Dehlinger Estate Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Dehlinger has been producing Estate-grown Russian River Valley Pinot noir since the late 1970s, and to this day, all fruit comes from the Dehlinger Vineyard. Planted between 1975 and 1989, the Pinot vines are primarily clones of Pommard and Swan, with smaller amounts of Dijon 777 and Martini

The grapes for Dehlinger Wines are all grown on our Estate Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. The initial vines were planted in 1975 and followed by subsequent planting through the early 1990s. We are currently initiating a vineyard redevelopment on several of our vineyard blocks. In-house Vineyard Manager Marty Hedlund has been over-seeing the 45 acres of vines since 1988. Hedlund works with the vineyard crew to ensure that each area of the vineyard is appropriatedly pruned, managed, and thinned to bring out the potential of each peice of soil. The entire vineyard has been retrained to a "lyre"-shaped split-canopy, vertical shoot-positioned trellis system which allows for superior light penetration to the fruiting zone and systematic hand care.

This is what Pinot Noir lovers are after. Smooth, complex and civilized. Big but not jammy or monster fruity. Still improving.

The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Pinot Noir Estate (1,300 cases produced) reveals notes of damp earth, underbrush, black cherries, raspberries, and a hint of meatiness.

The 2002 Pinot Noir Estate is a dense, structured wine. Ten percent stems were used in making this wine, where none were used in the Goldridge Vineyard.
