Dumol Syrah Russian River Valley 2009
Saturated purple color; dense and concentrated ripe dark fruits – blackberry and cassis with menthol, dried herb, tapenade, mineral and iron tones. Maintains floral elegance and lifted aromatic character. Bright red fruit entry, lighter than the nose suggests, then dark fruit compote but not heavy or too forward, truffle notes, pepper, thyme and sage. Rich tannins round out the finish and aromatic graphite notes linger.
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.
