2013 Pinot Noir 'Oppenlander Vyd', Mendocino (Comptche)

2013 Pinot Noir 'Oppenlander Vyd', Mendocino (Comptche)

Winemaker's notes:

100% Cordon pruned.   20% Whole Cluster fermentation.  Fermented in small, open-top vessels. No new oak.  25% 1yr old French oak, 75% Neutral French oak.  2 years aged in barrel.  Bottled in 2015.  

Clear garnet, with a little bit of brickiness.  Dried rose petals, a little mintiness, bright red plum, satsuma plum, a little forest floor earth.   On the palate, bright red fruit, cherry, nice acidity, balanced, great mid-palate, medium length.  Finish is a little riper with red raspberry and yellow pomegranate.   Astringency shows up which gives it a youthful glow.  Doesn’t taste like a ‘13.  It’s holding up well.   No oak perception.    

This is a classic pairing for duck with a cherry glaze.  The earthiness will go with all sorts of things as well, like brussel sprouts, or a salad nicoise.
