The 2013 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard is one of the more precise, delineated wines in the range this year. Brisk and chiseled to the core, the 2013 offers lovely translucence, expressive aromatics and sculpted fruit. Give the 2013 another few years in bottle. (AG)
The 2013 Pinot Noir Ryan comes from a 28-year-old Martini Pinot Noir selection that was planted in 1981 in the Widdoes Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. This wine displays greater ripeness and richness, with some notes of fresh mushrooms intermixed with blackcurrant and black cherry. It is the ripest and most concentrated of the Pinot Noirs and long. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. (RP)
*Two Stars* Sporting a full measure of concentrated, optimally ripened black cherry fruit that is overlain by a careful veneer of creamy, slightly toasty oak, DuMOL's "ryan" is a deep, relatively full-bodied Pinot that shows great continuity and steady focus. It firms and takes on a slight touch of tannic toughness after a supple, near-velvety entry, and it wants very much for a few years of smoothing. It has the substance and structure to argue strongly for at least mid-term cellaring, and it should remain vital and rich beyond its tenth birthday.
