Deloach Estate Russian River Pinot Noir 2010
Opens with enticing red berry fruit, the aromas of the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir seamlessly blend with hints of Bing cherry and forest floor. Delicate notes of anise and cola accent the fruit and a rich palate of black cherry and strawberry is supported by medium fine-grained tannins. The finish lingers with subtle, toasty undertones and excellent balance.
This stop at DeLoach was part of a Russian River tasting trip! Decent nose with the typical cabbage vegetal smell as usual for a Pinot. Simple, fruity and lightly spiced, I like that it had a certain nut roastiness to it like roasted hazelnuts!
