Tightly wound, intense and concentrated, with a complex mix of earthy cherry, wild berry, blueberry and spicy nutmeg notes. Tannins provide firm structure. The mineral and pebble flavors join the rich fruit on the finish. Best from 2007 through 2011.... Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2004 Ojai Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard 750ml

Ojai works with vineyards along the Central Coast to produce wines from a diversity of grape varieties. Owner Adam Tolmach believes that "most people are sick of the McDonaldization of every product", and he endeavors to make wines of character from low yields and minimal intervention. Simply put, Clos Pepe is a voluptuous example of Pinot with a suppleness and richness that make it irresistible right now! It has earned a "91" rating from the top U.S. critic.

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Ojai Pinot Noir Clos Pepe 2004 : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 88 POINTS Stern and austere is the dark ruby 2005 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe. This cuvee exhibits sweet and sour cherries in its premier cru Cote de Beaune-like personality. With good freshness, tart acidity, and a clipped, slightly narrow finish, it should be consumed earlier rather than later as it should become increasingly desiccated. WA # , #172 (Aug 2007) Robert Parke CONNOISSEUR'S GUIDE REVIEW: 92 POINTS Smoky oak spice and suggestions of berries join the more conventional themes of well-ripened black-cherries in the deep and well-formed aromas of this very hedonistic Pinot Noir, and the wine's flavors show no let-up in richness with a fine interplay of plums, cherries, sweet oak and spice. A mouth-filling wine that is framed with a bit more than varietally typical tannins, it is built with an eye to real improvement with age and has the fruity stuffing and depth to grow increasingly better for five or more years. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine Volume 31 Issue 8: June 2007OJAI PINOT NOIR CLOS PEPE 2004
