The 2015 vintage was our first opportunity to work with fruit from the famed Zena Crown Vineyard. We were completely blown away with the quality of the grapes. We picked our sections of the vineyard over a two-week period, bringing in six different sections of grapes and making six different wines out of them. Then, in the Spring of 2016, we sat down and tasted through each section and came up with a blend that represented what we believed to be the best Siduri Zena Crown Vineyard offering from the vintage. This wine is a bigger, richer expression of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir than the other Siduri offerings. It shows great fruit concentration but also a distinct earthy, mineral edge that makes it both complex and compelling.
