The 2010 Siduri Clos Pepe Vineyard Pinot Noir is full of dark berries, spice, and plum flavors. Rich and concentrated, with more tannins than many of the 2010 Pinot Noirs, this wine certainly is approachable enough now to have with a meal, but truly is one that will improve with some time in the cellar.
Marked by a burst of ripe, juicy, vivid wild berry and blueberry flavors, this is firm at points, fleshy at others, tightening on the finish, where a subtle wet rock taste emerges, imparting a subtle aftertaste. Drink now through 2021.
The wine's natural acidity, purity of texture and gentleness automatically make you think of food. Flavorwise, it's all about raspberries and cherries, cured meat, cola, spices and smoky oak. It's delicious to drink now with a great steak, roasted lamb or grilled tuna.
A great wine to end this tasting with, the 2010 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe wraps around the palate with juicy dark red fruit, spices, flowers and mint. There is a juicy, expressive quality to the fruit that is highly appealing. This is a fabulous Clos Pepe, considering so many 2010s from this site are wilted, tired and heavily marked by the heat spikes. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2026.
