Our 2018 Wester Reach Pinot Noir is a pure, highly detailed cool-climate Russian River Pinot from the greatest vintage of the last two decades. The vineyards comprising this blend are core sites of classic pedigree that we have either planted or farmed for over twenty years. There's lovely equilibrium to this wine, four distinct vineyards coming together seamlessly. Beautiful soaring aromas of blood orange and pomegranate darken to classic black cherry and raspberry. The deep entry expands along strong lines with good drive and detail to its red and black fruit flavors. Dark fruits and cherry compote lead the palate-great depth of flavor but always fresh and precise. Savory elements steer the wine toward complexity that will continue to build with age. As the wine opens in the glass, natural Russian River textures and volume takes hold-broad, supple and layered-bolstered by youthful acidity. The silky finish lingers long with vibrance and clarity. The wine is layered, textured and deep with pinpoint finesse and as vivid an expression of both region and vintage as one could imagine.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Wester Reach has a medium ruby color and a nose of cranberry sauce, blackberries, cinnamon stick, forest floor, black tea leaves and accents of potpourri. Made entirely with free-run juice, the medium-bodied palate bursts with juicy berry fruits, perfumed and fresh, finishing very long.

As with the Chardonnay, the 2018 Pinot Noir Wester Reach goes out to distribution only as opposed to being offered through the mailing list. As such, it's made in reasonable quantities, and there are 4,000 cases of the 2018. Lots of spice box, foresty, earthy notes, spring flowers, and a core of black raspberry fruit all give way to a more medium-bodied, elegant, silky wine that has no hard edges, ripe tannins, and the class to shine for 7-8 years. It's a beautiful wine as well as a terrific introduction into the wines of DuMOL.
