About This Wine
"2018 VDK is a Rockstar wine in more ways than one! Deeply dark & concentrated, earthy and bursting with black cherry and chocolate – such an intense Pinot is drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve with some cellar time. 2018 is a really great vintage." - Jeffrey Vakassian, Assistant Estate Manager
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.
