  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    More backward than the 2010 Pinot Noir Finn , the 2010 Pinot Noir DuMol Estate exhibits notes of strawberry and cherry jam, a floral and damp, composty, foresty character, medium to full body, and a deep, rich, moderately tannic style. It will benefit from another 6-12 months of bottle age, and should drink well for at least a decade.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    (55% new oak): Saturated ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of cherry-cola, licorice and incense, with a spicy note adding vivacity. Broad and intensely flavored, offering palate-staining dark fruit flavors and an energizing lick of blood orange. Chewy and focused on the impressively long finish, which features dusty tannins and clinging dark berry character.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

    Tightly wound, with touches of spicy cherry, raspberry, fresh earth and cigar box. Complete, balanced and clean on the finish.

  • 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.
