Deloach Pinot Noir Eco 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This Pinot Noir is light ruby in color, with aromas of strawberry jam and a touch of mint, almost "Beaujolais" in style. To the taste, Queen Anne cherries, pomegranate, and cranberry are the primary flavors, with a hint of tobacco to round out the palate. The wine is light in body, with a medium finish, and pairs well with lighter entrees, including grilled sea bass or chicken Caesar salad.

DeLoach Vineyards pioneered Pinot Noir wine growing in the Russian River Valley when Cecil DeLoach, a firefighter from San Francisco with a passion for winemaking, first planted the grape in 1973. In 2003, DeLoach Vineyards was purchased by the Boisset Family from Burgundy, France, when Jean-Charles Boisset fell in love with the Russian River Valley on his first visit to the area, immediately recognizing the similarities between Sonoma County and Burgundy: each boast a confluence of river, mountains, and soil that is perfect for growing world-class Pinot Noir. A recognized authority on biodynamic, organic, and sustainable winemaking, the Boisset Family had been using these eco-friendly practices in their estate vineyards in Burgundy and understood the positive effects they had on the health of the land and the quality of the wine. In 2004 the family brought that vision here to DeLoach Vineyards. Showing our dedication to the environment, we tore up award-winning, highly-lauded vineyards after the 2004 vintage and replanted with cover crops designed to revitalize the soil. New vines were planted in 2006, and the first vintage grown with biodynamic farming techniques will be the eagerly-awaited 2010 vintage. In the meantime, we continue to produce world-class wine by partnering with winegrowers who are equally dedicated to and passionate about eco-friendly farming practices and the production of high-quality wines of distinction. At DeLoach Vineyards, we focus on small-lot winemaking, giving exceptional care and attention to our Russian River Valley, O.F.S. and Vineyard Designate wines. Our passion is Pinot Noir - the noble variety of Burgundy that demands a delicate, labor-intensive process to showcase the exceptional terroir and complexity of the Russian River Valley and beyond. The diligence required to produce truly original, terroir-driven Pinot Noir is given to each wine that we craft. In keeping with our Burgundian Heritage, we use French open-top wood fermentors for all of our Russian River Valley, O.F.S, and Vineyard Designate Pinot Noirs, as well as our old-vine Zinfandel. We also practice hand punch-downs, known as pigeage -- another Burgundian winemaking tradition. Tasting Room Open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Groups with more than ten guests are accepted by appointment. Read less

A really nice wine, showing the generosity and sheer sexiness that Pinot Noir can offer. With a silky mouthfeel, it has expansive flavors of raspberry and cherry jam, orange zest, vanilla, cinnamon and sandalwood. One of the best Pinots on the market at this price, and easy to find, with 20,000 cases produced.

This pinot noir is light ruby in color with aromas of strawberry jam and a touch of mint, almost “Beaujolais” in style. To the taste, Queen Anne cherries, pomegranate, and cranberry are the primary flavors, with a hint of tobacco to round out the palate. The wine is light in body, with a medium finish, and pairs well with lighter entrees, including grilled sea bass of chicken Caesar salad.

This wine is dark ruby in color with aromas of ripe summer fruit touched with subtle notes of dried mint. The mouthwatering flavors of strawberries and bing cherries greet the front of your palate and extend to the more herbal tastes of black tea intermingled with spearmint towards the back of the palate. Pairs well with lighter dishes, including semi-soft cheese with walnuts and figs or apple-mustard glazed pork chops.

This Pinot Noir is dark ruby in color that glistens at the top of every pour. Aromas of ripe summer fruit touched with the pleasantly subtle notes of dried mint lift out of the glass. The mouthwatering flavors of strawberries and Bing cherries greet the front of your palate and extend to the more herbal tastes of black tea intermingled with spearmint towards the back of the palate. This wine is medium bodied with good acidity and a refreshingly smooth finish. Pairs well with lighter dishes, including semi-soft cheese with walnuts and figs or apple-mustard glazed pork chops.
