Bottle Notes, Pinot Noir

2008 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 Noir is sourced from the estate vineyards on Vine Hill Road. Goldridge is a reference to the soil type.

Ruby red in color. 14.8% ABV. Gorgeous nose of red fruits, cloves and forest floor. Medium body with exquisite acidity. Beautiful up front fruits balanced with an earthy rusticity. Cherry, baking spices sarsaparilla and earth on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. There is an elegance to this wine that takes your breath away. Sensational Pinot Noir.

My rating: 96 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.
