2016 Siduri Pinot Noir Parsons' Vineyard
The Parsons Vineyard is in the Santa Rosa Plain section of the Russian River Valley. This area is just west of the winery and is characterized by compact soils full of clay and rather flat topography. None of which sounds particularly great for high quality Pinot Noir. However, over the years the Parsons Vineyard has seemingly defied our preconceived notions and produced one of our top Pinot Noirs virtually every vintage. The 2016 vintage is no exception as it has once again provided us with one of the more compelling examples of classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
