2012 Dehlinger "High Plains" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1245918 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dehlinger's 2012 Pinot Noir High Plains is bright and chiseled to the core, with beams of underlying acidity and tannin that give the wine its sense of energy. Sweet floral and spiced notes develop in the glass, but the High Plains is mostly distinguished by its pure mineral-driven cut, which serves to balance some of the inherent richness of these soils. This is a striking, beautifully expressive Pinot from Dehlinger. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark *Two Stars* Dehlinger Pinots are generally wines of remarkable power and depth, but, at their very best as is evidenced here, they manage to be big and very well-structured without giving up the variety's invitingly supple feel. Starting with its incisive, richly oaked, black cherry aromas and running all the way through its multi-layered flavors and on into its exceptionally long finish, this one hits all of the right marks and earns another tip of the CGCW hat for this perennially successful producer. Inner quote mark (2/2016)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tight and structured, with vivid acidity and snappy berry freshness, offering a mix of raspberry, huckleberry and blueberry flavors, delivered in a restrained, refined style that maintains subtlety on the finish. Should age well. (JL) Inner quote mark (12/2015)
