Coming from the northern edge of California, the 2014 Pinot Noir Oppenlander was harvested October 1 and saw 30% whole clusters and 25% new French oak. it has a deeper ruby color to go with classic Pinot Noir notes of black cherries, forest floor, violets and incense. Medium-bodied, supple, elegant and beautifully textured, it has good acidity and some chewy, rustic tannin on the finish. It should be relatively approachable on release, yet benefit from short term cellaring and have 8-10 years of longevity. It's a rock-solid Pinot Noir. Paul Gordon and winemaker Scott Shapley (who also makes the wines for Roar in the Santa Lucia Highlands) continue to make superb, Northern Rhone-inspired wines from the Mendocino and Yorkville Highlands regions of California.
