Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 09-17-2013
This unique grain whisky is one of my favorite distilled spirits in our inventory right now. Delicate and subtle with lovely notes of caramel and hazelnut throughout.

2010 DuMol Russian River Valley Syrah
Review Date: 07-08-2013
Definitely the surprise wine of our visit. I had never tasted a DuMOL Syrah before and I came away very impressed by this wine. Dark purple in color but with plenty of acidity- very lively on the palate. Tons of Northern Rhone-ish smoked meat character to go along with dense, pure black berry and purple plum fruit.

2010 DuMol Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 07-08-2013
We had the pleasure of tasting the 2011 versions of both of these wines during our visit but they will not be released for several months. Right now we have the 2010s and both wines are drinking beautifully, especially the Chardonnay. It shows perfect balance, with a lovely, bright acidity all the way through.

2010 DuMol Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L)
Review Date: 07-08-2013
We had the pleasure of tasting the 2011 versions of both of these wines during our recent visit to the winery but they will not be released for several months. Right now we have the 2010s and both wines are drinking beautifully. The Pinot Noir is warm and earthy, bursting with aromas of tobacco leaf and cocoa followed by dark red fruits on the palate.

2010 DuMol "Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Review Date: 07-08-2013
Always a standout. 2010 is only the fourth vintage for this wine but they really have something going here. Made from young vines, but still a very high quality wine.

2010 DuMol "Chloe" Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 07-08-2013
Broad and focused with a pale golden color. Ripe, honeyed nectarine and mango with subtle floral notes on the nose. Incredible richness and length- I’m really intrigued to see what this will be like with another year or two of bottle age.
