Oppenlander Vineyard is well off the beaten path in Mendocino County outside of the town of Comptche. It’s about eight and a half miles from the Pacific Ocean as the crow flies at an elevation of 250 feet. Oppenlander is owned by the Shandel family, 5th generation owners of the property, and was originally homesteaded in the 1860s by their ancestors from Denmark (via the Gold Rush in Australia). The vineyard sees consistently cool temperatures across the growing season and is harvested later than other regions. This cooler temperature range and coastal proximity can deliver a certain “oceanic acidity,” lending structure and complexity to the wine. The beautiful ruby color of the 2014 Oppenlander is a prelude to the fresh black fruits attheforefrontofthenose. Thenoseisdenselypackedwitharomasofplumandblack cherry, cedar, brioche, sagebrush, and a hint of gardenia. The laser focus of the palate exhibits the same red fruits and balances weight with bright acidity. The finish is lengthy and the fruit flavors are complimented by a light toastiness in the finish and a touch of florality. Drink now and over the next 5-7 years.
