DuMOL, "Wild Mountainside" Syrah

One Of The Finest Wines We've Tasted All Year!
"A real head-turner." C. DeSanctis

This is one of the finest wines we've tasted all year!

Don't let the "Wild Mountainside" name fool you. This is a restrained, balanced and elegant Syrah that is right there - step for step - with some of the finest Rhone reds!

"While the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs get most of the love from this terrific estate, don't miss their Syrahs!" Jeb Dunnuck

We tasted this Syrah on three separate occasions - each tasting evoked the same reaction:

"Wow!"

"Dynamite!"

"Stunning!"

High-toned fruit pushes and pulls with perfectly balanced tannins. Tiny wild berries, namely blackberry and blueberry, burst with personality. Dark cherry compote with plum, cacao, black pepper, underbrush and cedar box on the finish. A dash of mild and understated oak ties together all the moving parts.

Outstanding!

If you think Rhone, France is the only terroir that produces world-class, mountain Syrah, DuMol's "Wild Mountainside" will change all that!

$67.95 per bottle / $815.40 per case

95 / 100

"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."
