DONUM Pinot Noir, Carneros 2013

The 2013 Donum Carneros Pinot Noir is another absolutely outstanding effort by Anne Moller-Racke and her team at Donum Estate composed of 95% Donum Selection and 5% Calera Clone from the Donum Estate. This expressive Pinot Noir showcases an array of aromas, including black cherries and dark plums with a touch of pomegranate woven together with spices, cola and a wonderful earthy character all coming together in the glass. On the plate this shows an excellent balance of fruit and acidity with a lovely velvety texture as it expands seamlessly onto the beautifully polished finish. Overall, this is a simply exceptional Pinot Noir, not to mention flat-out delicious, which should also prove to last for years to come. (Best 2016-2026) - April, 2016 (JD)
