  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($35) Medium red. Plum and strawberry fruit aromas complicated by underbrush and earth; very pinot. Sweet, full and intensely flavored, with nicely integrated acidity giving the wine a juicy character. Not yet complex but boasts nicely concentrated fruit and finishes with easygoing tannins.

    Appealing for its ripe, fleshy wild berry and blackberry jam flavors, picking up a cola, herb and spicy quality on the aftertaste. 1,600 cases made.

    There are 1,600 cases of the 2001 Pinot Noir Goldridge Vineyard, a dark ruby-colored effort reminiscent of a premier cru from the Cote de Beaune. Aromas and flavors of pomegranate, apple skins, as well as sweet and sour cherries are present in this medium-bodied, suave, elegant, tasty Pinot.

    It is sometimes tough to believe that the Goldridge Pinot is Dehlinger?s lowest level effort. The wine reminds me of the 2001 Kistler Sonoma Coast. Slightly cloudy medium black cherry red color with strong aromas of apple, mint, spice, dark fruits, slight earth, and lightly candied plum and cherry. Slightly tart on the palate with excellent length.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
