    Ripe, rich and lively, with a zesty medley of plum, blackberry, blueberry and hints of raspberry. Tightly focused, with delicate oak shadings peeking through, this is a wonderful expression of Pinot Noir fruit.

    The deep ruby/purple-colored 2003 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard offers a glorious perfume of charcoal smoke, black cherries, minerals, and flowers. Medium to full-bodied and elegant yet authoritatively flavored, this is an impeccably made Pinot Noir with loads of character as well as a long, persistent finish. It should drink well for 6-8 years.

    Not really sure what happened with this one - it was really hot and never really cooled down enough to get fruit. Clos Pepe is probably my favorite vineyard from Siduri but this was definitely not drinking well at this time. Little to no fruit (maybe a bit of burnt cherry) and super hot the entire 2 hours I nursed on the bottle. It was just a really expensive palette cleanser at this point. Looking forward to burning down a different vintage from this vintage in a year or so...

With an impressive portfolio of some of the best Pinot Noir vineyards in California, Adam and Dianna Lee have created quite a sensation. The Lees source from 27 different vineyards, and work closely with their growers to ensure the conditions in the vineyard lay a strong foundation for the resulting wines. Vineyards of note include Cargasacchi, Clos Pepe, Pisoni, and the famed Garys' and Rosella's. From these vineyards, individual blocks and clones are vinified separately to give more flexibility at blending time. All the Pinots are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
