Dumol Russian River Syrah

This is a spectacular vintage for Russian River Syrah, as great as ever seen and this is DuMOL's finest RRV Syrah bottling since its 2006 counterpart. The wine is very much driven by its aromatic power and intensity it smells so alive it's really quite staggering. The aromas are constantly changing; morphing each time you return to the glass that's the sign of a great wine it's multidimensional.

Four of the six vineyard components are steep east-facing hillside vineyard sites that have great impact on the wine. Their vines absorb the gentle morning sun but their steepness moderates the harsher afternoon heat and this brings great character to the wine. The final two sites are very cool climate vineyards - Syrah planted in Pinot territory and these bring elegance, texture and fruit purity to the blend.

This is a wine that will age into something truly spectacular. At bottling the floral aromas dominated, but expect the meaty side of Syrah to gradually assert itself over the next few years as is typical with cool climate Syrah. For all its intensity and chewy concentration, however, the wine is always nimble and agile with great acidity on the long spicy, peppery finish. Don't miss this great bottling!


Critical Acclaim

CG92

Connoisseurs' Guide - "Generous and intensely spicy in tone with solid blackberry, gamy and black pepper credentials to its aromas, this full-bodied, tightly constructed wine comes with both depth and structure to spare. Its ripeness plays second fiddle to its fruit, and its flavors, despite their volume, have yet to begin their inevitable unwinding into greater layering and accessibility. At every turn, this exceptionally balanced effort sets strength upon strength and impresses that its only need is time in the bottle."

WS90

Wine Spectator - "Firm, intense and chewy, at points rustic and edgy, this manages to deliver a tight, potent, concentrated mix of dried berry, pomegranate, black licorice and cedar flavors. Ends with gritty tannins.
