Sip Mendocino

Baxter 2013 Oppenlander Pinot Noir

Baxter 2013 Oppenlander Pinot Noir

Located near the town of Comptche, only nine miles from the Pacific Ocean, the Oppenlander vineyard is rapidly becoming one of the most celebrated vineyards in Mendocino. Planted on it's own roots, the vines seamlessly uptake nutrients, ripening beautifully and producing grapes with a unique local identity. The slightly cooler climate helps this vineyard produce a wine with an intense backbone and a vivid color, without overpowering the delicate aromas and smooth mouthfeel desirable in a Pinot Noir. This wine is made using old world methods and a completely natural approach to vinification. Harvested by hand, each clone was fermented separately in small open top tanks using native yeast. The grapes were punched down by hand serveral times daily, then pressed in a basket press. The wine is aged gently in 100% neutral French oak barrels for 20 months before being bottled.
