  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Bright deep red. Explosive aromas of red cherry, raspberry and nutty oak. Juicy, dense and sweet, with a flavor of raspberry concentrate. Very strong fruit here. Tannins are substantial and broad. Will merit a 90-plus rating if it develops more complexity with time in bottle.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Starts with fresh sage and bay leaf notes, picking up ripe, lush cherry, currant and earthy flavors nicely framed by chewy tannins, but the finish sails on with complex flavors. 491 cases made.

    The 1999 Pinot Noir offers aromas of jammy black cherries, smoke, earth, and oak. It is dense, full-bodied, and complete, with a sumptuous texture. It should drink well for 4-5 years.

  • The 25-acre biodynamically farmed DuMOL Estate Vineyard is located on an undulating east-facing slope of one of Russian River Valley's most famous ridgelines. From this classic site, and in tandem with some of the coastal area's finest growers, DuMOL crafts wines that fully capture the aromatics, flavors, and textures that exemplify their vineyard sites and the varietal characteristics in the purest and most precise form.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
