New DuMOL Designated Vineyard Releases!

Time flies, as this is the 16th release of DuMOL.  I remember meeting Kerry Murphy and tasting through the first bottles of what has now turned into a real success story.  The “Designated” bottlings  are always something special, and this year is no difference.  Andy Smith pulled up his sleeves and put together an amazing […]

DuMOL wins the last battle of the whites for 2012

In our last head-to-head line-up of the year we picked some of our top favorites of the year and the big winner was DuMOL CHLOE 2010 Chardonnay.  We had some of the most amazing wines in this 10 winery head banger – It included Evening Land 2010 Summum (96 WS $90.00) Tor “Durrell” (95 WS) […]

DuMol’s stunning new releases are here!

2010 might have been a little cooler, but it was a great vintage for Andy Smith and his team at DuMol. I would say it rivals many of the great scoring wines, and might even surpass them. Production is down a little, but I still have good supply! I was DuMol’s FIRST retail account going […]

DuMol Scores Big in Parker!

One of Robert Parker’s favorite wineries, DuMol consistently produces extraordinarily fine wines sourced from California’s Russian River Valley. This region is one of the finest in the world for growing the Chardonnay and Syrah varietals that they have come to perfect. The 2008 production continues on in this tradition and Robert Parker has just released […]
