The finest Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, our 2016 O.F.S. Pinot Noir opens with ripe, red fruit aromas with orange zest and a touch of star anise. Striking flavors of raspberry, cherry and red currant are accented by notes of baker's chocolate. Medium bodied with bight acidity, this wine has a long lasting and clean finish.
At DeLoach Vineyards we strive to produce distinctive wines that highlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practicing sustainable viticulture and minimally intrusive winemaking. The fruit for this Pinot Noir was grown in a cool climate, allowing the grapes to ripen over an extended season to develop concentrated flavors. We selected fruit from some of the finest vineyards in the Russian River Valley, including our own Estate Vineyard, Starkey Vineyard and BCD Vineyard.
After the grapes for this OFS Pinot Noir were hand-harvested and cluster sorted, they were open top fermented with native yeasts. The wine was gently basket-pressed and aged in 100% French oak barrels for 16 months prior to bottling. Each lot was individually fermented and aged before the winemaker tasted through to craft the finest blend.
