Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant deep dark red. Layered red and black fruits: cherry, black raspberry then dried herb, earth, anise, an edge of iron. Very serious concentrated wine – packed with mineral extract. Strong soil component, broad dense black fruits. Texture comes out with air, increasingly supple, but then explosive finish. Quite savory – good acid backbone. Drink between 2014 and 2024.
My Notes:

About DuMOL:

DuMOL's 25 acre sustainably farmed Estate Vineyard is located on an undulating east-facing slope of one of the appellation's famous ridgelines. From this classic site and in tandem with some of the coastal area's finest growers, DuMOL crafts wines that fully capture the aromatics, flavors and textures that exemplify their vineyard sites and varietals character in the purest and most precise form.
