1997 Dehlinger Goldridge Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $39. Note the wrinkles in the hand-applied label. · Reddish-brown in color. Old wine aromas of old book, roasted plum, sawdust and worn leather. Impressive fruit concentration for a 13-year-old wine and drinking beautifully. The tannins have completely faded away and the juicy and silky dark fruits complimented by hints of citrus, spice and seasoned oak make for a delicious treat. This wine will appeal to lovers of old Pinot Noir. Reviewed January 27, 2011
