Fe Ciega Pinot Noir 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Oaky and cedary on the nose with a touch of burnt orange peel and subtle gamy tones accenting the light red fruit. Soft on entry with well concealed acids that opens on the mid-palate to reveal rich, sweet fruit on the mid-palate that exhibits lovely purity and freshness. the finish is long with earthy and toasty accents adding complexity. This is already showing very well. 91pts

The Ojai Vineyard, owned by Adam & Helen Tolmach, works closely with a dozen different vineyards on the Central Coast of California and produces wines from syrah, grenache, mourvedre, pinot noir, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and viognier. About 6000 cases are produced each year, divided between 15 bottlings, most of which are vineyard designated wines. The key to producing special wine is in the care taken growing the grapes. There is an inverse relationship between quantity and quality when it comes to grapes, so rather than purchasing ours by the ton, we have long term agreements with our growers to buy the fruit by the acre. This lets us culture the vines and thin the crop to our strict specifications, yet allows the grower to receive a fair return. In the winery we like to watch the development of the wine carefully, yet prefer to do as little as possible. Experience has shown us that the least amount of moving, pumping, fining and filtering is always best. The ultimate objective is to show off the distinctive character of a vineyard site. Read less
