Winemaker Notes

Ruby in color, this wine showcases aromas and flavors of juicy fruit such as strawberry and red cherries, with a hint of gingerbread. With a well-balanced structure, this wine is medium in body and has a nice long finish.

The perfect pairing to many red sauce pasta dishes or roasted salmon.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Firm and rich on the palate, this red is lightly aromatic, offering notes of lavender, dark berry and crushed rock, with lively acidity and tannins. Drink now through 2019.

DeLoach Vineyards, Central Coast, California
Image of winery

DeLoach Vineyards has been a pioneering producer of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in

Sonoma’s Russian River Valley since 1975. DeLoach seeks to produce exceptional wines that

spotlight the singular personality of the Russian River Valley, with its rare and bountiful

convergence of the sea, the soil and the stars. The Boisset family of Burgundy has stewarded

winegrowing and winemaking at DeLoach since 2003, bringing the techniques and approaches of

Burgundy to winemaking in the Russian River Valley, which they believed to be California’s most

expressive terroir for cultivating Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Under Boisset, DeLoach has grown

its small-lot vineyard designate wine program, become a certified organic and Biodynamic estate

vineyard, and implemented traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques such as open-top wood

fermentors, native yeast fermentations, and hand punch-downs. Wine & Spirits magazine has named

DeLoach Vineyards a Top 100 Winery twelve times. 

Central Coast

View all wine

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
