2016 DuMol "Eddie's Patch - Greywacke Vineyard" Russian River Valley Syrah (Previously $85)

SKU #1387364 94-97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Intensely mineral and savory, the 2016 Syrah Eddie's Patch Greywacke Vineyard is much less overt than the Estate Syrah. Powerful tannins drive a core of dark stone fruit, graphite, crushed rocks, black pepper and exotic spice notes. The 2016 is marked by its soaring aromatic intensity and structure. Even at this early stage, it is clearly exceptional. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Syrah Eddie’s Patch displays a deep garnet-purple color, with notes of blackberries, blueberries and plums plus hints of espresso, fertile earth, smoked meats, Indian spices and violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals a built-like-a-brick-house structure with ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with lots of exotic spice layers on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Polished yet intensely structured, with blueberry and huckleberry flavors accented by smoky meat, cracked pepper and sweet anise notes, finishing with big but refined tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Much like its cellarmates, DuMol’s Eddie’s Patch Syrah is a dense and very deeply filled version that, while long on ripe fruit, never inclines to excessive ripeness and keeps its sights set on the distinctive berry and spice traits of the variety from start to finish. It is both full and still fairly tight with ample tannins working to dissuade early drinking, and, if not rough or abrasive, it gets a touch sere at the finish and, in no uncertain terms, demands time in the cellar. Three or four years of waiting seem the minimum here, while five or six strikes as better yet, and we have little doubt that it will be in fine form well beyond its tenth anniversary. Inner quote mark (3/2019)
