Winemaker Notes

This rich, concentrated Pinot Noir displays layers of blackberry, Bing and black cherry aromas along with subtle suggestions of strawberries, rose petals and baking spice in a very provocative nose. On the mouth, the wine is dense and silky, weighty and lithe, with lively black cherry and berry flavors so vibrant as to suggest fresh juice and flesh that linger through a prolonged finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
An aromatic toasty note gives added oomph to the plum and wild berry flavors. Focused, spicy and sophisticated, with generous flavors on a firm, dense body.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
From the Carneros vineyard, this is a balanced, crisp Pinot Noir, with rich raspberry, cherry, red licorice and cola flavors, finished with sweet, caramelized oak and dusty spices. It’s a savory, elegant young wine for drinking now.

The Donum Estate, California
Image of winery
Since The Donum Estate's first release in 2001, Donum winegrower and founder, Anne Moller-Racke has remained committed to growing Pinot Noir based on a Burgundian grand cru model of estate farming. A Carneros grower for over three decades, Anne has worked alongside the industry's foremost authorities, including Andre Tchelistcheff, Dr. Phil Freese and Dr. Paul Skinner. As the caretaker for Donum's three estate vineyards - most notably, the 47 acres planted to heirloom and Dijon clone Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on Donum's 147-acre Carneros rance - her focus is on crafting wines that not only exhibit regional character, but also possess intensity, grace and power. With just a decade under its belt, Donum has secured a reputation as one of California's top producers of cellar-worthy Pinot Noir.
