DONUM 2017 Russian River Pinot Noir

In 2001, Anne Moller-Racke, Donum’s founder and winegrower set out to make the best Pinot Noir from their Carneros vineyard.  This exploration evolved with the addition of acreage including their Winside Vineyard in Russian River.  Their quest is to craft complete, site-specific wines.  Winemaker Dan Fishman finishes with his signature winemaker style.

This wine is a best-barrel selection from the Winside Vineyard, planted in 1997. and an extraordinary Pinot with demure aromas of black fruits, dark rose petal and oak spice and toast. The fruit pushes the ripeness envelope with flavors of blackberry jam, plum reduction sauce and cassis. The oak is better integrated on the palate. Full-bodied and velvety in the mouth, with balanced tannins and generous finish.

Reg. $82, now on special for $69.95.
