Time flies. This is already the 26th release of DUMOL! I fondly remember meeting founder Kerry Murphy (who sadly passed away last year in July) in 1997, when he started DuMOL and tasting through the first bottles of what has now turned into a real success story. Andy Smith, his longtime winemaker, rolled up his sleeves and produced what might turn into the best vintage for Dumol ever!
With much lower than normal production levels this vintage will sell out in no time! The 2021 DuMol releases are turning out to be very good this year! As you know DuMOL is always in high demand, you can bet that this means the allocation will sell out quickly.

DuMOL 2021 Pinot Noir “Wester Reach” Russian River Valley
Retail 85.00 – GGWC 79.99
Incredibly aromatic and complex, the 2021 Dumol Wester Reach Pinot Noir offers loads of spiced red fruits, incense, wood smoke, and forest floor notes as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, focused, yet still pleasure bent style. It’s a classic DuMol Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 5-7 years.
Winemaker Notes: “Classic coastal Russian River aromas and flavors: crisp red apple skin, bright red cherry, deep wild berry, hibiscus, pepper, fresh mint, and a complex woodsy note. There’s wonderful purity and succulence to the core of red and black fruits which are supported by balanced black tea tannins and bright vibrant acidity. The wine finishes sleek and focused with liveliness and lingering aromatic lift.”
James Suckling 95 Points: “A wine with a lot of back end, with dark fruits of blackberry and cherry. Ripe strawberry. Hints of toasted oak and smoke. It’s full and layered with very firm and polished tannins. Very serious and real, and shows the structure of the vintage. Some chocolate. Strawberry pie, too. Drinkable but two to three years of age will help it."
DuMOL 2021 Chardonnay “Wester Reach”
Russian River Valley
Retail 74.00 – GGWC 69.99
The Dumol 2020 Wester Reach Chardonnay comes from various great vineyards in the Russian River Valley, it has terrific notes of citrus and Meyer lemon, and hints of tart pineapple as well a medium-bodied, fresh, focused, incredibly pretty style on the palate. With bright acidity and plenty of vibrancy, it’s slightly more forward and fruit-driven compared to some of the other releases here.
Winemaker Notes: “ Great aromatic intensity—citrus and nectarine fruits, jasmine and orange blossom, briny/flinty sea spray edges. The flavors center upon lemony green apple then deeper stone fruits with honeysuckle and ginger richness. The wine’s texture is deep, oily, and layered. Fresh mineral, grapefruit acidity cuts through the richness giving a pinpoint focus to the wine’s long echoing finish. Drink between 2023 and 2027.”
James Suckling 95 Points: “A structured and layered white with apple, light honey and acacia aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Creamy mouthfeel. Phenolic texture that runs through the wine. Flavorful yet subtle finish. Touch of flint and cedar. Drink or hold.”
DuMOL 2021 Syrah “Wild Mountainside” Russian River Valley
Retail 78.00 – GGWC 71.99
Black cherry, boysenberry, lavender, violet and green peppercorn are all present in the aroma. There’s lovely clarity of flavor and purity of cool climate fruit: cassis and blackberry offset by thyme, tobacco and cocoa nib. A lushness of texture takes over with lingering black fruits and lilac on the peppery, extended finish. Drink this soon after release or enjoy the reward of 10+ years of aging.
Winemaker Notes: “ Soaring multi-dimensional aromatic complexity that is quite dramatic. Violet, dark berry pastille, graphite, and black olive. Bright peppery component with deep succulent blue and black fruits—really sings of its cool climate origins. Simultaneously layered and deep yet beautifully pure and lifted. Focused, granular tannins, powerful but never edgy. Lingering complexity—dusty cocoa and dried herbs. Decant for an hour in its youth. Drink between late-2023 and 2031.”
