Founded in 1975 by Carole & Tom Dehlinger, Dehlinger winery is still family owned and operated by their two daughters – Eva Dehlinger & Carmen. The estate is primarily composed of 20+ year old vines that are dry-farmed with a focus on sustainability, producing roughly 3,000cs of Estate Chardonnay & Pinot Noir annually and has been a consistent top player in the Russian River Valley for about two decades now.
Always a critic darling, this is what Antonio Galloni and Vinous had to say about the latest set of releases, “Eva Dehlinger presented a gorgeous set of 2019s. Over the last few years Dehlinger has added an extra dimension of finesse to the wines, and that really comes through in this tasting. These new releases are fabulous.” They’re not even the ones who went gangbusters– Wine Enthusiast went to town on Eva’s latest releases, making them all but impossible to get a hold of…unless you know someone ;).
Hoping to make a splash with the Nicholas Wines crowd on the East Coast, they’ve offered up their three highest rated wines – though there’s not much to go around. The four-pack sampler gives you a chance to try them all. Each four pack includes:
(2 btls) Dehlinger Estate Unfiltered Chardonnay 2019 (96 Pts, WE)
(1 btl) Dehlinger Estate Pinot Noir Goldridge Vineyard 2019 (96 Pts, WE)
(1 btl) Dehlinger Estate Pinot Noir Altamont Vineyard 2018 (97 Pts, WE – 94 Pts, WS)
