The 2011 Pinot Noir Goldridge and 2010 Pinot Noir Goldridge both came from cool years.The 2010 Pinot Noir Goldridge possesses a more intense bouquet of black cherries, forest floor and spice. Excellent acidity buttresses a fuller-bodied, more concentrated wine that has more substance as well as a layered mouthfeel. (RP)
Deep ruby. Complex scents of red and dark berry preserves, smoky herbs and cola, with a spicy overtone. Pungent and palate-staining raspberry and blackberry flavors are buoyed by a zesty mineral nuance. The dark berry and cola notes resonate on a long, smoky and appealingly sweet finish. Plenty rich but comes off balanced and quite pure. (ST)
Dehlinger's 2010 Pinot Noir Goldridge Vineyard bursts from the glass with black cherries, cola, mocha, licorice and sweet spices. A rich, forward, voluptuous wine, the 2010 is surprisingly open at this stage. It is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Hints of sage and a host of savory herbs add complexity on the finish. (AG)
Graceful and elegant, with spicy black tea, black cherry, fresh earth and subtle mineral and herb notes. Ends with a watermelon-strawberry touch. (JL)
Far less plush than its mate above despite sporting a similar sense of high ripeness, and a touch brushy in its aromatic seasoning, this full-bodied, fairly supple effort focuses on cherries with suggestions of ripe strawberries to its medium-depth fruit. Its early openness on the palate does drift into a bit of late tannin and a hint of bitterness, but richness and focus save the day and keep things on track. *One Star*
