Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2005 Syrah Eddie's Patch has really turned out beautifully since I tasted it a year ago. Huge color (opaque purple to the rim) with an extraordinary nose of frying bacon, roasted meats, licorice, tapenade, and blackberry, the wine is dense, full-bodied, broodingly backward, with super purity, and stunning length and richness. It is hard to know how this wine will age, but it is certainly a fabulous Syrah that should drink well for at least 5-8 years if not longer.

This riveting Syrah is rich, intense and focused, with tiers of flavor built around a generous core of spicy wild berry, black cherry, pepper and beef notes. The flavors weave together from start to finish, making this remarkably complex.

($76) Inky ruby color. Vibrant dark berry, violet, pepper and smoked meat aromas. Sweet, sappy and pliant, with a suave, creamy texture and deep blackberry and blackcurrant flavors complicated by floral pastille and black pepper. This could only be syrah. Finishes with excellent clarity, lift and length, with the sweet blackberry quality repeating. (JR)

Very dark red, opaque. Wonderful nose, subtle but nice fruit and pepper notes. Great mouth feel, nice structure and tannin, good amount of fruit. Short to medium finish that is the only let down of this fantastic wine.

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: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
