Winemaker Notes

Aromas of cherry and raspberry lift from the glass, followed by notes of spice and pine duff. Brambly boysenberry notes linger on the palate as juicy cranberry layers mingle with black peppery hints of autumn forest.

Pair with pot roast, pasta with chorizo sausage and tomato, and braised short ribs.

Wine Enthusiast
Easy to like for its ripe fruit, cola, spice and meaty flavors. This is DeLoach's basic Zinfandel, and it's very good due to the balance that makes it so drinkable.

DeLoach Vineyards, Russian River, Sonoma County, California

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. 

Russian River

View all wine

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, The Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river which flows through the region. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, further from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Zinfandel

View all wine

Unapologetically powerful, heady, and fruit-forward, Zinfandel is often thought of as a truly Californian grape, though in fact it is anything but. This variety has followed an intriguing trajectory to reach its adoptive home, beginning, surprisingly, in Croatia. Originally known as Tribidrag, it first made its way to southern Italy where it became known as Primitivo. From there it eventually migrated to what is now unarguably its most successful outpost, in California, and has thrived throughout the state. Of course, this is also the grape of White Zinfandel, a sweet pink wine that enjoyed great popularity in the 1980s and 90s. Though White Zin still has a significant following, today the variety is increasingly associated with the red version.

In the Glass

Zinfandel commonly features a bold, plush texture and notes of dark plum, blackberry, sweet spice, black pepper, dark chocolate, leather, and licorice, and can often be described as “jammy” and a little bit sweet. Very ripe examples may express a hint of dried fruit like raisin, fig, or prune. Despite its significant alcohol and weight, Zinfandel has very smooth, gentle tannins.

Perfect Pairings

Zinfandel is a powerfully flavored wine, mingling happily with bold food like brisket, lamb shanks, pork ribs, or anything barbecued. If care is taken with regards to alcohol levels, Zinfandel’s hint of sweetness can work well with milder Indian-spiced dishes like lamb curry.

Sommelier Secret

Thanks to its popularity both for home winemaking and as communion wine, many Zinfandel vines were able to survive prohibition, leading to the abundance of "old vine" Zinfandels. These low-yielding vines tend to produce wine that is concentrated, complex, and elegant.
