2016 Siduri Pinot Noir Barbieri Vineyard
The Barbieri Vineyard is an amazing site. We purchased fruit from the Barbieri Vineyard almost 15 years ago. At that time the vineyard was planted to Zinfandel and produced a superb wine, although the vines were heavily virused. It was obvious that the vineyard needed to be replanted and, when the property sold it was replanted to Pinot Noir. Now, after some years (and another sale) we once again have access to this superb plot of land. Last year it seemed so different, walking rows that were once planted to head-trained vines and now were younger, vertical-shoot positioned vines.
