Dehlinger is home to one of the few vineyards in the coastal Russian River Valley that grows Cabernet Sauvignon, the classic grape variety of the Bordeaux region. Our coastal hillside Cabernet vines ripen at the very end of the growing season, with the cold nights and mild days of late October. The wines resemble the classically balanced, cassis-scented wines of Bordeaux. Our four-and-one-half acre Cabernet Sauvignon block has 2,466 vines planted in 1982.
