Talk about an impressive dinner party wine …
Start with the renowned estate. Owned by Boisset family (of the famed Boisset house in Burgundy), DeLoach is a 12-time Wine & Spirits Winery of the Year. Then there’s the remarkable vintage. 2013 looks "set to equal the heights of 2012," says Decanter magazine.
For this Private Collection Pinot Noir, renowned winemaker Brian Maloney hand-selected fruit from top vineyards throughout the premium Sonoma Coast, a beautifully rugged area of California that’s emerging as a haven for lush, fruit-filled Pinot Noirs. As you’ll taste, the region’s bright, sunny days and a cooling, foggy Pacific influence are ideal for fragrant reds with real depth – especially in a year like 2013.
In the glass, look forward to aromas of ripe cherry and raspberry, with touches of clove. Layers of rich dark cherry, plum, violet and baking spices unwind on the palate, with a round, silky texture. Aside from being a terrific aperitif to hand your red-wine-drinking friends, this superb 2013 (like all fine Pinot Noir) is excellent with food. Bright and juicy, it’s a delicious match with everything from meaty fish to roasted turkey and duck.
Very few cases available – don't miss this top-value Sonoma Pinot.
