Sierra Mar is one of the highest altitude vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Its elevation paired with thin soils produces low yields of intense fruit. Winemakers Adam Lee and Matt Revelette used a bit of whole cluster grapes in the blend to create tiers of flavor. Aromas of rose petals, cranberry, raspberry and sandalwood evolve on the palate into a creamy, soft sip with plum and mulberry fruit. Another glass? Yes, please.
Siduri specializes in producing cool-climate Pinot Noir from six major appellations along the West Coast, stretching from the Willamette Valley in Oregon, down to California’s Santa Barbara County. Since the winery’s founding in 1994, their goal remains the same, to produce Pinot Noir that best captures the distinct flavor and character of a given vineyard site. To that end, they source only from vineyards that provide exceptional fruit.
