Siduri is one of our more popular domestic Pinot Noirs in the store, as they show rich, vibrant fruit profiles without going over the top. Winemaker Adam Lee is known for his California Pinot Noir offerings, over the years, he's been able to "get the jump" on vineyards before they became well-known. Just look at the fact that Siduri has made fruit from Pisoni, Rosella's, Garys', John Sebastiano, and others. Many wineries that don't own their own vineyards can't even gain access to just one of these places, but Adam has fruit from all of them! Why is that?...Because these vineyard owners know that Adam will make noteworthy wines that showcase the best these vines have to offer, and the proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Or, maybe, the glass.

The Van der Kamp Vineyard has been in the Siduri portfolio since 1996, making it one of their longest standing sources. On the Western side of Sonoma Mountain, the vines are directly in the line of the fog and winds coming in off the Pacific Ocean and in through the Petaluma Gap. This allows the average harvest dates at Van der Kamp to be virtually the same as those on the far Sonoma Coast. The Van der Kamp family practices natural farming and non-invasive techniques, and with current plantings from 1952, this is one of California's oldest Pinot Noir Vineyards.

When our staff tasted this, we were wowed that the rich, full-bodied personality of this Pinot Noir was complimented by freshness, vibrancy, and floral aromatics. It's the best of both worlds, and even Wine Advocate critic Lisa Perrotti-Brown scored this at 92 points! Not convinced yet?...well, this wine typically sells for $50.00, but we have been able to secure a deal that lets us sell it for $34.95, that's a 30% discount! If you want a fuller-bodied Pinot Noir for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday...then look no further!

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Van Der Kamp Vineyard is scented of violets, chocolate covered cherries and black raspberries with notions of tilled soil and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied and packed with fragrant black and red fruits, it has a solid frame of fine-grained tannins and great freshness, finishing long and layered. 5,880 cases were made."

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "The 2016 Pinot Noir Van Der Kamp Vineyard is gracious and airy in the glass, with lovely aromatic complexity and less overt fruit than is found in many of the other wines in the range. Readers should expect a gracious, understated style. Here, too, my impression is that the wine will be even better in another few months, once the whole clusters assimilate into the wine more fully."

JEB DUNNUCK 91 POINTS - "From a site on Sonoma Mountain and old vines going back to the 1960s, the 2016 Pinot Noir Van der Kamp Vineyard gives up some blue fruits, plums, candied violets and cedary notes, medium body, fine tannin, and a fresh, lively profile. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years."
