Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

As for the 2005 Pinot Noir Finn, this is another impeccably well-made wine, revealing a slightly darker ruby hue to it than its siblings. Displaying notes of sassafras, black fruit such as currant, and deep, very ripe raspberries, the wine is full-bodied and rich, with terrific acidity and a smoky meatiness on the palate.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($80) Deep red. Sexy raspberry and strawberry preserve aromas are fresh and incisive. Pure, cool red berry flavors stain the palate but are zesty and almost weightless. Spiciness builds with air and carries into the finish. A suave, graceful style of pinot, with admirable finishing cut and superb persistence.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Rich, focused, intense and concentrated, with layers of plum, blackberry and wild berry fruit that has a pretty, spicy floral edge. Well-structured, with firm tannins.

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.
