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) Opaque purple. Blackberry, cassis and cherry-vanilla on the nose, with hints of tobacco and cedar adding complexity. Pliant and sweet on the palate, with primary dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and a good whack of vanillin oak and spices. Supple tannins build with air and add definition to the long, sappy finish. Showing its 50% new oak right now but the fruit seems more than up to it.
