Wine Review: This wine was my second favorite wine that I tried from the Siduri portfolio. This bright ruby wine opens with a slightly dusty light black cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, smooth, with nicely integrated acidity. There are rich raspberry flavors with just a touch of spice. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins sail on for quite some time. Pair this gem of a wine with grilled salmon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Keefer Ranch is always one of our richest, but also most complex, Pinot Noirs. This is attributable to numerous factors, including the outstanding job that Marcy & Craig do in farming the vineyard, the cool Green Valley (western Russian River Valley) growing conditions, and the multitude of clones that we purchase and blend together. In fact, it is the unique clonal combination that makes this vineyard truly stand out. In 2006 we were extremely selective in which barrels made it into the cut for the final wine. By blending together these different clones we are able to showcase the floral nature of Clone 23, while also giving the wine some of the herbal characteristics from the whole cluster fermentation on the Pommard clone. The wine was aged in 83% new French oak and bottled, without fining or filtration in September of 2007.
