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
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
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.
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+.
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.
Good deep red. Very ripe aromas of raspberry, strawberry and chocolatey oak. Sweet, sappy and flavorful, with lovely pinot tang. Fairly intense flavors of red berries, mocha, sassafras and spices. Finishes ripely tannic and persistent.
This Pinot strikes a wonderful balance between ripe, fleshy, complex wild berry, raspberry, sage and fresh earth, alluring for both its thrust of flavors and subtle mix of loamy earth and berry flavors. Ends with sage and anise touches that are teasi... Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2007 Dumol Pinot Noir Ryan Green Valley 750ml
