DeLoach Russian River Estate Pinot Noir 2009
This Pinot Noir opens with aromas of ripe Bing cherries and rose petal. Notes of fresh strawberry blend with complex flavors of shitake mushroom, forest floor, and bright notes of citrus peel. This wine is medium-bodied with well-integrated acidity and supple tannins. Finishes nicely with cola and lovely brown spices.
At first this is a tumble of forest scents, from mushrooms to conifer and eucalyptus. Then is shades toward eggplant purple in its fruit, with wood spice lasting. As it settles down in the glass, the fruit becomes bosky and dusky while holding that spice. Decant if for braised rabbit.
