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.

($50) Deep, bright red. Spicy red- and blackcurrant on the nose, with slow-building floral and smoky mineral notes adding complexity. Fresh red fruit flavors are firmed by tangy minerals and take on a refreshingly bitter cherry skin quality with air. Puts on weight in the glass and finishes with excellent focus and lingering floral character. This is one of the few cabernets still made from vines in the Russian River Valley. (JR)
