2012 Dehlinger High Plains Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., $75. From the top sections of the Dehlinger Estate Vineyard, only produced in special vintages. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Delicate aromas of cherries, baking spices and sandalwood lead off. Very elegant, but highly flavorful, with a delicious core of bright cherry and red berry fruits with a bit of sauvage. The tannins are well matched in this mid weight styled wine and the finish has pleasing persistence. Score: 92. Reviewed June 5, 2015
