Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard has a rather subdued, earthy nose of fungi and fallen leaves over red and black cherries and a waft of lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate is built like a brick house with a solid frame of grainy tannins and lively acid holding the muscular fruit together beautifully, and texturing the long, earthy finish. It needs another 1-2 years in bottle and should cellar for 12+ years thereafter. (LPB)
DuMol's 2014 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard comes across as quite understated today. Floral and savory notes are nicely pushed forward, while the fruit seems a bit attenuated and in the background. The 2014 needs time to unwind, as the elements aren't fully put together today. Pipe tobacco, herb, dried flowers notes and crushed rose petals are some of the many nuances that meld into the finish.

Begins with a surge of vibrant, racy wild berry, cherry and blueberry flavors, made lively by gripping tannins and refreshing acidity. Tightens on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2024. (JL)
It is impossible to find fault with any of the 2014 DuMOL Pinots and the differences between them are small. This particular wine may win a little less favor now for its slight lack of polish and poise when compared to its mates, but, these minor caveats noted, it is a deep and well-filled working that needs but a bit of bottle time before finding the refinement and coherence that patience is bound to bring. Its endorsement comes with no need to invoke the benefit of doubt because we have no doubts about where it is headed and, if a couple of years are sure to make a positive difference, another half-dozen should do so even more. *One Star*
