Dumol syrah eddies

Syrah, "Eddie's Patch" 2013

DuMOL

Brilliant purple color in the glass. Hi-toned aromatics combine overt fruit with strong savory notes. Blue and black fruits – ripe and lush, graphite and minerals, bay leaf, white and black pepper, strong iron-like quality. Lovely fruit purity, focused, precise long flavors, lots of detail. Deep plum and cherry fruit but always zesty and mouthwatering. Rising acidity and good tannin definition. Decant in its youth and drink between mid-2016 and 2025.

Reviews

  • "95 points. The 2013 Syrah Eddie's Patch Hoppe-Kelly Vineyard is the last wine made from this site before the vines were taken out in preparation for replanting. The Eddie's Patch is marked by a more voluptuous, fruit-driven personality than is found in the Jack Robert's Run. Mocha, dark chocolate, spice, plum and black cherry flesh out on the wine's generous mid-palate. This dramatic, vivid Syrah will drink well pretty much right out of the gate, although it clearly has the potential to develop nicely in bottle for a number of years." (vinous)
  • "93 points. The 2013 Syrah Eddie’s Patch comes from volcanic red soils and shows tightly knit blueberry and blackberry fruit with some camphor, charcoal and barbecue notes. It is highly extracted, intense, full-bodied and rich. It reminds me of a California version of a serious Crozes-Hermitage. Give it several years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15 or so years. About 30% whole clusters were used during fermentation." (Wine Advocate)
