The Garys’ Vineyard is a little like Peyton Manning. Okay, so maybe that seems like a stretch – but here’s our thinking. Peyton has an older brother (Cooper) and a younger brother (Eli). The Garys’ Vineyard has an older brother (Pisoni Vineyard) and a younger brother (Soberanes Vineyard). Each of the Manning brothers is a star in their own right, and each of these vineyards is a star as well…but somehow the Garys’ Vineyard (and Peyton) may have made a particular impression on people. Over the last few years, the Garys’ Vineyard has definitely moved up to MVP Status as far as California Pinot Noir Vineyards is concerned. We take two rather disparate sections of this vineyard and pick each section when they are ideal. Some years the section at the bottom of the vineyard comes first, other times the top part of the vineyard ripens earlier. We produce two different Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noirs and then blend only the best barrels together to produce a truly compelling wine. In 2016, the difficult part was coming up with barrels to eliminate. The overall quality of the wines was truly outstanding as this 2016 Siduri Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir shows a richer, fuller-body than in previous vintages. It is a serious wine that truly demonstrates that being the middle child can be special.
