Deep currant & boysenberry jump right up. As it relaxes I’m getting hints of cedar, oodles of crushed cherry. On the palate it brings a youthful but surprisingly composed, expressive and robust character. Perhaps a symptom of the ‘14 vintage, the tannins are extremely smooth and melt delightfully into h mid-palate of the wine, leading to an elegant, if not a bit demure finish.

Nice cherries, dry cranberries, dark cherries and just slight notes of blue fruits. Nice limestone minerals, baking spices and red florals. Like it but it needs another 6-8 years in bottle.

Cooked strawberries, nutmeg infused cooked rhubarb, raspberry jam, chalk, gritty minerals and tannins. Still want Hedy's Duck Confit with this wine! @plate&bottle SC.

Outrageously good Pinot. Super tart cranberry, crushed raspberries and fresh cut cedar on the nose. Palate is sour black cherry, with incredible acidity. Heavier body than a typical Pinot. Exceptional. Would love to see it what it shows with some age.

Rich red berry and cherry with a cooked strawberry finish. Excellent wine, lots of potential for aging but don't hesitate, drink now! #dumol #pinotnoir #russianriver #wine
