About Siduri 2013 Pinot Noir, Sonatera Vyd., Sonoma Coast

Siduri is a unique producer. Started as the shared dream of two Texas wine geeks who wanted nothing more than to move to California and make killer Pinot Noir from the best vineyards, they grew to become the hottest cult winemakers around. In some regards, the Sonatera Vineyard Pinot Noir is the tale of two vineyards, one of which is at the top of a hill, the other one being at the bottom of the hill. Generally, in cooler vintages, the top section outperforms the bottom, while in warmer years, the opposite is true. Of course, the two vineyards are actually the one Sonatera Vineyard with two widely varying sections.

In 2013 Siduri Sonatera Vineyard Pinot Noir is a blend of 8 barrels from the top section of the vineyard (clones 667 and 777) and 6 barrels from the lower section of the vineyard (Pommard Clone). The fact that both sections are so equally represented seems to be an indication of the overall balance and quality of the 2013 vintage.

Robert Parker scored this 91 points saying "From another Sonoma Coast vineyard, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sonatera Vineyard is outstanding. This wine, coming from four separate clones, offers blacker fruits, more forest floor and complex Côte de Nuits- like characteristics, in a slightly bigger framework than the three predecessors, along with plenty of depth and silky, soft tannins. Drink it over the next 5-6 years."

and Vinous Media scored it 92 saying "Bright ruby. Black raspberry, cherry-cola and floral scents are accented by white pepper and Asian spices. Fresh and focused on the palate, offering vibrant red fruit liqueur flavors and a sexy rose pastille flourish. Shows very good energy and lift on the seamless finish, which features silky tannins and an echo of candied rose."

and Wine Enthusiast Magazine designated this a 'Cellar Selection". With a 92 point score they said "A funk of truffle and foresty pine resin is joined by orange peel for an inviting and intriguing opening to this wine that is otherwise velvety, structured and intense. Juicy on the finish, it shares flavors of black cherry and black tea. Drink now through 2021."
