Winemaker Notes: ”This beautiful, lilting, dynamic wine is the essence of coastal Russian River Pinot Noir. The wine’s aromas and flavors encompass the entire spectrum of red and black fruits, savory spices, and earthy undertones: black cherry, wild berries, dried thyme, orange zest, sandalwood, and black tea. The palate is supple, broad, and lively, flowing seamlessly to a crunchy vibrant finish with rising red-mineral lift and silky structure. Drink from Summer 2021 to 2030.”
Wine Enthusiast 96 Points: “Dark oak and spice notes fill the entry of this impressive wine, showing clove and stem on the way to structured tannin. Substantial structure is on offer, in addition to complexity.The wine richly balanced and rewarding in black cherry, tea and forest.”
Tasting Notes: “Incredibly aromatic and complex, the 2019 Dumol Wester Reach Pinot Noir offers loads of spiced red fruits, incense, wood smoke, and forest floor notes as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, focused, yet still pleasure bent style. It’s a classic DuMol Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 5-7 years. This cuvée comes all from the Russian River Valley, from multiple clones, and spent a year in 40% new French oak.
