Siduri, based in Santa Rosa, California, is expanding their reach into Oregon. Current releases include this excellent Willamette Valley blend and a quartet of single-vineyard offerings. This wine is spicy, lightly touched with chocolate/nougat candy bar flavors, and nicely balanced, with moderate alcohol and firm acids.
