Siduri Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014
VinousLight, bright red. Spice-laced aromas of fresh strawberry and redcurrant, with a hint of white pepper emerging with air. Taut, linear and nervy on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red berry skin flavors and a touch of black tea. Closes with repeating spiciness, good energy and very soft tannins. This would be delicious with a light chill, à la Beaujolais.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley comes from four vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains and Zena Crown in Eola-Amity. Matured in 22% new oak, it has a very pure red cherry and cassis-scented bouquet with a touch of violet coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, plush tannin. There is a rounded texture here, the 10% whole cluster lending a little frisson towards the lightly spiced finish. This could have been a more impactful Pinot Noir, but I think winemaker Adam Lee's more prudent approach makes for a better wine. Great value to boot.
Wine SpectatorBright and tangy, with a refreshing lilt of acidity to the tightly wound cherry, pomegranate and white pepper flavors. Best after 2016. 10,699 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a round and fruity wine, offering pretty flavors of cherry and hints of darker berries. There are notes of earth and anise also, and just a twinge of plastic lingering in the aftertaste.
