DescriptionDuMOL 'Ryan' Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 2009
VINOUSBright ruby-red. Explosive aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry, potpourri and smoky minerals. Lush, deeply pitched bitter cherry and dark berry preserve flavors are enlivened by zesty minerality and pick up floral and spice notes with air. This alluringly scented, energetic pinot finishes with excellent clarity and clinging sweetness.
WINE ADVOCATEThe 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.
WINE SPECTATORFirm and intense, with layers of wild berry, black cherry, plum and spice flavors. This is aromatic and full-bodied, gaining a loamy earthiness and lively chai tea spiciness on the finish.
