1998 Dehlinger "Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #993333 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep, fresh red. Bright aromas of cherry and earth. Sweeter and more fleshy than the Goldridge bottling, with more fruit intensity. Sappy note of maraschino cherry. This also has more middle-palate material to support its tannins. Finishes with excellent persistence. Has the guts to age and grow in complexity. The Estate bottling comes from hillside and hilltop sites, while the Octagon is a special selection from these favored spots. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2001)

K&L Notes

91 points Robert Parker: "The outstanding 1998 Pinot Noir Estate (1,050 cases) is a full-bodied, powerful wine with plenty of jammy cherry fruit intermixed with smoke, chocolate, earth, and allspice. Voluptuously-textured, chewy, and pure, this is a delectable Pinot Noir that will not make old bones, but for drinking over the next 4-5 years, it is hard to resist." (12/2000)
