Elaboration of DeLoach Russian River Estate Pinot Noir 2008
DeLoach Russian River Estate Pinot Noir 2008 (Pinot Noir)
The cool, foggy Russian River Valley climate allows for slow ripening, enabling grapes to develop full flavor maturation over an extended time. The fruit for our 2008 blend was hand-harvested from select vineyards around the valley and processed using traditional Burgundian techniques: small open-top tank fermentation, hand punch-downs, basket-pressing and French oak barrel ageing.
Enticing red berry fruit aromas blend with rhubarb and cola. Delicate notes of anise and baking spices lace the fruit to unfold a rich palate of black cherries supported by medium-fine-grained tannins. The finish lingers with attractive subtle toasty undertones, fine acid, and excellent balance.

Good cherry colour, and middle layer. Slight smell of tea in this Russian River Valley . A very well balanced red.
