2014 DuMOL "EOIN" PINOT NOIR
From the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine, "While touches of toast and faintly minerally back notes afford this one a bit of personality of its own, the wine's principal achievements of concentration, fruity depth and incisive varietal focus clearly place it in the DuMOL family. It is, as are its mates, a full and fleshy Pinot with richness to spare, and it will never be accused of being shy or retiring, but neither is it at all overdone in any way and it is remarkably well-composed for the ample wine that it is. It joins its companions in promising plenty with age, and, as good as it is now, it will be that much better when it reaches its eighth anniversary." 92 Points
From Vinous, "DuMol's 2014 Pinot Noir Eoin Sonoma Stage Vineyard is bright, focused and wonderfully delineated throughout. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, cloves, gravel, sage, tobacco and licorice are all very much alive in the glass. Tense, salivating, the 2014 is built on a serious core of energy. The intensely aromatic and savory finish only adds to the wine's considerable allure. This windy site planted on organic soils yields wines of character and personality. This is a strong set of new releases from DuMOL. Winemaker Andy Smith has really dialed in his approach here over the last few years, and it shows. Harvest dates have been moved up, while in general Smith is seeking a bit more freshness in his wines than was the case a few years ago. That is especially true of the Chardonnays, which now also spend eleven months in barrel followed by six months in tank, a fairly classic aging regime today in Burgundy that is less common in California."
