2016 Oppenlander Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

Brambly, peppery, herbed smoked meats laced with maple syrup power the scent of fruit from this obscure vineyard amid a redwood forest clearing in a remote, but maritime cool site in Mendocino County. Flavors are intense and complex with near-ripe wild blackberry, strawberry pie and cranberry on the late palate.

Winemaker Notes

Alquimista Cellars is excited to announce that we are using a new closure product. Called “UNiQ”, it comes from our long-time supplier Ganau, is made from finely ground natural cork that has been put through a high-intensity steam cleaning process at 180°. process at 180° C. This eliminates any trace of TCA (the chemical compound that causes wine to be “corked”) as well as defending against undesired aromas and off flavors.
