DUMOL 2012 SYRAH RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 750mL

Winemaker Andy Smith decided to use a selection of different Syrah clones (7, 470, 877, Estrella, and Alban) for increased complexity. Yields were a small, and the grapes were fermented using native yeasts before being aged for 17 months in 30% new French oak barrels.

Andy believes this is DuMol's finest RRV Syrah to date. This has a soaring multi-dimensional aromatic complexity that is really quite dramatic, including violet, dark cassis, graphite, dried herbs, bright pepper, and mint. Simultaneously fragrant and red-fruited, but with a brooding inner dark power, this has focused, granular tannins that linger with the tobacco, dusty cocoa, and mixed black fruits. Decant for an hour in its youth.

WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "Pure, rich and layered, with dense, mocha-laced blackberry, black licorice, dill, anise and cedar notes. The flavors keep unraveling, ending with a long, sustained finish. Best from 2015 through 2028."
