Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($78) Good medium red. Strong oak tones currently overshadow cherry and strawberry on the nose.Then supple and suave but initially rather subdued and lacking in real personality; seemed dried by oak and rather tannic.But this pinot exploded with aeration, gaining in richness and sweetness of fruit and showing impressive persistence.

Strong aromatic nose. Big and forward. This one reveals the strongest fruity cab character out of 6 pinot noir's we tasted. Good, rich, flavorful but lacks the great pinot elegance. It is more like flavors with power. this wont be your wine if you are expecting power without weight pinot noir. Although it tastes good, it's lacking a memorable and unique character. It kind of got buried in the background,

It was done in a stressful blind tasting setting. It is of a riper style. It actually gained complexity with time, with herbal note amongst black fruits. A better showing for Russian River that day.

This wine had a great start, with raspberry, black cherry, vanilla, and hazelnut blended beautifully on the nose. These flavors mixed with some interesting thyme and spice palate, and the first few sips were the pinnacle of balance - alcohol with acid, fruit, and tannin. After the fruit burned off though, the wines high PH burst onto the scene and led to an overpowering tartness in glasses 2 and 3.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
