Hazelnut Ricotta Bouchée. Luxardo Cherry.
Pairing - Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County, 2017
The 2017 Siduri Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir comes primarily from vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills. This area produces some of the darkest and most concentrated Pinot Noirs from the entire state of California. Using a mix of whole cluster and destemmed grapes from these vineyards, they were blended in barrel until just the right mix was created. The goal was to make a truly compelling and immediately enjoyable Pinot Noir that reflects Santa Barbara County. There are upfront aromas of dried cranberry, Black Mission Fig, Chinese Five Spice and black plum, along with eucalyptus, white pepper, cumin, and nutmeg. The flavors include fresh raspberry, black plum and blueberry followed by a smooth, broad texture with medium acidity.
Refreshed Pinot Noir Capellini. Caviar. Parsley Cream.
Pairing - Siduri, Hawks View Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2015
Right next door to the Muirfield Vineyard, but differing from Muirfield in that it is planted largely on rootstock, the Hawks View Pinot Noir always shows a bit riper and richer than its neighbor. In 2015 it ripened earlier than ever before, as we started picking in mid-September. A bit more dark fruit rather than red, more blackberries mixed with dried herbs and earth, this Pinot Noir should only develop more complexity with 2-3 years in the bottle.
Mushroom Velouté & Escargots. Wagyu Jerky.
Pairing - Siduri Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, 2015 & Siduri, Parson’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2014 (side by side pairing)
Russian River Valley Pinot Noir : The key to the 2015 Siduri Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is in the diversity of sources. This sounds odd, given that the wine comes entirely from within the Russian River Valley AVA, but this region is large and possesses a myriad of soils, exposures, and unique terroirs that together produce a superb representation of the whole of the Russian River Valley. This 2015 offering showcases this area in all its complexity while also making for a wine that is imminently drinkable upon release.
Parsons: From a site on the edges of Santa Rosa, this vineyard-designate shows a wealth of baked strawberry and is noteworthy for its vibrantly fruity aromatics. Ripe, velvety and lush on the palate, it delivers sensually and deliciously, with a lasting imprint of cola spice on the finish. Tastes sweet beyond ripeness, with a rich, juicy core of cherry pie that fans out to blueberry and wild berry flavors, gaining depth and structure. Reveals a gravelly earth edge that offsets the ripeness.
Muscovy Duck Breast. Harissa Eggplant. Black Bean Hummus. Coriander Salad.
Pairing: Siduri Clos Pepe Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2014
The 2014 vintage is the final in a string of three, large crop, early ripening vintages in California. Seemingly, each vintage has ripened earlier and earlier while producing substantially larger than normal yields. Fortunately, these larger yields have slowed down the ripening process, allowing the grapes to get a normal amount of time on the vines, even if the season is an early one. The winery did think it was especially important to spend more time in the vineyards as harvest approached, as the vines did show signs of the drought near the end of the season. Pressed boysenberry aromas highlight simultaneously dark and fresh fruit on the nose of this bottling by Adam Lee, which also conveys Earl Grey tea, lavender, hibiscus and crushed pencils. The palate picks up the same tack, offering delicate fruits and florals, from cranberry to elderflower.
Bread & Cheese Casserole. Red Wine Glazed Chorizo. Mulled Pinot Noir Granite.
Pairing - Lemoravo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands, 2016
The Lemoravo Vineyard is planted to multiple clones and, as much as I thought that it would ripen (by clone), I actually found that it ripened from northwest to southeast following the sections most exposed to the wind off of the Pacific ripening quickest. We picked the vineyard in 4 passes, each one moving progressively southeast. The 2016 Siduri Lemoravo Vineyard Pinot Noir shows a fairly classic Santa Lucia Highlands profile – with loads of concentrated red and black fruits, along with slight hints of dried herbs and even a slight dusty, earthy complexity. The wine is more seamless that heavy, with superb balance, and a longer, lingering finish with just the slightest hint of finishing tannins (but good acidity). This wine drinks very well right out of the gate, but should certainly age for a few years with no problem whatsoever.
