Winemaker Notes

Enticingly aromatic, with notes of raspberries, black cherries, rhubarb, rose petals and a hint of cola.

This wine pairs well with Alaskan salmon or other rich fish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Give this dry elegant Pinot 4–5 years in the cellar to soften and mellow. Right now, the tannins dominate, making it tough. Underneath are fascinatingly earthy flavors of cherries, cola, mushrooms and exotic spices.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Tight in its cool-climate scent of tart cherries and red apple skin, this broadens to a juicy, clean flavor of black cherries and peach. It's fragrant and bright, then chocolatey and ripe, a firm pinot noir to serve with roast quail.

WS 90
Wine Spectator
This firm yet supple red shows a vivid focus on wild berry and raspberry fruit, which picks up a peppery, spicey edge, leading to an aftertaste of wilted rose and spice.

DeLoach, Green Valley, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California
2009 Green Valley Pinot Noir
The Russian River Valley has come to be known as "America’s Burgundy," and DeLoach is proud to have been an important factor in this distinction. DeLoach's wines have won numerous accolades and scored many 90+ ratings over the years. The Wine Spectator’s James Laube called DeLoach "one of California’s best producers of Chardonnay," and Wine and Spirits has proclaimed DeLoach "Winery of the Year" nine times.

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.

Green Valley

View all wine

Situated on the foggier and colder western edge of the Russian River Valley, almost abutting the Sonoma Coast appellation, Green Valley is one of California’s most reputable Chardonnay and Pinot noir producing regions. It is also a wonderful source of sparkling wines made from these varieties.

Goldridge soils abound throughout the Green Valley appellation. This fine, dark, sandy loam and fractured sandstone is derived from the remains of ancient inland seabeds dating back three to five million years. It is valuable for high quality grape growing because of its excellent drainage and low fertility.

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.
