DeLoach Van der Kamp Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006
from Sonoma County, California
On a terrace of Sonoma Mountain at 1150' elevation, the van der Kamp vineyard has been farmed for over 100 years and sustains some of the oldest Pinot noir vines in Sonoma County. A trout pond, fruit trees, prayer flags, Native American artifacts and a few roosters are found around the north-facing vineyard, which traverses soils from the reddish volcanic loam of the "Red Shoulder" area to a deeper, darker clay loam region.
Offering enticing aromas of cran-raspberry, baking spices, hints of pine duff and eucalyptus, this wine is lifted and bright on the nose. The palate entry brings distinct minerality traced by notes of sarsaparilla, plum, dark cherry clove and pronounced, yet silky tannins which broaden through the finish.
