Winemaker Notes

The 2011 Estate Pinot Noir is light ruby in color with aromas of raspberry, briar, Bing cherry, iron and earth. The palate shows berry and black cherry along with a spicy, sassafras-like note, and a hint of dried fruit. The 2011 is a bit lighter in weight than our typical estate Pinot, but still has wonderful intensity of flavor, with a long, earthy finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dark ruby-colored 2011 Pinot Noir Estate Carneros offers pleasant cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit, Burgundian-like, soft forest floor notes, medium body, a round personality, soft tannins and fresh acids.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A muscle-bound effort, offering loamy earth, road tar and dark berry flavors. Fairly tannic and gutsy, ending with ample grip. Best to lay this down. Best from 2015 through 2024. 479 cases made.

The Donum Estate, California
The Donum Estate Winery Image
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.

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.
