“Senna is situated smack dab in the middle of the rolling hills between Occidental and Sebastopol. The hills here allow the fog to pool and swirl around the vineyards, resulting in cooler temperatures than our mountain sites. This is the oldest of the Dumol Estate plantings, planted in 2004 to the hallowed Swan clone of Pinot Noir. Swan is rarely planted these days... its shy-bearing nature is the scrooge of growers but the resulting wines speak for themselves. It’s a perfect match with the fractured sandstone soil. Small clusters of intense depth and concentration make for a wine that is unequalled in our portfolio.
TASTING: Red and bright. On the nose, this wine reminds me of a great Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru. Offers up bright red cherries, kirsch, and cassis with pressed violet aromas that just burst from the glass. Vinified with 40% whole cluster and an equal blend of Calera and Swan, lending itself to a multifaceted, persistent wine filled with mystery and intrigue. Old World in the new.”
THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 94+
"The 2018 Pinot Noir Senna is medium ruby in the glass and offers seductive aromas of dried lilac, black tea leaves and orange peel with an earthy, black berry core. Medium-bodied and silky, it's expansive and expressive in the mouth, with a broad, ever-changing spectrum of flavors and a long, nuanced finish. This is stunning already, but it will take a bit more time to show all it's got. Drink Date: 2021 - 2028."
