External Reviews for Deloach Vineyards Zinfandel Russian River Valley
The 1998 Zinfandel Estate exhibits plenty of prune, blackberry, and chocolately fruit in its full-bodied, low acid, plush personality. Loaded with fruit, alcohol (14.5%), and glycerin, it can be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years. This is a wine of power, exuberance, and robustness.
Displays a deep ruby color and intense, ripe, varietal fruit aromas of cherry, plum and blueberry. Flavors of ripe plum and boysenberry fruit mingle on the palate with hints of tobacco, followed by layers of vanilla in the long, jammy finish. A small percentage of Petite Sirah adds a cedar element to the depth and density of the wine and its tannin structure. This wine is big, rich, and very sumptuous with a medium-full body and firm acidity.
O.F.S. stands for Our Finest Selection; it is blended from our favorite barrels of Russian River Valley fruit to create an extremely high-quality, unique wine that showcases the appellation’s character. This Zinfandel is hand-harvested from premium Russian River Valley vineyards in warmer areas of the AVA where the grapes ripen over an extended season to develop wonderfully complex flavors. Following careful cluster sorting, the must is split between small French oak vats and stainless steel tanks to ferment. The wine is gently pressed off and aged separately in barrels, blended only at the end to create Our Finest Selection of Russian River Valley Zinfandel. Dark ruby in color, this Zinfandel is rich, complex and structured with deep notes of blackberries and candied fruits accented by hints of lavender and chocolate. This is a medium-to-full-bodied Zinfandel with firm tannins that will age well for years to come.
