Winemaker's Notes:

The smell is incredibly delicious. There is a combination of ripe boysenberry, mulberry, and chocolate. The wine is mouth-filling on the palate with the rich fruit balanced by bright acidity. The finish is berry berry long with hints of pepper and spice.

DeLoach's mission is to produce exceptional wines that spotlight the singular personality of the Russian River Valley in a socially responsible, environmentally sensitive way. They seek to foster a better understanding of the Valley's unique terroir, with its rare and bountiful convergence of the sea, the soil and the stars.
