Winemaker's Notes

Deep rose color, quite dark and brilliant. Complex floral/herbal aromas: juniper, bay leaf, anise then wild berry sweetness, kirsch, sassafras and tobacco. Great power and dimension to the palate. Rich, but never soft - a lean dynamic power. Boysenberry, maple, cocoa then mint and game. Fine tannin-acid balancing act. Fresh orange zest on the finish. Drink between 2012 and 2020.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby. A heady bouquet of ripe red fruit and incense, complicated by intense mineral and floral nuances. Bright and energetic, offering sweet black raspberry and cola flavors that gain energy and spiciness in the glass. Tannins arrive late and are smoothly folded into this wine's sappy, concentrated fruit. Dense but lively, finishing with good clarity and length."
93 Points

"The 2010 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard has a certain heaviness to it that I personally find less interesting than some of the other wines in the range. The fruit is boisterous and rich, but there is quite a bit less in the way of energy, minerality or tension. By just about any other producer's standards, this would be a fabulous wine, but at DuMol the 2010 Ryan is only outstanding. "
92 Points

"Supple, graceful and layered, showing spicy plum, black cherry, strawberry and tea flavors, with medium weight and a persistent finish."
