Ojai Pn 08 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A vineyard blend of mostly Bien Nacido and Solomon Hills fruit with some Presidio and Fe Ciega. Elegant in style, it is led by a natural core of acidity. Vinified for 14 months in older French oak barrels without fining and filtration, so the wine is not heavily influenced by wood in the bouquet or palate, just purity of fruit, subtlety and nuance.

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
