Dumol Ryan Pinot Noir Dutton Widdoes Vineyard 2011
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) <

External Reviews for Dumol Ryan Pinot Noir Dutton Widdoes Vineyard
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.
Supple graceful and layered showing spicy plum black cherry strawberry and tea flavors with medium weight and a persistent finish. Drink now through 2019.
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.
The ripe, concentrated 2002 Pinot Noir exhibits notes of black raspberries, plums, and figs in a medium-bodied, plush, expansively flavored format. With tremendous fruit, body, and depth, it is a sexy wine to drink during its first 3-4 years of life.
A seductive, luscious Pinot Noir in the making is the 2007 Pinot Noir Russian River. The good news is that there are 2,700 cases of this wine, which exhibits sweet plum and black cherry notes intermixed with forest floor, cloves, and spice. The wine is rich, fresh, medium to full-bodied, and long. This is a blend of five or so vineyards, and also a blend of not only Dijon clone material but also old California heritage clones such as the Martini, Calera, and Swan. This wine should drink nicely for 4-5 years.
