Bottle Notes, Pinot Noir

2013 Dehlinger Pinot Noir Goldridge – Bottle Notes

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 Pinot Nir is sourced from the estate vineyards on Vine Hill Road. Goldridge is a reference to the soil type.

Crimson in color. 14.9% ABV. Breathtaking nose of red fruits, cloves, cola and forest floor. Medium body with exquisite acidity. Exceptionally elegant and graceful. Cherry, pomegranate, cranberry and earth on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Russian River Valley Pinot Noir with a Burgundian flair. Aging brilliantly. Best over the next 3-5 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.
