2018 Siduri Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

I love the appellation series from this estate and tasting through them is a great way to learn about the difference in regions on the West Coast. Starting with the 2018 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley, it comes from multiple sites and saw 15% stems and 20% new French oak. Its deeper ruby/plum hue gives way to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a fresh, nicely structured style as well as terrific notes of black raspberries, strawberries, dried herbs, wood smoke, and earth. It's balanced, has nicely integrated acidity, and is just a smoking good Pinot Noir.

2018 Siduri Pinot Noir Siduri Zena Crown Vineyard

Coming from the Eola-Amity Hills region in Oregon, the 2018 Pinot Noir Siduri Zena Crown Vineyard was completely destemmed and spent 12 months in 35% new French oak. Its translucent ruby/plum color is followed by a more earthy, savory effort revealing notes of plums, blackberries, damp earth, orange rind, and underbrush. It opens up with time in the glass but has a slightly more musty character that I could do without. Nevertheless, it has solid fruit on the palate, ripe tannins, and a good finish.
