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.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($32) Bright yellow-gold. Melon, pear, pungent spices and flowers on the ripe nose, along with suggestions of dusty minerals. Densely packed and supple, with a restrained sweetness and a strong spicy overtone to its orchard fruit flavors. Finishes long and strong, with assertive spiciness and an echo of sweet melon. There's a good portion of the musque clone of chardonnay in here, Dehlinger told me.
