Coming from Clos Pepe, John Sebastiano, and Dierberg vineyards, the 2015 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a great introduction to this stellar region. Toasted spice, dried earth, herbs and dried red fruits give way to a supple, beautifully textured, straight up delicious Pinot Noir geared for drinking over the coming 2-4 years.
Bright red. Aromas of ripe, smoke-tinged black raspberry, cherry and rose oil are lifted and sharpened by suggestions of white pepper and smoky minerals. Offers juicy red and dark berry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors with a hint of licorice that builds with air. Shows very good heft as well as energy, finishing long and gently tannic, with clinging dark berry character. (JR)
This firmly built middleweight sets its compass on clean, fairly direct red cherry fruit and flirts with tangy, cranberry traits here and there. It is pleasantly rounded on entry and briefly shows a touch of fleshiness but tightens and turns to acidity as it crosses the palate. It closes on a slightly chalky note that argues for a bit of age, and, while not one of Siduri's more expressively fruity wines, it should emerge from its youthful shell and show a little more richness with a brief cellar stay.
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has a subdued nose of tar, dusty earth and wet pebbles with hints of cranberries and pomegranate, plus a touch of white pepper. The palate is soft, straightforward and lively with good length. (LPB)
Elegant aromas of black plum, asphalt, black tea and sandalwood show on the nose of this appellation blend from Adam Lee. The palate offers hints of forest floor with mushroom and mulberry flavors, as well as a persistent woody spice. (MK)
