1988 Dehlinger Estate Lot #2 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

12.9% alc. $50 (current secondary market). · Slight brick color to rim. Very nice aromas of black cherries, seasoned oak, toast and leather. Tart cherry and cranberry flavors displaying a faded, earthy character. Lingering grapefruit peel on the finish with minimal tannins. Some charm but the fruit is diluted and the acidity has come to the forefront. Reviewed September 19, 2009
