Although deep and defined Pinot Noir first leaps to mind when Dehlinger's name is mentioned, this ripe and well-crafted Syrah is a wine much deserving of attention as well. It has plenty of substance and grip, and its subtle peppery seasonings and its suggestions of smoked meat convincingly put it on the varietal track, yet it stands apart from the crowd by dint of its precision and professional winemaking hand. Its rare mix of power and real finesse bodes quite well for the future, and, if needing at least three or four years of further patience, it could grow for a decade or more.
The dense purple-colored 2006 Syrah Estate exhibits lots of peppery, meaty, blackberry, and cassis fruit notes, a hint of road tar, an opulent, fleshy mouthfeel, and impressive intensity as well as purity. Dehlinger’s Syrahs are aged in 500 liter pungeons as opposed to smaller barrrels. (RP)
Inky purple. Classic syrah scents of cassis, black raspberry, violet, smoke and olive tapenade. Sharply focused red and dark berry flavors are complicated by cracked pepper and candied flowers, with supple tannins adding support. The floral note gains strength on the pure, sweetly persistent finish. This energetic wine is delicious now but I'd give it at least another three years of aging. (ST)
