2012 Siduri Parson’s Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 258 cases, $50. Released April 2014. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Black fruits are featured with a heavy dose of charred oak and cigar box evident on the nose and palate. Luscious black cherry and blackberry core with muscular, slightly astringent tannins and a generous finish filled with plenty of fruit goodness. An awkward bruiser right now that will benefit from more time in bottle. Score: 87-88. Reviewed April 19, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2011 Siduri Parsons’ Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 420 cases, $49. From a very warm site on the Santa Rosa Plain. Typically the wines are big and ripe. Clones are 115, 777, and Pommard. Kelley Parsons farms this vineyard along with vineyard manager Jim Pratt, and she is also a noted tomato grower in the area. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Vibrant, expressive nose showing aromas of berries on the vine, cherry pie and spice. A wowzer in the mouth with a gargantuan blast of very ripe and lush cherry and raspberry fruit that holds your attention on the huge finish. Soft and velvety in the mouth with enough balanced acidity and tannin to keep it on point. This wine will have fans among fruit lovers. Very good. Reviewed March 23, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2010 Siduri Parsons’ Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 197 cases, $45. · Dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with vivid aromas of black cherries, black raspberries and exotic spices. Big, bold and tasty with a full-on core of black cherry fruit with a sidecar of cola and Hoison sauce. A good spark of acidity keeps the wine juicy and refreshing and this, along with the smooth mouth feel, makes this wine a treat. Very good. Reviewed February 22, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »
