Professional Wine Reviews for Dumol Eddie's Patch Reserve Syrah 2013

Rated 95 by Decanter
The 2013 Syrah Eddie's Patch Hoppe-Kelly Vineyard is the last wine made from this site before the vines were taken out in preparation for replanting. The Eddie's Patch is marked by a more voluptuous, fruit-driven personality than is found in the Jack Robert's Run. Mocha, dark chocolate, spice, plum and black cherry flesh out on the wine's generous mid-palate. This dramatic, vivid Syrah will drink well pretty much right out of the gate, although it clearly has the potential to develop nicely in bottle for a number of years. (Galloni)
Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The Syrah 2013 Eddie's Patch Hoppe-Kelly Vineyard is stunningly beautiful. Lavender, mint, violets, crushed rocks, dark cherries, plums and smoke meld together in the 2013 Syrah Eddie's Patch Hoppe-Kelly Vineyard. Savory herbs, black pepper and gamy notes abound in a vibrant Syrah bursting at the seams with varietal character, crystalline tension and energy. The 2013 is shaping up to be a beauty.

Additional Information on Dumol Eddie's Patch Reserve Syrah 2013

Winery Dumol

Varietal: Syrah

There continues to be much debate surrounding the name of the Shiraz/Syrah grape varietal, with many experts still quite unsure which came first. Indeed, even the origins of this varietal are more or less unknown, despite it being most commonly associated with the Rhone Valley of France, and New World countries, most notably Australia. However, its popularity and unique characteristics have seen it planted all over the world, where it continues to impress with its powerful flavors and wonderfully spicy notes of pepper and clove. Shiraz/Syrah wines are renowned also for their versatility, and are regularly used in single variety still and sparkling wines, as well as blended and oak aged wines which demonstrate its ability to express its terroir and secondary flavors very well.

Region: California

It isn't difficult to see how California became one of the world's most important, successful and influential wine regions. Since the first vines were planted in the state by Spanish pioneers in the 18th century, the region has made the most of its ideal climatic conditions, which range from hot, dry and arid to windswept and cool, for vineyard cultivation and wine production. Today, California has almost half a million acres under vine, and hundreds of independent and well established wineries dotted across its vast wine-making areas. Californian wines range from the traditional, and those emulating fine Old World wines, to the experimental and unique, and it is the home to many of the world's most exciting and trailblazing wineries producing excellent bottles for the global market.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.

Appellation: Sonoma Valley

Since the 1850s, Sonoma Valley has been recognized as one of the United States' most important and productive wine regions. Any visitor to the region will quickly understand just why Sonoma Valley has had so much success over the past hundred and fifty years, as the region benefits enormously from the wonderfully hot and dry climate it receives, alongside mineral rich soils, geological features such as thermal springs. Furthermore, the region has a rich wine heritage which gives the region a sense of pride and a determination to consistently put quality above quantity, and to make the most of the wide array of red and white wine grape varietals which flourish there. The Valley of the Moon, as it is affectionately named, is now widely understood to be home to many of North America's finest wines, and this is set to continue for many years to come.
