Du Mol Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright garnet red. Beautifully pure aromas of ripe red cherry then darker wild berry with a subtle grassy rhubarb edge. Opens with cranberry freshness and intense raspberry then deeper kirsch notes with a licorice/sassafras edge. Supple mid-palate that is harmonious and remains focused and lively despite the building richness. Complex savory elements build toward a spicy/peppery finish. Serve at 60 degrees to fully experience the wine’s deft balance of freshness and richness.

A very 'proud' wine. Not arrogant, but in the mouth, let's you know that it has arrived. A perfect blend of power and elegance, depth and nuance, adagio and crescendo. A stunning wine.

A delightful Pinot that can enchant my friends who are hardcore Cab drinkers. It is rich and complex but melts deliciously on the back of your tongue. It's a perfect combo of rock star and librarian.

Vintage and Tasting notes: If we take the deep fruitiness of 2012 and blend it with the cool fragrance of 2011, you have an approximation of how I regard our 2013 Pinot wines. It’s a vintage that tends to the elegant savory side of the variety in coastal Sonoma, with wonderful elevated aromatic complexity. Like any great wine our 2013 RRV Pinot takes time to open up in the glass. Complexity builds as air goes to work on the individual elements, gradually bringing the whole wine into focus. The wine progresses through multiple stages so that each time you return to the glass, there’s something new to discover. Initially bright, juicy and red-fruited, as the wine continues to open, darker notes emerge and blend with the varied vineyard-driven non-fruit components. The bottle’s final glass is opulent, layered and full-flavored yet always fresh and vibrant. I strongly suggest you decant the wine for an hour in its youth and estimate the wine is a good candidate for seven to ten years of improvement in bottle. Classic coastal hi-toned Pinot aromas: Bing cherry, fresh strawberry jam, rose petal, complex grassy/herbal elements, anise and evergreen. Real beauty to the wine, subtle and tightly coiled. Expands, darkens and deepens in the glass – violet, black tea and black cherry. Volume builds with layers of flavor and texture. Crisp apple skin finish with lingering bergamot complexity. - Andy Smith, Winemaker - Viticulturist

The 2011 Pinot Noir is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Floral and savory the 2011 wraps around the palate with sweet red berries cranberries spices and tobacco. The 2011 is an excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years and a fabulous introduction to the DuMol Pinots. Antonio Galloni.

The beautiful 2011 Pinot Noir Russian River a nine vineyard blend was made from four clonal selections the Dijon Swan Mt. Eden and Calera clones.

This medium to full-bodied velvety textured lush heady evolved Pinot was aged 11 months on its lees in 35% new French oak. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. - Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The entry-level 2010 Pinot Noir is big juicy and exuberant. There is no shortage of fruit in this flashy Pinot. The 2010 is a terrific effort considering its production of 4 600 cases. It is ideally enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Despite leaning to ripeness in its initial aromas this wine comes with plenty of black cherry fruit in tow and adds in distinct oaky richness and a quiet walnut-like note. It is medium-full-bodied in palate weight and turns out to be lighter on its feet than first impressions seem to advise and its near-supple texture and nicely crafted fruit hold it in good stead through to a balanced mid-depth finish.
