DeLoach Pinot Noir OFS
Generous aromas of blackberry and raspberry lift out of the glass. The aromas unfold to fresh berries mingling with rose petals towards the front of the palate, followed by undertones of cola and black tea in the mid to back palate. Perfectly balanced with its fine acids and medium bodied soft tannins. Enjoy with roasted pork tenderloin with fingerling potatoes or grilled rack of lamb with honey mustard glaze.

DeLoach Vineyards pioneered Pinot Noir wine growing in the Russian River Valley when Cecil DeLoach, a firefighter from San Francisco with a passion for winemaking, first planted the grape in 1973. In 2003, DeLoach Vineyards was purchased by the Boisset Family from Burgundy, France, when Jean-Charles Boisset fell in love with the Russian River Valley on his first visit to the area, immediately recognizing the similarities between Sonoma County and Burgundy: each boast a confluence of river, mountains, and soil that is perfect for growing world-class Pinot Noir.
A recognized authority on Biodynamic, organic, and sustainable winemaking, the Boisset Family had been using these eco-friendly practices in their estate vineyards in Burgundy and understood the positive effects they had on the health of the land and the quality of the wine.
The OFS Pinot Noir typifies a quintessential Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. It's 100% aged in oak (15% new) for 14 months.
