DuMOL Finn Pinot Noir 2004
Pinot Noir from Russian River, California
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Dark ruby red color. Profoundly complex nose of bright red berries, wild flowers and darker black cherry with an edge of dried herb and spice. The palate blends cassis, black raspberries and underbrush notes with great succulence and mid-palate definition. The back end is expansive yet lively with broad ripe tannin and a fresh violet/mineral finish.
"The brilliant 2004 Pinot Noir Finn reveals sweet black cherry, forest floor, and subtle mint and smoke aromas, a meaty richness, and broad, savory, full-bodied flavors. This stunning red should drink well for a decade."

International Wine Cellar
"Perfumed floral, raspberry and blackberry flavors are supple and polished, caressing the palate and finishing with a smooth burst of fruit."
