K&L Notes

The 2009 DuMol Estate Russian River Pinot Noir consists of fruit entirely from DuMol's estate vineyard, which is planted to Swan, Calera, Pommard, 667 & 77 Pinot Noir clones. The grapes were hand-harvested and the wine fermented with native yeasts, undergoing natural malolactic fermentation before being aged for fifteen months in 55% new French oak barrels. Winemaker Andy Smith writes: "This 'aroma potential' is never more apparent than in this new estate bottling-the wine just leaps out of the glass at you, but not in a clumsy full throttle way. Rather it's elegant, stylish and quite beguiling … This really hits the high notes and progresses into rarified territory among its Californian Pinot peers." The nose leads with high-toned red berry and earth spice aromas and flavors, opening up to reveal, darker, brambly fruit and more savory notes with air. The palate is layered and complex, with brilliant acidity lifting an inner core of concentrated fruit and earthy spice. Enjoy over the next decade.
