DuMol Estate Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Black cherry, game, smoke, licorice and earthy notes all give the 2017 Pinot Noir DuMol Estate Vineyard its distinctive dark, savory personality. The 2017 is not especially forthcoming. I don't think time will change that much. My impression is that the 2017 will always remain dark, savory and searingly tannic.
The 2017 Pinot Noir DuMol Estate Vineyard is more earthy and savory, with a concentrated, foursquare style that's going to benefit from short-term cellaring. Notes of black cherries, bouquet garni, earth, and chocolate all define the bouquet, and it has building tannins, a great mid-palate, and impressive length.
