On March 21, 2012, at 6:30, at Salt Creek Grill, Adam Lee of Siduri/Novy Wineries will conduct a wine and food pairing to benefit the SCV Boys & Girls Club.
Siduri is a highly-acclaimed Sonoma winery, focused on creating ultra-premium Pinot Noir. Robert Parker, the dean of wine critics, says of Siduri, “One of California’s top Pinot Noir producers. One of my favorite wineries.” Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator’s top columnist, describes Siduri as, “To taste Siduri is to taste some of the best Pinot Noir made in America today.” Wine Spectator sings the praises of the wines made by Adam and Diana Lee, owners and winemakers of Siduri. The magazine defines Siduri as “rich, full-bodied yet supple.” A review of ratings from the various critics reveals that Siduri always receives some of the highest marks for Pinots made anywhere in the world.
Leading the tasting will be Adam Lee. Adam came from Texas with a background in wine retailing but having never made wine before. He struck gold almost right away. As Wine Spectator says, “In a relatively short order, the Lees’ Siduri label has become a beacon for California Pinot Noir. Since debuting with the 1994 vintage, Siduri has earned classic and outstanding ratings on more than 40 percent of its wines.”
The Boys & Girls Club tasting, hosted by Carl and Terry Kanowsky, will feature several of Adam’s best Pinots, covering a wide price spectrum. Additionally, he will be pouring a few selections from the Novy label, which focuses on Rhone varietals such as Syrah. Greg Amsler and Tamra Levine of Salt Creek will be creating tailor-made dishes that will be served with each tasting. An added benefit to attending this event is that our guests not only will be enjoying tremendous wine expertly paired with fine cuisine, they can also use the occasion to bid on some one-of-a-kind items that Adam is donating, including private tastings with Adam and a complete flight of all of the Pinot Noirs currently offered by Siduri in a special presentation. Also unique to this event, the Kanowskys cover virtually all of the costs so that all of the money raised goes directly to helping the kids.
The cost is $75 now and $90 at the door. Tickets: (661) 254-3063.
