C’est Mag-nifique: The 3-Magnum Vertical Collection from DuMOL
Founded in 1996, DuMOL produces cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from distinctive vineyards in the extreme southwestern part of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California. Over two decades, Viticulturist and Winemaker, Andy Smith, has gained access to some legendary sites. “From first pruning through to the day of harvest,” he explains, “we are out there farming the land in a way that draws out the defining characteristics of each parcel. We minimize our footprint in the vineyard, stay very close to the ingredients and let the vineyards speak for themselves.” Expanding on their longtime experience, DuMOL also grows and crafts small-lot Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Viognier.
Widdoes Vineyard, the very same that produced the outstanding wine you’ll enjoy, is a 23-acre dry-farmed site in an exceptionally cool micro-climate of the Green Valley and has been farmed by DuMOL for the last 24 years. This old-vine, late-ripening vineyard produces Pinot Noir specifically with vibrant, spicy, complex flavors.
In 2017, Ryan was bottled from Jentoft Vineyard. This high-elevation vineyard between the lower Green Valley and the Sonoma Coast has very shallow marine-base soil that forces its vines to drill deep. As a result, this wine (Andy’s pick of the vintage!) is fresh and intense with dark fruit.
Enjoy a taste of DuMOL’s coveted wines with this auction lot, an experience usually reserved for allocations sent to DuMOL’s members and top restaurant partners worldwide.
