Professional Reviews For This Wine

Vinfolio | Rating: 96

Darkly opaque in color. Aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cocoa, clove and mint, showing additional polished cranberry and creamy pie spice nuances after the wine is in the glass for 20 minutes. Deep and intense on the palate with black cherry, cocoa dust, blueberry, licorice and cola. Exquisite purity and length with smooth acidity, showing a bit of sassafras and orange zest on the finish.

(14.9%; $38) An extremely ripe nose of chocolate and spiced plum combines with exceptionally rich and concentrated medium full fleshy flavors underpinned by suave tannins and a delicious if moderately warm finish. This actually is nicely balanced despite the substantial alcohol and while it's not subtle, those who enjoy very ripe pinot will find much to like here.

About This Producer

The Dierberg Vineyard is located off the coast of the Pacific Ocean at the southern end of the Santa Maria Valley. The land features a variety of hillside slopes, sandy loam soils and western exposures, ideally suited for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With Nicholas DeLuca as head winemaker, and David Ramey of Ramey Wine Cellars Dierberg has been able to produce some fantastic recent vintages. Black cherry, violet and cola spill onto the palate from the Pinot Noir while the Chardonnay possesses dense notes of butterscotch, tropical fruit, and citrus and a long, smooth finish.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
