2015 DuMOL Wild Mountainside Syrah Russian River Valley USA
While the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs get most of the love from this terrific estate, don’t miss their Syrahs! The 2016 Syrah Wild Mountainside is a power-packed, deep, rich, concentrated beauty that offers sensational, northern Rhône-like notes of blackberries, white pepper, bacon fat, and wild scrub/sagebrush-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, and perfectly balanced, it’s a beautiful Russian River Valley Syrah that will keep for over a decade.

A bruiser, with big, plump fruit, yet polished and structured, offering expressive black raspberry, licorice, stony mineral and pepper flavors that take on richness toward refined but broad-shouldered tannins.
