Food Pairings for De Loach Vineyards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Raspberry and black cherry fruit. Nice and ripe, though not jammy.
Spicy and brambly aromas with some cinnamon and cherries. An earthy pinot with a touch of cherry cobbler, a hint of sweetness and medicine and just a touch of cream and cocoa on the finish.
Fruity apple, blueberry, and brandy nose with balanced oak and vanilla, and a bit of ash. The mouth is strongly acidic in a way that gives it minerality, it almost tastes salty. The finish is buttery.
Light earthy rustic cola nose. Darker than many pinots I've had. Raspberry dominates in the mouth with mellow acidity and a slight rubberiness toward the back end. Sweet and chalky finish with the faintest bit of tea leaves. A nice pinot.

Burnt garnet in the glass; dusty fruit & wet wool, wet soil on the nose. In the mouth, you get cola notes, and bright, unwashed strawberries, freshly picked.
medium pale garnet with watery rim. light in body and tannins (could almost taste like white wine if not for the aromatics), great mouthpuckering cranberry tartness. dusty earth, dried cherries, perhaps a bit of vanilla? medium intensity and length of finish. always one of the better QPR American Pinots.
External Reviews for De Loach Vineyards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Our 2008 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir expresses many classic traits associated with this fine varietal. Luscious aromas of cherry pie, chocolate and vanilla burst from the glass and are enhanced by notes of anise and a brown spice bordering on molasses. The palate is bright and lifted, with flavors of fresh Santa Rosa plums and sun-dried cranberries with a touch of cola and leafy green herbs. Clean and smooth, this easy-drinking wine has a medium body and very fine-grained, silky tannins that spread beautifully across the palate
