DuMol Pinot Noir Ryan 2009, 3L (WA92, WS91) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

DuMol Pinot Noir Ryan

3L

Vintage: 2009
Region: US
Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
Producer: Dumol
Condition: signed by proprietor

WA92, WS91
Rated 92 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2009 Pinot Noir Ryan is another very pretty and complete wine. Freshly cut flowers, red berries, spices and licorice are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. Underlying veins of minerality support the fruit and give the wine much of its energy. I don`t find the same level of complexity or interest here as I do with the best wines in this lineup, but in exchange, the Ryan will be ready to drink pretty much right out of the gate. The vineyard sources are Widdoes and Abbott. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `This is a very strong set of wines from DuMOL and winemaker Andy Smith. Like so many producers, DuMOL is in the midst of a stylistic shift that began around 2005. Smith described some of the estate`s earlier wines as a bit too heavy. Today`s approach emphasizes picking a bit earlier than in the past and places greater emphasis on complexity, structure and acidity. At times, the malolactic fermentations are blocked. The Chardonnays are barrel fermented and aged in oak (50% new) with all of their lees, but there is no stirring of the lees.`
