This library vertical features the 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages of our wine club favorite, Oehlman Vineyard, Pinot Noir!
The Oehlman family has been farming their land on Vine Hill Road in the heart of Russian River Valley for five generations. These wines have been cellared 2-4 years and will drink best 2020-2021 Enjoy this vertical now!
Our Pinot Noir vintages from the Oehlman Vineyard are all award winners in their own right! Overall they boast a luscious mouthfeel with an ever so subtle hint of earthiness; bright acidity on the palate, hints of toasted vanilla and rose pedal crescendo with a luscious cherry finish and light tannins. Enjoyable to the last drop!
Our Oehlman Pinots are extremely versatile and pair with a broad range of dishes, from roasted duck, pork tenderloin or even southern fried chicken and biscuits to tender, broiled salmon, drizzled with rich Hollandaise.
Only a few cases-worth of verticals available.
Typically, we ferment the crushed grapes in small one-ton, open top fermenters. The small tanks allow us to closely control the fermentation temperature. We press out each lot as it reaches dryness in a small basket press to ensure gentle pressing and avoid extracting tannin. The pressed wine goes into 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months.
