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

Winery: Dumol

Varietal: Syrah

Known as Syrah in most countries around the world, and Shiraz in Australia and certain other regions of the New World, this grape varietal has proven over the centuries to be one of the most powerful and flavorful red wine grapes there is. It is now one of the planet's most widely grown grapes, and is a favorite with wineries as a result of its robustness and versatility. It isn't easy to identify many characteristics of this particular varietal, due to the fact that it is highly versatile and shows significant differences in flavor and character depending on the terroir it is grown in, and the climatic conditions of the region. However, Syrah is most widely associated with full bodied, strong and loud red wines, packed full of fruity and spicy flavors, held in a beautifully deep red liquid.

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

The mid-nineteenth century was a hugely important era for the United States wine industry, and it was in this period when Sonoma Valley was first used as a wine region. The earliest wineries which made the wide and flat valley floor their home recognized the potential the region had, and noted the fantastic climate Sonoma Valley received. Alongside this, they understood the importance of the mineral rich volcanic soils and geothermal springs of the region, which would go on to provide nutrition for millions of grape vines over the next century and a half. Today, Sonoma Valley is one of California's premier wine producing regions, and it is widely agreed that many of the state's finest red and white wines hail from this beautiful area.
