14.3% alc., 295 cases, $50, screwcap. Released April 2017. A combination of grapes from ungrafted vines and newer Dijon clones on roots, all dry farmed. · Light ruby red color in the glass. A real charmer with seductive aromas of cherry, cranberry baking spices and earthy flora that hold up nicely over time in the glass. Juicy, forward and elegant, with a light to mid weight core of delicious Bing cherry, cola, red licorice and spice flavors. The wine has a balletic character with impeccable harmony and is thoroughly delightful. Score: 94. Reviewed September 24, 2017 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2012 Siduri Hawk’s View Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 235 cases, $42. Release June 2014. · Medium reddish purple hue in the glass. The most flamboyant and interesting nose of the Oregon offerings with aromas of black cherry, sassafras, forest floor and graham. Pleasing flavors of black cherry, black raspberry with good fullness and polish on the palate. Impressive persistence on the fruit-filled finish which leaves a modest amount of tannins in its wake. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and recorked bottle, this was clearly my favorite with the most memorable finish of the 2012 Oregon offerings. Will only improve in the cellar.
