2020 Dumol Wester Reach Pinot Noir
"Our 2020 Pinot Noir wines remind me most closely of one of my favorite recent vintages: 2015. These two seasons produced small crops that ripened early at moderate sugar levels but with full vine and grape maturity—all the ingredients for intensity, complexity, and longevity in bottle." - Andy Smith, Winemaker
The aromas are full of vitality: bright, intense, and pure: red and black cherry, and fresh raspberry, with tangy orange zest lift. There’s a sappy, freshly picked character to the wine’s fruit center - wild berries, spiced plum, and underbrushy sweetness. The wine deepens and expands across the palate as its layers unfold then changes course becoming sleek and mineral with a fine line of focused acidity and gravelly tannin. There’s a lovely echo of deep fruit on the finish. This is a wine that you can enjoy on release, but it also offers the potential for a decade of positive aging in bottle.

Spicy, high-toned and strong in tannin, this is an impressive wine in its youth that will only get better. Cardamon, rose petal, black tea and tree bark give it a savory edginess that appeals and adds to the overall complexity and measured weight, finishing bright and fresh. Enjoy best 2030–2035.

The 2020 Pinot Noir Wester Reach has a rich perfume of black cherry cola, sassafras, and sweet violets. The palate is full and ripe, with black raspberry as well as ripe tannins and a note of black tea.
