2011 DuMol Russian River Valley Syrah

SKU #1165384 90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Red berries with a touch of blackberry concentration and a light, airy wildflower note backed up by crème brulée oak sets this one off on the right aromatic path, and its balanced, supple texture, its moderate but evident tannins and its long finish all speak to Syrah. There is a slight bit of dried grape sweetness at the end, but, here again, this edition is more about comfortable character than it is about power. It will come into its own in just a couple of years but can hold longer. Inner quote mark (3/2014)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (13.9% alcohol; just a bit of whole clusters used here): Bright violet-ruby color. Aromas of blackberry, violet and black pepper. Juicy, sweet and intense but a bit clenched today, in a distinctly cooler style. Dark berry flavors are accented by a peppery quality and given grip by dusty tannins. This will go meaty and tarry with five years in the cellar but will it truly blossom in the bottle? "There isn't a huge blast of California fruit in the 2011 syrahs," observes Smith. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2014)
