Dumol Ryan Pinot Noir Dutton Widdoes Vineyard 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): The 2011 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard hits the palate with a blast of dark red fruit. Intensity and power are the hallmarks, while subtlety and nuance take more of a back seat, at least today. Deeply expressive spiced notes wrap around the big finish. In 2011, the Ryan is a wine of impact... Drink: 2014-2021. (Feb 2014) <

Supple graceful and layered showing spicy plum black cherry strawberry and tea flavors with medium weight and a persistent finish. Drink now through 2019.

Keenly defined with lots of very pure ripe-cherry fruit partnered with sweet oak and accented by a scant touch of cocoa this generous and rather forthright Pinot is a little more obvious and slightly less nuanced than its mates but it wants for nothing in the way of richness or depth. It is supple and fleshy with the balance to keep and it may find a little more complexity if it is allowed to rest for another three or four years. Connoisseurs Guide.

The 2010 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard has a certain heaviness to it that I personally find less interesting than some of the other wines in the range. The fruit is boisterous and rich but there is quite a bit less in the way of energy minerality or tension. By just about any other producer

The 2002 Pinot Noir Russian River reveals Morey-St.-Denis-like forest floor, plum, cherry, and cola characteristics, medium to full body, soft, sweet fruit, good underlying acidity, and loads of complexity as well as personality. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Elegantly styled, with a supple, fleshy entry. Creamy wild berry and black cherry fruit caresses the palate, with a long, integrated aftertaste that's tightly focused. Drink now through 2008.

My highest score goes to the 2007 Pinot Noir Finn, which comes from the Occidental, Widdoes, and Sonoma State vineyards. A brilliant, juicy, succulent effort, it boasts a terrific full-bodied texture, layers of black cherry, raspberry, and cola aromas and flavors, a dark ruby/purple color, and a backward yet irresistible style. This big, rich Pinot Noir is capable of lasting 15-20 years.

From the Widdoes and Avid vineyards, the 2007 Pinot Noir Ryan is made from the Martini clone as well as several Dijon clones. It reveals foresty/autumnal characteristics intermixed with notes of raspberries, black cherries, cola, and spice box. Full-bodied and rich, along with the Finn, it is the biggest, most concentrated of these Pinots. It should be drinkable in 2-3 years, and will last for 15+.
