Winemaker Notes

Traditionally the most concentrated and powerfully opulent Pinot of each vintage, the 2008 finn release gracefully combines the crunchy red fruited nature of the vintage with all the layered complexity, density and succulence that typifies this bottling and sets it apart from all, but a few of the finest Pinots each vintage. The 943 clone's clusters and berries are unusually small for Pinot - heightening the structure and palate weight of the resulting wine - and yet we are able to harvest the vines at low sugar due to the moderate amount of fruit each vine carries. We found that this small lot brought an element of dark penetrating fruit to the wine in addition to fresh acidity and some focused tannin on the finish and are so impressed with the vineyard block that we envision it becoming an integral component for the Finn bottling each year.

The style of this vintage's release is slightly more forward than the 2007 and will therefore drink well from a year after release for at least eight to ten years.

Critical Acclaim

CG 94
Connoisseurs' Guide

Deep, well-ripened and long on both concentrated cherry-like fruit and very sweet oak, this flamboyant Pinot is a wonderfully rich expression of what DuMOL does best. For all of its opulence it is not in the least heavy or overdone, and it shows impeccable balance for the very big working that it is. It is a wine of serious intent, and it will reward aging for those that manage to resist its considerable charms, and it comes with the recommendation of three to five years of patience.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Bright ruby-red. Captivating aromas of candied red fruits, rose oil, gingerbread and licorice. Rich but silky in texture and light on its feet, with alluring flavors of wild red and dark berries, mocha and candied flowers. Complex and precise on the finish, which lingers with outstanding persistence.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Pinot Noir Finn’s medium ruby color is followed by sweet berry fruit, damp earth, cola, herb and rhubarb aromas. Slightly lean with an impressively restrained yet structured style, it is not as extroverted as the Aidan, but is richer and more impressive than the Ryan. It should drink well for 5-7 years.
