Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2008 Syrah Eddies Patch, which includes one-third whole clusters, displays a dark purple color, terrific texture and notes of camphor, pepper, roasted meats and abundant blackberry and cassis fruit. This inky Syrah possesses superb intensity and richness, but sadly, it will undoubtedly be difficult to sell. Go figure!

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(+?)

Inky ruby. Dark berries, candied licorice, minerals and black olive on the nose. Medium-bodied and bright in the mouth, with taut blackberry and bitter cherry flavors complicated by tar, minerals and violet pastille. Gains flesh and weight with air and closes on a sweet floral note, with excellent length. This looks like it will need more patience than the Finn.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Firm, intense and peppery, with complex dried berry, mineral, tobacco and sage flavors. Full-bodied, yet light on its feet, even delicate, ending with supple 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: 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.
