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.

Bright purple. Highly expressive aromas of black raspberry, candied violet, incense and black pepper, with a hint of five-spice powder in the background. Deep, savory and precise, with spicy dark berry flavors that stain the palate and gain flesh with air. Quite Old World in style, finishing with intense spiciness and a late jolt of bitter chocolate. This is balanced to age.
