Dumol Russian River Valley Wester Reach Pinot Noir 2019
Winemaker's Notes
This debut of "Wester Reach" Pinot Noir comprises some of the most famous sites in Russian River Valley, vineyards that we have planted, farmed and harvested over the past twenty years. By selecting fruit from a spectrum of vineyards - from the interior plains of the Russian River Valley stretching west to our more coastal sites - we created a wine that is complete, complex and finely detailed. We build this blend in the vineyard, understanding how each site contributes signature fruit character, be it the richness and breadth of our valley floor parcels, the taut precision and structure of our ridgeline parcels, or the focus and intensity of our coastal parcels.

From the Laguna Ridge district, the iconic Ritchie Vineyard provides succulent dark fruit and broad texture. On the deeper clay soils of the Santa Rosa Plains, the Occidental Road vineyard contributes density, fruit extract and weight. At a higher elevation, on a ridgetop overlooking the Green Valley, our Dutton-Upp Road site offers soaring red and black fruit aromatics and hillside structure while the Widdoes Vineyard brings cherry fruit intensity and an underbrush complexity. Further westward, our high-density DuMOL Estate unites this complex range with dark fruit intensity, herbal freshness and earthy intricacy.

Complex, layered aromas - red cherry, black pepper, hibiscus and orange peel - are wonderfully bright and fresh while cranberry and pomegranate, wild thyme and underbrush lend fine detail. The broad fruit entry possesses great lift - juicy and vibrant, then immediately deep and layered. The mid-palate is succulent and round with cherry liqueur and rhubarb flavors which extend on fresh acidity through the long, black peppercorn-infused finish. Drink between 2021 and 2029.- Andy Smith, Winemaker

Critical Acclaim:

96 points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Dark oak and spice notes fill the entry of this impressive wine, showing clove and stem on the way to structured tannin. Substantial structure is on offer, in addition to complexity. The wine richly balanced and rewarding in black cherry, tea and forest."

94 points - Decanter:
"Very promising, positively restrained nose of wild berries with floral lift. An ambitious dry style with high acidity and fine tannins."

93 points - Wine Spectator:
"Fine-grained, powerful and well-spiced, with floral accents to the raspberry and cherry flavors that are backed by fresh acidity. The juicy finish lingers with rich minerality and hints of white pepper."
