The 2011 Pinot Noir Goldridge Vineyard bristles with energy. Dark raspberries, flowers, spices and crushed rocks jump from the glass. There is a sense of focus and pure tension in the 2011 that is highly appealing. Savory, saline notes appear on the finish, adding further brightness. This is a promising wine from Dehlinger. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021.

Bright ruby-red. Intense cherry and blackberry scents are lifted by notes of allspice and fresh flowers. On the palate, juicy, round red and dark berry flavors pick up energy and spiciness with air, along with a hint of vanilla. Finishes sweet and silky, with gentle tannins and a zesty mineral quality.
