At The Donum Estate we are dedicated to the pursuit of the ultimate Pinot Noir. With traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques, sensitive
farming practices and unwavering passion for this varietal, we strive for an intricate balance between elegance and intensity in our wine. It is an
expression of the exceptional terroir of our estate--the gift of the land.
Complex nose of ripe strawberries, leather, cherry liqueur, fresh split cedar, smoke, blackberries, sea salt and carbon. Rounded and broad mouth feel of seamless sweet black fruit, red currant and earth. This is a big pinot noir without being over the top.
"Medium ruby color; complex, deep earth and dark cherry aromas; rich, deep, complex dark cherry flavors with earthy and spicy notes; sweet oak; very silky, good structure and balance; long finish. Incredible silky texture and deep flavors mark this latest Pinot triumph from winemaker Kenneth Juhasz. Just plain delicious."
"Compact, but wonderfully ripe, juicy and pure, with an explosion of pomegranate, cherry, currant and raspberry flavors, which are accented with sage, cedar, spice and tea. Drink now through 2014."
"Pale garnet hue. Attractive bouquet of smoky bacon fat, tea, rhubarb and red licorice. Sweet, delicate flavors of cherry fruit with basil and fine-grain tannins. The sweetness lingers, yet the earthy character of the wine tempers the richness and balances the close."
The Wine News
"Lovely and lilting, like a cloud in a glass. Shows true Pinot essence in the silky texture and rich flavors of cherries, black raspberries, cola, mocha and pepper spice, firmed and toned with crisp Carneros acidity."
