Leading off the Pinot Noirs, the 2016 Pinot Noir Wester Reach is one of the releases that only goes out to distribution and isn’t offered on the mailing list. It’s a textbook wine from this estate and is ideal for readers looking to understanding the style of this estate. Wild strawberry, violets, and forest floor aromas and flavors, medium body, light tannin, and a charming, layered, balanced style all make for a brilliant Russian River Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 4-5 years.
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Wester Reach sings of ripe black cherries, red plums, red currants and cranberry sauce with touches of violets, cinnamon stick, spearmint and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with tantalizing red and black berry layers with a satiny texture and oodles of freshness, finishing long and earthy. (LPB)
DuMOL’s long-production Pinot is the one we see on restaurant lists, and while it is not offered at an everyday price, it is one of the most interesting wines on those lists. It is very much on point from beginning to end with its ripe red cherry fruit and its rich, creamy oak overlays. It is supple even now and fairly full in body with background notes of spice for added breadth and range. Its latter-palate tannins come as little surprise and offer no problem at the dinner table.
The 2016 Pinot Noir Wester Reach is a classic Russian River Pinot built on forward fruit and raciness, but in a mid-weight style that tempers some of the natural exuberance of the Russian River. Sweet red/purplish berry fruit, spice, cola and floral notes are nicely lifted in this very pretty, open-knit Pinot from Du Mol. Drink this fruity, Pinot over the next handful of years. (AG)
