Winemaker Notes

Typical Widdoes Vineyard briary fruit-filled aromatics are spicy, dark, and pure: black raspberry and black cherry with licorice, orange peel, lilac, and fresh mint. Immediate palate intensity, a real thrust and drive to the wine’s flavors. Wild berry, sweet thyme, anise, and a mineral freshness run through the wine, expanding to succulent layers of dark fruit, plush and deep with great nuance and detail. Long savory, mouthwatering finish. Wonderful clarity of flavor.

Our new release of Ryan is one of the finest bottlings we have ever produced from this pedigreed vineyard that stretches all the way back in history to 1996. It ranks alongside — or even just ahead of — the great Ryan bottlings of 2002 and 2005. The season’s historically low crop yield produced a wine that offers a rare blend of depth, intensity, and concentration — never heavy or clumsy, instead poised, vibrant, and nuanced. This is classical Pinot Noir!

I’m particularly drawn to the level of detail in the wine — it’s a combination of many delicate nuances, all gently and seamlessly layered together so you sense that there’s nothing lost from the vineyard to the bottle. This is a wine I will enjoy patiently over the next fifteen years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Ryan reveals complex scents of red and black cherries, black raspberries and red plums with hints of garrigue, lavender, mossy bark and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is densely packed with red and black fruits, supported with a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long.

DuMOL Winery Video

Founded in 1996, DuMOL is a vineyard focused producer of cool-climate Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah, and Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from exceptional vineyards. They are a “vineyard up” winery with a fully integrated approach to winegrowing and winemaking. Working intimately with their many unique sites — some for more than two decades — they strive to present the purest essence of the vineyard and vintage. At 3,630 vines per acre, DuMOL’s estate parcels in the Russian River Valley are among the most densely planted vineyards in North America. 

Winemaker, viticulturist and partner, Andy Smith, has been at the helm of DuMOL’s continuous evolution since 1999. He and his close-knit team of three employ winemaking that is classical and intuitive, responsive to the needs of each wine, with the least “technique” necessary. Andy explains, “Each bottling is built in the vineyard. Soil types, microclimates, plant material, maturity levels, how the vines react to the growing conditions, how we react to the vines – there are so many detailed variables. The nuance, the depth and complexity of the fruit that results from those variables, that’s what we aim to achieve and translate to bottle: purity, vibrancy, freshness – intensity without heaviness.”  

DuMOL has held the core principle, since inception, to be responsible stewards for their surrounding environment both in their vineyards and in their winemaking. Built in 2008, their winery was the first “green” facility in the Windsor township, 100% solar powered and utilizing a bioreactor system to reduce all waste water impact from winery processing activities to below that of a single-family household. Beyond its environmental considerations, the winery was strategically designed by Andy Smith to optimize the vinification of DuMOL’s many individual wine lots with custom small-lot fermentation tanks to include a Tuscan terracotta Amphora fermenter.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
