About Dehlinger Winery
Founded in 1973 by Tom Dehlinger, a UC Davis graduate, Dehlinger Winery has a rep for quality not quantity. Production here has topped out at about 7,000 cases per vintage, a figure that has risen steadily since the initial 14 acres were planted in 1975.
88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006
Full ruby-red. Brooding aromas of dark berries, licorice and menthol. Intense but a bit raw, with slightly herbaceous flavors of peppery black fruits. Not yet expansive; in fact, this seems a bit green. Finishes with broad, palate-coating tannins and a repeating peppery nuance.
