07 Adrian Fog Oppenlander ($70)☺☺☺ 

Adrain Fog has a distinctive style and this 07 Oppenlander is among the best of his production. Stewart Dorman, the winemaker, uses a blend of Pinot clones in his wine which come together beautifully to build a great wine. The Oppenlander just gushes blackberries and minerality and the hint of spice laced with the oakiness of new barrels gives this wine such great complexity. Goes really well with Salmon (trust me)
