The last time I had this was in 2010 and I thought it was one of the better pinots I ever had. Five years later, I can stand once again behind that statement. The fruit was just perfect and succulent to the palate. When I first opened this bottle the bouquet was evident several feet away. The flavors seemed like either cherry or raspberry or a mixture of both, and were just potent. Tannins were just a tad present. This wine has improved since my 2010 tasting. Dumol pinots in strong vintages are some of the best to be had. Highly recommended and still at the appellation level one of the best pints I've ever had, and i said that back in 2010
I think this was better when it was young. The nose is showing pretty fruit and spice. The palate delivers more cherry fruit and baking spice, but offers only moderate acid and little freshness. At this stage, it's still nice but not special.
