DeLoach Vineyards Reviews

Score: 91 | July 9, 2014 | Wine Spectator

Creamy, offering a smooth mix of red and black fruits and spice, anise, black licorice and subtle earth notes, with mushroom and forest floor accents. Ends with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022.—J.L.

The 2010 Pinot Noir Maboroshi Vineyard is one of the first vineyards from which the fog lifts in the early morning. Dark ruby-hued, with notes of root vegetables, earth and berry fruit, this soft, round, voluptuous Pinot is far more sexy in the mouth than I expected. Drink this attractive, lush Pinot Noir over the next 2-3 years.

A moderately high-toned nose features notes of raspberry, cranberry and red cherry leads to opulent and very rich medium weight flavors that possess noticeable mid-palate sweetness that is contrasted against a slightly odd finish that displays an unusual sweet/dry/bitter character. In this case it is less pronounced than in the Thornton but it’s present all the same.

Though DeLoach's Lake County Zinfandel-- a regular in the producer's line-up of prominent wines-- is a departure of form in its big boned nature, it is entirely in keeping with its sister wines in terms of balance. Fragrant and spicy, with a depth of blackberry fruit, the finish is long and satisfying. This is a fine food-pairing with wine. - VB

Soft and ripe, with raspberry and toasty oak aromas that lead to appealing flavors of ripe black cherry, caramel and spice. Drink now through 2019.

Smooth and concentrated with a magnificent core of raspberry, wild berry, blackberry and pomegranate flavors that all come together perfectly on a spicy, lengthy finish; great value.

Editor's Choice. Online Exclusive. Easy to like for its ripe fruit, cola, spice and meaty flavors. This is DeLoach's basic Zinfandel, and it's very good due to the balance that makes it so drinkable.

A touch raw and pithy in texture, this offers a racy edge to its citrus, peach and nectarine flavors. Clean and snappy on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 41 cases made. –JL
