A beautiful medium garnet hue, the Oppenlander is consistently full of black fruit. This vintage is no exception as the nose reveals blackberry, bitter cocoa, and an intense thread of rose petal. On the palate, black plum is layered with allspice, and sage. Electric acidity and fine grained tannins give the wine the structure to balance a variety of foods, but the lengthy finish which has just a hint of creaminess makes this perfect to sip on its own.
