Dehlinger Winery is located in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County and was founded in 1975 by Tom and Carole Dehlinger. Eva Dehlinger took over winemaking duties in 2007. Known for their Pinot Noir, Dehlinger also makes Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah
Dehlinger Syrah is sourced from the estate vineyards on Vine Hill Road. Goldridge is a reference to the soil type.
Great color. Call it bright crimson. 14.9% ABV. Great nose of red fruits, flowers and baking spices. Medium to full bodied with exquisite acidity. Tremendous purity of fruit. Black cherry, raspberry liqueur, coffee and minerals on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. Really gorgeous Syrah that I truly wish I had more of. Best over the next 2-4 years.
My rating: 95 points.
Dehlinger Winery has a great reputation among wine connoisseurs. Wine writers have consistently given strong reviews while praising the winery for its uniqueness, quality, consistency and value. About 75% of their wine is sold via the mailing list. Amazing wines that are well worth the search.
