Russian River Valley, CaliforniaVERY LIMITED! DuMOL Pinot Noir is a superb Pinot Noir wine gem from 7 top vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Winemaker Andy Smith is one of the most gifted and charismatic of a new generation of sophisticated Chardonnay and Pinot Noir specialists. Andy's stock-in-trade is intense Burgundian Chardonnays -- offering deep, mineral flavor with great texture and wonderful balance -- and Pinot Noirs of uncommon depth and complexity. Part of the secret is his winemaking regimen, which includes extended fermentations to enhance aromatics; elevage with a high percentage of solids, but with limited lees stirring; and no fining or filtration. But the real keys to the transcendent quality of DuMOL's wines are Andy's gift for blending sites, clones, and maturity levels to achieve chromatic diversity ... and, of course, the fruit, which is farmed under his control in Green Valley, the coolest part of the Russian River Valley. Only 3770 cases produced.DuMOL Pinot Noir is bright garnet red with beautifully pure aromas of ripe red cherry then darker wild berry with a subtle grassy rhubarb edge. It opens with cranberry freshness and intense raspberry then deeper kirsch notes with a licorice/sassafras edge. The wine has a supple mid-palate that is harmonious and remains focused and lively despite the building richness. Complex savory elements build toward a spicy/peppery finish. It was aged 11 months in 40% new French oak barrels then 3 months settling in tank. Serve at 60 degrees to fully experience the wine's deft balance of freshness and richness.Enjoy DuMOL Pinot Noir Russian River Valley with roast pork, grilled salmon, veal Milanese and aged cheeses.
