External Reviews for De Loach Pinot Noir Heritage Reserve California
Here is an extremely elegant and perfumed Pinot Noir. De Loach Vineyards gained a reputation through the last three decades for producing first class Pinots from their winery in the Russian River Valley. Today, someone who knows a thing or two about Pinot Noir, dynamic Burgundy producer Jean-Charles Boisset leads the charge, having purchased the estate in 2003. Since then has upgraded throughout the estate and even replanted many of the vineyards. This wine is their best value selection. Grapes are sourced from their best suppliers and fermented under ideal conditions. A portion of the wine is aged in oak barrels for a touch of complexity and body. It shows a silky mouthfeel and pretty flavors of raspberry and cherry jam, orange zest, vanilla, cinnamon and sandalwood. Easily one of the best Pinots on the market at this price.

The cool, foggy Russian River Valley climate allows for slow ripening, enabling grapes to develop full flavor maturation over an extended time. The fruit for our 2008 blend was hand-harvested from select vineyards around the valley and processed using traditional Burgundian techniques: small open-top tank fermentation, hand punch-downs, basket-pressing and French oak barrel ageing.
