Professional Reviews For This Wine

Vinfolio | Rating: 93

The wine shows a mantle of beautiful ruby color with a nose of sassafras, spice, black cherry, cola and violets. The palate is ripe and smooth showing excellent extraction of black cherry, licorice and spice. The finish hints of smoke and java.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90-93

The 2004 Pinot Noir Russian River is a blend of six different cool climate vineyards. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by scents of plums, allspice, forest floor, and sassafras. With good acidity, medium to full body, and considerable ripeness, structure, and definition, it should drink well for 5-6 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Very charming, supple and harmonious, with layers of plum, black cherry and raspberry fruit that's fresh and refreshing. Finishes with a burst of dark fruit flavors, turning delicate.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($56) Good full red. Very ripe aromas of strawberry, smoke and earth.Broad and ripe but fairly dry, with red berry flavors enlivened by tangy acidity. Initially came off as slightly dry on the finish, with fine tannins, but showed sweeter red fruit flavors and suppler tannins with aeration.

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.
