This vintage of our Estate selection Les Parcelles Cachées comes from the western block of our vineyards in the back of the winery and is a blend of the Mt. Eden and Swan clonal selections. These blocks produce lower yields and a more concentrated flavor profile. Both were fermented using their native yeasts in open top fermenters with hand punchdowns before being bottled unfiltered.
Our 2013 vintage of the Green Valley Pinot Noir opens with alluring aromas of cola, currant and baking spice. Richly complex flavors of cherry, ripe raspberry, licorice and tobacco coat the palate of this full bodied, well-structured wine that culminates in a long, satisfying finish. Our chef suggests pairing it alongside a spiced seared duck breast.
A striking ruby color in the glass, this Vineyard Designate Pinot Noir opens with inviting aromas of sandalwood and lavender accented with a touch of strawberry. Fine-grained tannins and great structure are heightened by ripe red fruit flavors and a hint of shiitake on the back palate.
Bringing together the best fruit from our Marin County growing partners, this captivating Pinot Noir offers aromas of dark plum, black cherry and soft baking spices. Flavors of fresh wild strawberries, rose petal, black cardamom and a touch of caramel spread across the palate with a velvety mouthfeel and well-balanced acidity.
Our 2014 Pennacchio Vineyard Pinot Noir offers concentrated, dark fruit aromas and rich flavors of cranberry, blueberry, plum and a touch of cocoa. With a silky mouthfeel and long finish, this full-bodied Pinot Noir pairs well with wild game or glazed duck.
Our 2014 Stubbs Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with earthy aromas of Shiitake mushroom and dark red fruits. Upon the palate, flavors of sweet fruits, violet and white pepper are accented with a touch of minerality. With compact richness and a concentrated core, this wine is an elegant expression of the unique terroir of Marin County.
The van der Kamp family embraces natural farming and non-invasive techniques. The vineyard has a great amount of variation in soil types, slopes, and sun and wind exposure. Warm days are cooled by foggy nights allowing optimal conditions for rich flavor and balanced acidity to develop.
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.
