*Two Stars* While touches of toast and faintly minerally back notes afford this one a bit of personality of its own, the wine's principal achievements of concentration, fruity depth and incisive varietal focus clearly place it in the DuMOL family. It is, as are its mates, a full and fleshy Pinot with richness to spare, and it will never be accused of being shy or retiring, but neither is it at all overdone in any way and it is remarkably well-composed for the ample wine that it is. It joins its companions in promising plenty with age, and, as good as it is now, it will be that much better when it reaches its eighth anniversary. 2/3 Stars Score
Leans on a crutch of cedary, toasty oak, but the core of juicy berry, floral and anise flavors is spot-on. Well-focused, balanced and ready for a short stay in the cellar. Drink now through 2022. 290 cases made.
The 2014 Pinot Noir Eoin Sonoma Stage Vineyard is a wild, powerful wine. The inclusion of 33% whole clusters gives the wine its distinctive savory profile. Red cherry, scorched earth, tobacco, game and smoke give the wine its decidedly dark, brooding personality. That element of burliness is reinforced by slightly coarse tannins and a rough around the edges feel. I expect the Eoin will come around, but it will be a few years before that happens. (AG)
