Ojai Vineyard Santa Barbara Syrah 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

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

I found this wine to be very much light a provencal rose- light pink color, tight acidity, floral nose with light berry flavors on the mouth.

Adam and Helene Tomah, proprietors of the superb Ojai winery make this superbly dry Rose from a blend of Pinot Noir and Syrah. It sports a sparkly salmon copper colored wine with luscious cinnamon, orange peel and dominant cranberry characteristics in the taste and aroma.
