    Winemaker's Notes:

    We've been working hard on our Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir over the past few vintages. For awhile we have felt that Rosella's was a vineyard where we have been underperforming. Certainly the wines we were producing were good, but we felt that they should have been better. We've taken several steps to increase the quality level, including spending even more time in the vineyard, often dividing the four individual clonal lots of fruit we get each vintage, into several different sections and treating each of these differently in hopes of discovering what works best on each section. We believe that the positive aspects of these changes started showing up in the 2005 vintage, with the 2006 showing marked improvement, and 2007 being our finest Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir yet.

    The 2007 Siduri Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir ended up being a blend of 40% Clone 777, 20% Pisoni Selection, 20% Pommard, and 20% 828 Clone. We utilized whole clusters on both the Pisoni Selection and the Pommard and fermented with primarily indigenous yeasts. We also bled off approximately 10% of the juice from each of the fermentors in hopes of concentrating the must.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Supple and engaging, with ripe, generous plum, black cherry, mineral, spice and subtle cedary oak nuances. This full-bodied Pinot possesses depth, concentration and complexity, with excellent balance and length. Drink now through 2015. 730 cases made.

    If concerned first and foremost with bright, but well-ripened, red-cherry fruit, this comparatively complex young Pinot shows varied elements of creme brulee and vanilla in addition to subtle accents of woodsy spice. It is slightly viscous and fairly full at the start but picks up a trim of finishing toughness, and, while it can be enjoyed now with heartier meat entrees, it will benefit from a few years of age.
