Light crimson in color. Almost translucent. 14.9% ABV. Pure nose of red fruits, cloves and earth. Medium body with perfect acidity. Super clean on the palate with flavors of cherries, cranberries, strawberries and spice. The finish is long and seamless. Drink over the next 2-3 years. This bottle was a relief after after some problematic bottles from '04 and '05. Special wine. Everything I love about Dehlinger.
This wine is quite nice. Aromas of spice, crushed rock, bright red fruit with a graphite edge, the wine is silky smooth with warm red fruits of black cherry and black raspberry fading into cranberry where notes of earth and oak spice emerge on the medium long finish. The wine is in a good spot right now and I will drink my other bottle within the next year or two.
