Winemaker Notes

Dehlinger's Goldridge Pinot noir pay homage to the deeper goldridge soils where the vines tend to be more vigorous. A bright, red fruit character and approachable structure are typical of the Dehlinger Goldridge Pinot noirs, a brand we have crafted since the mid-1990s.

WS 95
Wine Spectator
A riveting wine, with fragrant, delicate plum and black cherry notes. Firms nicely, dipping into red and black licorice flavors, displaying lively acidity and ending with a laser beam of fruitiness. Drink now through 2018.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pinot Noir Goldridge Vineyard is a juicy, forward wine loaded with expressive dark red fruit, sweet floral notes, licorice and French oak. This plump Pinot Noir is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit retains its juiciness. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

Dehlinger, California
The Dehlinger vineyard, family operated since 1975, comprises 45 acres of rolling hillside vines on a mixture of Goldridge and Altamont soils in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. A landmark Octagon House, also dating from 1975, stands atop a hill near the entrance to the property. Varietals grown and produced are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, with a combined annual volume averaging 7000 cases. The winery is owned by winemaker Tom Dehlinger and his wife, Carole, who live together on the property. Two of their four children, Carmen and Eva, have been involved full-time with the operation since 2008.

While the Russian River Valley is a large appellation with multiple climate zones and soil types, it is best known for cool-climate varieties, with Pinot Noir as the most celebrated. The grapes benefit from a reliable late afternoon flow of Pacific Ocean fog through the Petaluma Gap and along the Russian River Valley that ensures slow and steady ripening and the preservation of grape acidity. Today many of California’s most highly regarded Pinot Noir vineyards are in the Russian River Valley, along with its sub-appellation, Green Valley.

Historically Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs had bright red fruit and delicate earthy, mineral notes. But changes in viticultural and winemaking practices have led to stylistic changes in some of the region’s wines. Adjustments to canopy management, among other techniques, have resulted in riper fruit and bolder wines as well. These show flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cola, spice and darker, loamy earth tones, accenting traditional Pinot Noir notes of strawberry, raspberry and light cherry.
