Pinot Noir, "Ryan" 2015

DuMOL

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.

Reviews

  • "94-96 points. Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard is scented of cherry compote, black raspberries and mulberries with hints of cinnamon stick, roses and charcoal. Medium-bodied, the palate has incredible intensity, with layers of berry preserves and spice box notes framed by firm, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long. DuMOL normally makes around 1,000 cases of this wine, but in 2015 there will only be 600. This Pinot Noir was tasted as a tank sample, to be bottled in one week’s time." (Wine Advocate)
  • "91-94 points. The 2015 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard is exceptionally beautiful and vivid in the glass. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal and lavender notes abound. The Martini clone gives the wine its intriguing aromatic top notes, but there is also striking fruit intensity. The Ryan is a bit eccentric. It is also a wine that draws the taster in with its myriad shades of expression." (vinous)
