2001 Dehlinger "High Plains" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1010825 92 points Connoisseurs Guide

 Nominally lower in alcohol than the special bottlings above, this wine smells a bit riper owing, in part, to a dried grape, crushed black cherry component to its concentrated, outgoing aromas. Mouthfilling in palate impression and full of ripe, compact fruit flavors tinged with oak and a nuanced note of dried violets, this bold but not overly tannic bottling would seem to want service with long cooked meats like Osso Buco.  (6/2004)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 ($48; from vines planted in 1989; the soil here features more clay and a mixed mineral content and drains well) Good red-ruby. Wild, perfumed aromas of briary black fruits; reminded me of a wine from Morey-Saint-Denis. Dense, silky, fat and sweet, but with very good verve and definition thanks to sound acidity. A broad, mouthfilling pinot that finishes with rather suave, tongue-dusting tannins.  (6/2004)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A limited cuvee, there are 225 cases of the 2001 Pinot Noir High Plains. It possesses a deep ruby color in addition to a fragrant bouquet of ripe strawberries, sweet cherries, loamy soil, and a hint of oak. This medium to full-bodied, fruit-dominated, spicy, rich, complex effort should drink well for 7-8 years.  (12/2003)
