    Winemaker Notes

    The 1998 De Loach Vineyards Pinot Noir O.F.S. is an excellent wine with aromas of black cherries, and hints of smokiness and oak. Rich fruit flavors are followed by creamy cola components. The wine is layered and full in the mouth, with a medium body and an elegant, lingering finish.

    This wine is lovely when paired with grilled quail or duck with a wild berry reduction, or a pork tenderloin with cranberries. We also recommend trying this wine with chocolate dipped strawberries...delicious!

    DeLoach Vineyards, Sonoma County, 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. 

    Sonoma County

    Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for nearly every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa, the region only produces about half the amount of wine, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in both quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

    Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros, and Fort Ross-Seaview. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

    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.
