The Ojai Vineyard "Clos Pepe Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2006

Member Review by EMark:

Very attractive ruby color that allows just a bit of light to pass through. Something of a rustic, barnyard nose. Very pleasant on the tongue—some red fruit (cherry, strawberry, plum)—but not terribly up-front. A medium-bodied wine. A light touch of acid that is more discernable in the its medium-length aftertaste than in the mouth.

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
