Right in step with the rest of its mates as far as concentration and depth are concerned, DuMOL's Estate Pinot is charged with an extra spark of enlivening acidity that presently brings a bit of finishing tartness. That said, the wine is generously filled with optimally ripe cherries, impressively layered and decked out with a full sweep of sweet oak, and, while it tightens up at the end, it is limited by nothing more than youth and may prove to be the longest-lived wine of the bunch.
Bright red. Deeper and darker in character than the Aidan, displaying black raspberry and cherry qualities and notes of licorice and black tea. Then brighter in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of bitter cherry pit. Impressively focused pinot with strong finishing cut and persistent spiciness.
Still young and unevolved, the 2008 Pinot Noirs are restrained and slightly less impressive and concentrated than the 2007s at a similar age. They all appear to have outstanding potential...The 2008s are softer than the 2007s. The heat spikes that occurred in September appear to have given these wines a more forward, plump style without the definition and minerality found in the 2007s. I will wait until the wines are in bottle to provide more extensive tasting notes. (Barrel Tasting)
