2012 DuMOL ryan Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $90. Sourced from Dutton-Widdoes Vineyard located in the Green Valley of Russian River Valley AVA. Unfiltered. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Very shy nose that never really comes around in the glass over time. More expressive on the palate and packed with dark red cherry and berry flavors wrapped in significant tannins and oak. Despite its heft, the wine has a gentle demeanor and is quite silky in texture. Rather brooding and in need of more time in bottle. Score: 90-91. Reviewed February 8, 2015
