This Zinfandel is our super-Nova in a glass! Planted in the 1960s, the Nova Vineyard lies in Lake County on the benchland of Mount Konocti. This head-trained vineyard is planted in ancient alluvial soils at 1500 ft elevation. The organically grown vines receive only one watering during the growing season, and the crop is thinned to approximately four tons per acre. Together these practices encourage the vines to develop smaller berries with complex, more concentrated flavors.
|The Russian River Valley has come to be known as "America’s Burgundy,” and DeLoach is proud to have been an important factor in this distinction. DeLoach’s wines have won numerous accolades and scored many 90+ ratings over the years. The Wine Spectator’s James Laube calls DeLoach "one of California’s best producers of chardonnay,” and Wine and Spirits has proclaimed DeLoach "Winery of the Year” nine times.
Our mission is to produce exceptional wines that spotlight the singular personality of the Russian River Valley in a socially responsible, environmentally sensitive way. We seek to foster a better understanding of the Valley’s unique terroir, with its rare and bountiful convergence of the sea, the soil and the stars.
