"The 2013 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard feels especially ripe and powerful in this vintage. There is a real feeling of density and power in the blue and purplish-hued fruit. This is the darkest and richest of these 2013 Pinots, although winemaker Andy Smith adds that this is the lowest alcohol of the 2013 Pinots. That is why wine is rarely about numbers alone. Drinking window: 2018-2023. 92+ points

This is a strong set of new releases from DuMOL. Winemaker Andy Smith has really dialed in his approach here over the last few years, and it shows. Harvest dates have been moved up, while in general Smith is seeking a bit more freshness in his wines than was the case a few years ago. That is especially true of the Chardonnays, which now also spend eleven months in barrel followed by six months in tank, a fairly classic aging regime today in Burgundy that is less common in California. Smith has also introduced two new Cabernets, with more to follow. As readers probably know, Smith made the wines at Larkmead for years, so Cabernet is intimately familiar. The first wines are quite impressive."
