Dumol Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2002
A deep ruby-red color leads to deep toned aromas of cassis, violet, truffle and smoke. The palate is dark and penetrating with dense black fruit extract, dried thyme, game nuances and brighter sweet red berries. The backward structure is tightly wound and currently clamps down on full mid-palate textural development. Yet the integration of fruit, oak influence and structure is in the early stages of harmonizing. I suggest trying a single bottle on release to gauge your enjoyment level but advise cellaring for 3 to 4 years to allow the wine to fully integrate and realize its true potential.
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.
