charming and straight up delicious. I was able to taste Adam Lee’s full-lineup for this report, including his Russian River Valley, Sonoma and Oregon releases. It’s a big lineup, but there’s some gorgeous Pinot Noirs here. (JebDunnuck.com)
Spicy aromas of dark cherry and raspberry introduce succulent, round and fleshy medium weight flavors that possess a polished mouthfeel before concluding in a dusty and ever-so-mildly austere finish. This moderately firm effort could be enjoyed young or held for a few years first, which is what I would suggest to allow this to unwind further. Very good quality here.
Not far removed in character from Siduri's Russian River Valley offering reviewed just above other than that it shows an ever so slightly lighter step, this medium-full-bodied working similarly tightens up after its pleasantly rounded entry with pushy acidity accentuating the chalky effects of its nominal varietal tannins. It, too, is Pinot Noir best set aside for another couple of years if at all possible, but service with richer food will help to facilitate its enjoyment if not.
The Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is made from a blend declassified wines coming from throughout the Russian River Valley, from the Santa Rosa Flood Plain west to Green Valley. Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has very pure aromas of black cherry and black raspberry with hints of violets and chocolate box. Medium to full-bodied and straight-up seductive with its gregarious fruit and voluptuous texture, it finishes with appealing freshness. (LPB)
Dark red cherry, pomegranate, rose petal and sweet spices are all nicely layered in the 2015 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley). Juicy and expressive, the 2015 is a terrific wine at this level. Sweet floral and spice notes add a measure of brightness. This has quite a bit more freshness than the Sonoma County Pinot. There are plenty of highlights in this range from Siduri. Harvest was unusually early, as it was everywhere in 2015. All of the Pinot fruit was in by the end of August. It has been about a year since Siduri was acquired by Jackson Family Wines. Aside from some refocusing on the lineup and a new tasting room in Healdsburg for the public, I don't see too many changes here. As always, the Siduri Pinots are plush, fruit forward and easy to drink upon release. When it comes to vineyard designate wines, my preference is for those Pinots that convey something about site. In my view, those are the best wines in this range. (AG)
