Made from four stellar sites within the appellation, this stunning wine shows rich red and blue fruit. Spice and forest floor tones intertwine alongside firm, supple tannins and balanced acidity, finishing with impressive length and intensity. (VB)
DuMol’s highest volume Pinot Noir is a fairly deep, balanced, firm yet accessible, effort made from a blending of four vineyards. It might have turned out to be just another generalized blend, but that is not the case here. Rather, the wine has both the focus and the depth that one expects from the better Russian River Valley bottlings. It does suggest that it might drink a bit sooner than DuMOL’s single vineyard bottlings, yet it has the structure and the solid fruit to ask that a half decade and more of patient cellaring be considered.
The 2017 Pinot Noir Wester Reach is a gorgeous entry-level wine in this range from DuMol. Joyous and exuberant, with terrific purity of fruit, the 2017 is a real stand out. Crushed red berry, wild flowers and sweet spice all race from the glass in a Pinot that offers so much allure. The aromatics and sweetness here are so alluring. This is a real stand-out. Vineyard sites are the Estate, Dutton, Occidental Road and Widdoes. (AG)
Incredibly aromatic and complex, the 2017 Pinot Noir Wester Reach offers loads of spiced red fruits, incense, wood smoke, and forest floor notes as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, focused, yet still pleasure bent style. It's a classic DuMol Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 5-7 years. This cuvée comes all from the Russian River Valley, from multiple clones, and spent a year in 40% new French oak.
The 2017 Pinot Noir Wester Reach is pale to medium ruby with cranberry, crushed black cherry, woodsmoke, oolong tea leaves and pipe tobacco on the nose with notes of earth, strawberry and cola. The light to medium-bodied palate offers a great interplay of spicy fruits and earthy character, with seamlessly woven grainy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long and spicy with loads of energy. Give this another year or two in bottle. (EB)
Plush and well-spiced, with a vibrant, juicy core of dark cherry, plum and raspberry flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins and firm acidity. Notes of slate and hints of white pepper show on the structured finish. (KM)
