#5 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
The fruit for our "Estate Pinot Noirs" comes from the hilltop sections of the vineyard. The wines tend to showcase darker fruit flavors and aromas of baking spices. The inclusion of a small percentage of whole clusters in the fermentation lends greater structure and aging potential to these bottlings.
"Aromas of plum and blackberry jam turn firm and intense on the palate, gaining depth, nuance and traction. Finishes with a strong burst of flavors. Drink now through 2018. 1,050 cases made."
"The flagship Pinot, the 2008 Pinot Noir Estate, comes from the finest hilltop parcels in his beautiful Russian River vineyard. Its dense plum/ruby color is followed by a perfumed nose of forest floor, and sweet black raspberries, black cherries and plums intermixed with a hint of Asian spice. Fleshy and medium to full-bodied with silky tannins, good acidity and purity, it demonstrates a commitment to intelligent winemaking. These wines are never over-oaked or extreme in any fashion. The 2008 Pinot Noirs continue Dehlinger’s nearly unbroken record of success with Pinot that started in the mid-seventies.
The Wine Advocate
"Bright ruby-red. Deeply pitched black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with a floral nuance that becomes more pronounced with air. Juicy, penetrating dark fruit and bitter cherry flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and become sweeter on the back half. Rich but lively pinot with excellent closing thrust and lingering florality. By all means give this wine some bottle age. Dehlinger told me that this bottling was made from fruit from his highest-altitude vines."
