Du Mol Vineyards Pinot Noir 2010
Bright ruby red. Warm, inviting aromas draw you in: bright and lively then dark and complex. Wild cherry, fresh raspberry, sassafras and grilled meat. Complex tobacco and cocoa notes. Juicy palate entry then a fine interplay between red and black fruits. Black tea, cranberry and apple skin tartness. Darker woodsy-truffle notes. Broad silky texture develops with air but always framed by muscular enveloping tannins. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 92 points by California Grapevine.
Our 25 acre biodynamically farmed Estate Vineyard is located on an undulating eastfacing slope of one of the appellation's famous ridgelines. From this classic site and in tandem with some of our coastal area's finest growers, we craft wines that fully capture the aromatics, flavors and textures that exemplify their vineyard sites and varietals character in the purest and most precise form.
External Reviews for Du Mol Vineyards Pinot Noir
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.
