2001 Dehlinger High Plains Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 225 cases, $48. Sourced from 13 year old Pommard vines. · Delicate scents of cherries, spice, oak and green garden. Delicious cherry core with a slight fennel note that is complimentary. This wine has that Dehlinger restraint - an elegance that makes Pinot Noir so appealing. The wine is still holding enough structure to last another five years. A terrific wine that could stand up to any 2001 1er Cru Burgundy. Reviewed September 19, 2009
