2001 Dehlinger "Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1008091 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Elegant and pretty aromatically with good spice and lovely pinot character that lead to rich, naturally sweet and pure middle weight flavors that offer perhaps the best detail of any wine in the flight. The structure is present but buried beneath the substantial mouth coating extract and while there is a distinct touch of finishing oak, this is clearly high caliber juice. Inner quote mark (7/2004)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Very keen in varietal focus and only a wee bit less well-filled than its pricier mates, this more widely available Pinot sports a full complement of ripe cherry fruit and rich, vanilla cream oak. Supple and polished but deep enough for aging despite its all too evident charms, this one will tempt even the best of us, and perhaps it is the one to drink while the limited bottlings above age to perfection. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (6/2004)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good dark red. Deeper, darker aromas of black plum, mocha, licorice and nutty oak. Tighter and more precise, with juicy flavors of plum, cherry, currant and cola. This offers lovely inner-mouth energy and delineation and very good thrust. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001 Pinot Noir Estate (all from the vineyard’s hillsides and hilltops) boasts a saturated dark ruby color as well as a big, sweet, earthy nose filled with black cherries, strawberry jam, and flower aromas. Ripe and medium to full-bodied, with hints of plums as well as figs in the flavors, this long, elegant, attractive, pure, firm 2001 will benefit from an additional 12-18 months of cellaring. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)
