2012 Dehlinger Goldridge Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., $55. This wine comes from deeper Goldridge soils in the Estate Vineyard and tends to have more approachability. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Regal aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and rose petal lead to a mid weight plus styled wine with a delicious core of black cherry fruit that is supported by silky tannins and balanced acidity. A thread of toasty oak plays in the background. This wine has gorgeous balance and generous amounts of black cherry and blackberry fruit haunting the uplifting peacock tail finale. Score: 94.
