2003 Dehlinger Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., 1,300 cases, $42. Octagon and High Plains sections of vineyard included. · Very floral nose with overtones of tequila. The flavors trump the nose with a rich parade of full-bodied dark red fruits that are smoothly textured and framed by reigned-in tannins. My least favorite of the vertical tasting.
