Dumol Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2008
Clear bright garnet red; multi layered aromas of cranberry and dried flowers becoming red and black cherry with a slight grassy black tea element. Crunchy red fruits dominate the palate entry with red apple skin notes that deepen to typical Green Valley raspberry and cola flavors. Youthful structure becomes suppler with aeration. Tea leaf and baking spice notes on the fresh savory finish. Will soften and broaden with age with a drinking window of 2012 through 2018.
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 Dumol Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Yet another superb bottling from this outstanding producer, its Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is compact and concentrated but is not the least bit overdone. It is fairly full in body, is supple and somewhat open in feel and has more than a little stuffing. While some may regard it as less than classic Russian River Pinot, others will appreciate that it is accessible now, deep and nicely complex in a manner that invites near-term drinking. It can age a bit as well and is sure to reward now or later.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Medium dark ruby red; delicate spring flower aromas deepen to violet, allspice and a note of tea leaf. Bright crunchy red fruits open the palate then darken to black raspberry, ripe plum and black cherry. Great purity of Pinot fruit with some richer gamey notes and a spicy sassafras edge. Intense flush of dark fruit on the chewy and flavor-packed extended finish. Beautifully combines concentration and elegance in this naturally forward vintage. Drink on release for its lovely freshness or cellar for 6 to 8 years for increasing richness.
