2012 Carneros Chardonnay
Estate Grown
Carneros is renowned for stellar Chardonnay, so although our project is focused on Pinot, we couldn't resist planting a small block of Chardonnay. The selection of Old Wente Chardonnay came to us as budwood from the Winery Lake and Larry Hyde vineyards. It's a charming field selection, yielding a host of aromas and flavors from classic apple to banana to floral, including the occasional heady perfume of a musqué cluster. While Pinot is our obsession, we love drinking this Chardonnay, and wanted to offer you the same opportunity.

2011 Carneros Pinot Noir
Estate Grown
Our Carneros Estate Pinot Noir not only comes from the best blocks in our vineyard - our grand cru sites - but also is a selection of the most appealing barrels within each lot.

2011 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Estate Grown
2011 marks the inaugural release of two Donum wines from the Angel Camp vineyard in the "deep end" of the Anderson Valley, north of Philo, where ocean fog keeps temperatures cool much of the summer. The vineyard is planted to seven different clones of Pinot Noir planted in volcanic, sandy soil at about 500 feet above sea level on a knoll with several different aspects. The Anderson Valley bottling represents a barrel-selected blend from all of these blocks.

2011 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Angel Camp Vineyard

Our second of two new wines from the Anderson Valley's Angel Camp vineyard, the 2011 Angel Camp Vineyard Pinot Noir represents our top barrels from this impressive young vineyard. With seven different clones planted, the vineyard provides plenty of variety to work with, presenting a unique blending challenge. When we decided to work with Anderson Valley fruit, our goal was to create a wine that stays true to the terroir of the region but also expresses the Donum style of Pinot Noir. This rich, expressive, balanced Pinot Noir is exactly what we had in mind.

2011 Russian River Reserve
Pinot Noir
Estate Grown

A selected fourteen barrels of Dijon 667, which yields deeply scented, earthy, dark fruit and excellent structure. The Reserve combines power with elegance and is a true stand- alone wine that sings in a strong, clear voice.

2011 Russian River Pinot Noir
Estate Grown

The Donum Russian River Valley Estate Grown Pinot Noir is always a best barrel selection from less vigorous blocks. Because these blocks consistently showed something special in our blind tastings, we made the first stand-alone bottling of this wine from the 2005 vintage. $72.00 Parker Score 90 points.

The Gift of the Land

Donum means "gift of the land". We produce six estate grown Pinot Noirs. Two of them - Carneros and Russian River Valley - carry appellation names, but each is actually a blend of Pinot Noir clones or selections from within a single vineyard (and we eagerly anticipate adding a third, Anderson Valley, from the 2011 vintage). The other four Pinot Noirs come from our most prized sites, each highlighting one clone or selection from a single block; these crus are East Slope, West Slope, Thomas and Russian River Reserve. An estate grown Carneros Chardonnay completes our Burgundian portfolio.
