2018 Sonoma Mountain Van der Kamp Vineyard Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir
The 2018 Pinot Noir Van der Kamp Vineyard is fabulous. Dark, rich and expansive, the 2018 has tremendous character and tons of nuance. Black cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and chocolate all infuse the big, powerful tannins that give the 2018 a ton of brooding intensity that needs time to soften. This is built for the cellar.

About This Wine
The Van der Kamp vineyard is situated on the western face of Sonoma Mountain, which exposes the vineyard to breezes from the Petaluma Gap and provides Pinot Noir with the cooler climate it thrives in. The Van der Kamp vineyard is truly a family operation, with the brother and sister team of Ulysses and Malia Van der Kamp doing the lion’s share of vineyard work themselves. This is such a distinctive wine – the generous fruit is accented by some gorgeous aromatic notes like forest floor, underbrush and smoked meat. This is also a wine that is incredibly versatile when it comes to food pairings. Siduri has been sourcing fruit from this vineyard since 1996, and we’re delighted to showcase this beautiful place.
